Thanks for this great article. I am glad you liked our book Jugaad Innovation. As you rightly pointed out, America used to be known for its jugaad spirit -- aka Yankee ingenuity -- in its early days. In particular, Ben Franklin truly embodied that Jugaad Spirit (btw he was also a pioneer of Open Source since he never patented any of his inventions!). But that jugaad spirit gradually waned in 20th century in Western economies as corporations began to invest in structured R&D processes. Take a look at this article on how to rekindle this jugaad spirit in Corporate America: http://tinyurl.com/9tclzko
