In 2010, Sidhu published Doing Both: Capturing Today’s Profit and Driving Tomorrow’s Growth (FT Press). In this New York Times best seller, he identifies common business dichotomies and explores how successful companies avoid difficult tradeoffs and instead achieve bigger outcomes by “doing both.” Using this framework, he offers a unique view of Cisco’s consistent record of innovation and high performance.

Sidhu is a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School and holds an MBA from the Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania. He also holds a master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India.
Sidhu channels his passion for education into guest lecturing at Harvard Business School, Stanford University, and the Haas School of Business at the University of California-Berkeley. He also serves on the Board of Directors of Goodwill of Silicon Valley.
Sidhu lives in Saratoga, California, with his wife and three children.
Doing Both means approaching every decision as an opportunity to seize, not a sacrifice to endure. It means avoiding false choices, reduced expectations, and weak compromises. It means finding ways to make each option benefit and mutually reinforce the other. Using concepts from his best-selling book, Cisco Senior Vice President Inder Sidhu explains why “doing both” is today’s best growth strategy. Then, drawing on Cisco’s hard-won insights and the experiences of companies like Procter & Gamble, Whirlpool, and Harley-Davidson, Sidhu presents a complete blueprint for “doing both” across any organization.
