Description

Internationalization Process, Strategies & Competitive Advantages of Emerging Indian Multinationals

Mohan Thite, Griffith University, Australia

Is there a distinctive ‘India Way’ of doing business? This query finds resonance not only among corporate leaders but also in academic studies focussing on emerging market multinational enterprises (EMMNEs). The speed and spread of EMMNEs has caught the world by surprise, and prompted a need to understand whether, why, and how multinationals from emerging economies are different from the ones in developed countries.

Based on research and in depth interviews over 90 senior management personnel in the headquarters and subsidiaries of eight Indian multinationals, leading to an edited book on ‘Emerging Indian Multinationals – Strategic Players in a Multipolar World’ published by Oxford University Press (2016), this seminar presents the “voices” of Indian corporate leaders to provide evidence on the internationalization process and the country and firm specific advantages of emerging multinationals. Specifically, it identifies innovation-focused differentiation, entrepreneurial ambition, compassionate capitalism and employee commitment as the core competitive advantages of Indian multinationals. In the process, the seminar underscores the need for cross national transfer of emerging management models and practice to facilitate the ‘travel of ideas’ in multiple directions.
