HOW HAVE SOME DISTINGUISHED Indian companies and MNCs operating in India acquired outstanding stature and sustained extraordinary performance over long spans of time? How do they develop and sustain competitive edge?What kind of leadership, basic paradigms, values, strategic orientations, organizational characteristics, managerial processes and practices make the difference? This book attempts to answer these questions, based on an intensive, empirical, two-year path breaking research study by All India Management Association that covered some of the most outstanding, highly admired Indian companies and multinational companies operating in India. It is the first book of its kind that has focused exclusively on the Indian business context for developing original and fresh insights into the factors, characteristics and practices that develop and sustain competitive edge. The book draws heavily from the insights of some of the most successful Indian business leaders and highly experienced professional managers. Their wisdom and thoughts have been quoted verbatim from interviews to bring to surface their rich tacit knowledge, which makes it an interesting reading based on real life experiences.The authors have developed a powerful '5-I' analytical framework to explain the basic organizational attributes that develop and sustain competitiveness. The framework has been developed through a comprehensive analysis of interviews, field observations, case studies, and analysis of performance over an extended period of time.
