Overview

This volume discusses the emerging changes in Indian management culture both at the macro and micro levels and their impact on domestic and multinational businesses based in India. While the Indian business scenario is changing rapidly, the attitude, orientation and practice of management has been slow to adapt. Indian managers have found it difficult to change policies both at the enterprise and the employee level to match an increasingly global and international environment.

This book discusses key issues such as: Indian management culture and emerging challenges; leadership styles and leadership issues that face Indian corporations; ethics and values and their impact on leadership and management culture; the issues confronting global corporations working in India; tackling human resources issues in the Indian context; and the emergence of the new global Indian manager.
