Arindam has worked extensively as a consultant and as a researcher. He focuses on portfolio and growth strategy, and the competitiveness of industrial companies. He has worked with India’s central and state governments on a variety of topics covering both policy development (supporting a planning commission on development of a five-year plan for Indian industry) and transformation of large public systems to drive outcome (transformation of state school systems in Haryana and Rajasthan).

Arindam was a member of Confederation of Indian Industry's (CII) National Council for many years. He is member of International Advisory Council of Oxford India Center for Sustainable Development, Oxford University; a member of the International Advisory Board at the School of Public Policy, University of California San Diego; and a member of the advisory board and several expert committees set up by the government of India.

He is a coauthor of the 2008 book “Globality: Competing with Everyone from Everywhere for Everything,” which tells the story of a new era of international business competition—one in which global companies that grew up in rapidly developing economies are challenging the big, developed-country corporations that have been the globalization leaders for the last two decades.

Arindam is also a coauthor of BCG’s book, “Beyond Great,” which describes how the world has been transformed due to social tension, economic nationalism, and technological revolution. Business leaders are encouraged to go beyond great and “adopt a radical new playbook—one that helps their companies become resilient in the face of even the most volatile situations.”
