Management in India is an amalgam of principles and practices borrowed from foreign lands and the age-old Indian values and norms extant in organisations and peoples' minds. This book is based on empirical exploration both into both the management practices prevalent now and of the past. It offers a detailed compilation of the Indian management and administrative practices from the ancient times to the present. The book also makes an in-depth study of four different, and typical, Indian organisations - the Government department, the public sector, the multinational, and the family-owned organisation. Extensive interaction with workers, employees, executives and the leadership teams brings to light many a submerged facet, both strengths and short-comings, offering guidelines for a surer grasp of the Indian organisational scene.
