This edited collection aims to present a sound theoretical and empirical basis for understanding the evolving and changing nature of culture in Indian organisations. This collection will incorporate contributions from national and international academics with active interests of researching in organisational culture and management in domestic firms and Indian multinationals. In addition to covering topical issues on culture, this collection offers novel theoretical lenses and methodological approaches to analyse and understand culture in Indian organisations.
