Team’s most productive meetings happen either on floors of entrepreneurs’ shops or under tree shades in villages. Some days do get lucky when team gets to sit under fans at community offices. The soul of the team belongs to villages. All major decisions, be it in product development, data-driven analytics or R&D pilots, are highly influenced by feedback of the field team. Innovations draw heavily from the ground zero experiences and maturity of field team members.
