Bala V Balachandran is the JL Kellogg distinguished professor of Accounting & Information Management at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, US, and founder & dean of Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai and Gurgaon. For six months he stays in the US where his family is settled for the last five decades, and six months in India at Great Lakes. I’ve been trying to meet him for quite some time, but his travels have been keeping him busy, so when I received a call from his team to catch up for a 9:00 am meeting at the Great Lakes’ corporate office in Gurgaon, I jumped at the opportunity.
