in organisational culture and management in domestic firms and Indian

collection offers novel theoretical lenses and methodological approaches to
analyse and understand culture in Indian organisations. Rich and reflective
case study insights from practitioners and academic reviews balance and
integrate the theoretical underpinnings and cultural practices in the
transforming tapestry of Indian culture. The use of rich case studies

the macro and micro level challenges faced by organisations in managing a
culture in transition. The editors are keen on including topics such as
