Designing and Developing Organisations for Tomorrow


Designing and Developing Organisations for Tomorrow by Anup K. Singh

Even as nation states such as India are being opened up to global transactions and influence, it is widely accepted that the capability to organise effectively needs to be developed indigenously, keeping in mind cultural nuances. Recognising this, this timely book brings together the latest thinking and practice in the area of organisational design and practice in India. Written by some of India's foremost practitioners and scholars, the 20 original essays comprising this volume focus on the issues and challenges faced by organisations in various sectors of the economy. They provide insights into the contextual and cultural influences that need to be kept in mind while designing and developing Indian organisations. Included in the volume are pertinent case studies that illustrate both organisation development in practice and the management of change. This timely book brings together the latest thinking and practice in the area of organisational design and practice in India.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
