Bookwatch: CN Ashok, Autoprint

By 09 Apr 2018

With over 10,908 installations in a span of just 25 years, the Coimbatore-based Autoprint has emerged as a market leader in the offset printing and allied machinery manufacturing industry. And, as the managing director of the company, the credit goes to CN Ashok for steering the company’s enviable rise.

CN Ashok’s recommendations:
1 Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies by Jim Collins and Jerry I Porras: First published in 1994 by HarperBusiness, the book is a result of a six-year research project into what makes enduringly great companies. Two primary objectives for the authors’ research were to ‘to identify underlying characteristics are common to highly visionary companies’ and ‘to effectively communicate findings so they can influence management’. The resultant work presents valid examples based on stories and research data. 
2 The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R Covey: First published in 1988, the book presents an approach to being effective in attaining goals by aligning oneself to what Covey calls ‘true north’ principles of a character ethic that he presents as universal and timeless.
