I am a Mechanical Reverse Engineer by trade , an unrestful Innovator by Soulprint and a Doer Ninja by worldly disposition.
A Unique Carve Out !
I have had the opportunity to work in device (widget) lifecycle and product (technology) life cycle from inception to commercializationacross incremental to disruptive innovation. I am also blessed to have worked in Operations, Sales, Program Delivery and have first hand knowledge of legal, contractual and Intellectual Property law. My key differentiator is understanding the basic building blocks of Innovation i.e. problem solving using structured intuition and robust problem formulation.
My Approach to Innovation
In corporate problem solving and in product innovation, I take the road less travelled. Howsoever, Counter-intuitive it may seem, Innovation rarely fails due to lack of creativity or genius. It almost always due to lack of discipline. I bring discipline, rigor and ninja type persistence to the process. Secondly, the best, most optimal solutions to all problems are inside the box, simple and obvious. The impactful and world changing solutions are usually unseen, discovered in a blinding flash of the obvious.
I can help you accelerate Innovation in almost any domain using high impact Open and Closed Innovation processes.
In my first career, I worked in Indian Navy’s skunkworks “Reverse Engineering Laboratory” using systems engineering and cross-functional lens to replicate rare to find components for warships. I now work in healthcare technology space using incremental and sustaining innovation to solve hard challenges in American healthcare system.

“Metaphorically look up the word Maven, as popularized by Malcolm Gladwell in his book The Tipping Point and you will find a picture of Rohit smiling back at you, his attention to detail, desire and ability to research to the finest point of detail made Rohit my “go to guy”
Head of Government Services, Inchcape
Rohit looks at the world upside down or as he says through an inverted prism. He is able to capture insights that would otherwise be missed. He is innovative and contrarian and if you are around him, expect things to change rapidly, expect to experience steep learning curves and expect to be changed.
Head of Solutions, Inchcape
I came to rely on Rohit’s incisive intellect and impressively broad grasp of how organizations are best run when refocusing the global concern.
EVP Government Services, Inchcape
I wished to unleash the “Force within” to ignite Innovation as the CEO of a fast evolving technology company in Dallas. Along came Rohit, an innovator, a legal mid-wife and a doer, creating a rare cocktail, taking us on a high speed, high impact adrenaline filled chase”

What few people know about me ?
I am an avid researcher of biological and artificial intuition and had formative experiences at an early age that sharped my predictive insight (a.k.a sixth sense. I use structured intuition as a building block of problem solving. I am also an author of an upcoming book on “Luck Re-Engineering”
