It was only the second meeting of the Board of the $ 43 billion-PepsiCo outside the US. CEO Indira Nooyi chose to have the meeting at Mumbai, India. Guess who spoke to this distinguished Board which includes the Chairman & CEO of Novartis and the President & CEO of Colgate-Palmolive?
Apart from hearing from Ratan Tata, CEO of the Tata Group and Azim Premji, Chairman of Wipro, the 11 member Board of PepsiCo heard about supply chain management and Six Sigma from Mumbai’s dabbawalas! Their’s is an amazing success story. They deliver 200,000 lunch boxes to Mumbai’s hungry office -goers everyday with a 99.99 % accuracy.
I am proud to be an admirer of the dabbawalas. I am sure you will be one too after you read about their fascinating story here.
