Description

Indian organizations have acquired a reputation for organizational and
social innovation and strategies centered round new concepts of frugal
innovation. It has been suggested that some of these developments
reflect specific socio-economic and framework conditions peculiar to
the Indian context. At the same time many Indian firms have yet to
institute systems and procedures required for supporting
technological, product and service innovations. The existence of
formal R&D departments/divisions, offers a ritualistic fig leaf for
innovation practice.  The absence of organizational support and a
holistic innovation strategy coupled with an integrative perspective
obscures or limits the development of a proactive innovation strategy.
The paradox of Indian innovation suggests that the necessity of
developing and managing the abundant supply of human resources in the
country is central to its conceptualization and realization. These
innovations get manifested mainly in two different patterns, one of
which relates to the management of human resources within
organizations, and the other to the creation of social enterprises for
the development of human resources outside; the latter may also take
the form of CSR initiatives by corporate organizations.

One of the implications of the ‘abundant supply of human resources in
the country’ is that Indian organizations have to adopt people-focused
business  strategies rather than the command structures cantered round
the use, performance and incentivisation of human resources. This
issue probably  makes India different from Western countries and there
is a big opportunity both for comparative research and best practice
exchange. A second interesting implication of the above is that over
the years there has been a phenomenal growth in the number of social
enterprises in India, which are different from commercial enterprises
in having ‘social development’ (rather than ‘profit-making’) as their
main objective. For this reason they are likely to be perennially
operating under resource constraints, which make it difficult for them
to survive without innovations. This track aims to investigate
innovative HR and other related strategies adopted by Indian
commercial as well as social enterprises.

Innovation is rarely a product of the internal resources of the firm
alone.  Relations with other organizations are likely to be crucial to
the success of innovations. Our track, therefore, aims also at
exploring how innovations in Indian firms are influenced by their
relations with other organizations.

Topics to be covered in the track will include (but are not restricted
to) the following:
•	Principal types and characteristics of innovations in Indian firms
•	HR innovations in Indian firms
•	Innovations in Indian social enterprises
•	Role of public bodies in supporting firms’ innovation
•	Organizational constraints and facilitators of innovation
•	Innovation in different types of industries (manufacturing/service,
hi-tech/low-tech, small/medium/large, etc)
•	Innovative relationships with other organizations
•	Support for innovations from inter-organizational relationships
•	Sources, means and types of information and knowledge important for
firms’ innovation
•	National and regional innovation systems
•	Costs, benefits and impacts of Innovations
