India’s Trade in 2020: A Mapping of Relevant Factors Introduction India's trade has generally grown at a faster rate compared to the growth of GDP over the past two decades. With the liberalization since 1991 in particular, the importance of international trade in India’s economy has grown considerably. As a result the ratio of international trade to GDP has gone up from 14 per cent in 1980 to nearly 20 per cent towards the end of the decade of 1990s. Given the trends of globalization and liberalization, the openness of Indian economy is expected to grow further in the coming two decades. The more exact magnitude of India's trade in 2020 and its proportion to India's national income...

Negotiation Practices: India

...Business and Negotiation Practices India 08 Fall Prepared by: Andrew B India: Business and Negotiation Tactics Facts and Statistics Location: Southern Asia Capital: New Delhi Population: Estimated 1.2 billion Government: Federal Republic Main 3 Religions: Hinduism, Muslim, and Sikhism Business Etiquette When entering business with people in India, the first important thing to understand is the hierarchy. Of all the cultural influences that affect the Indian business culture, hierarchy plays a key role. Indian society operates within a framework of strict hierarchy that defines roles, status and social order of its people. Dress Etiquette When dressing for a meeting it is important to know that business attire must be conservative. This means dark coloured conservative suits for men and conservative suits or dresses for women. Women are also expected to have proper hemlines and skin appropriately covered. Meeting and Greeting When doing business in India, meeting etiquette requires a handshake. However, Indians themselves use namaste, which is a Hindu greeting. This is the act where palms are brought together at chest level with a slight bow of the head. Westerners are welcomed to partake in this tradition as it shows a sign of their understanding of Indian etiquette. It is also important to know that genders play a role in greeting. Men are ok to greet other men with a handshake but are not to shake the hand of a woman. They are simply to......

As a newly appointed manager for Microsoft Corporation, within the Global Human Resource Management (HRM) division, it is my responsibility to ensure that these opportunities for business growth and expansion for Microsoft in India are approached in the most effective manner. I have prepared a comprehensive discussion on my agenda to carry out this responsibility.

Second, I discuss how Microsoft can strategically and effectively take advantage of business opportunity and growth within India, from a global HRM perspective. Third, I discuss my specific strategies related to HRM as a newly appointed manager for Microsoft. And finally, I provide a summary of my discussion.

The Practice of Dowry in India

...THE PRACTICE OF DOWRY IN INDIA The last several hundred years of women's history in India has been painted black with dowry related incidences of murder, female foeticide/infanticide and domestic violence. An examination of dowry's history reveals that it is neither an exceptional nor a recent social phenomenon in India. Many societies in the earlier days of civilization had such practices. While such practices in most western societies vanished with modernization, they became more widespread and inflationary in India. Modernizing forces, namely colonialism and commercialization, have been at work in India for years, and they would prima facie be expected to suppress such primitive practices. However, even after more than forty years of its prohibition, the practice has spread and has increasingly ingrained itself in the institution of marriage. A dowry is the transfer of parental property to a daughter as her inheritance at her marriage (i.e. inter vivos) rather than at the owner's death (mortis causa). A dowry establishes a type of conjugal fund, the nature of which may vary widely.Dowry contrasts with the related concepts of bride price and dower. While bride price (or bride service) is a payment by the groom or his family to the bride's parents, dowry is the wealth transferred from the bride's family to the groom or his family, ostensibly for the bride. Similarly, dower[->0] is the property settled on the bride herself by the groom at the time of marriage and which...

...Management J. Volume 2 No. 1 (January 1989) ,' CAPITAL BUDGETING PRACTICES OF INDIAN COMPANIES I. M. PANDEY ' Objective " The objectives of this study are: (a) to document the capital bud geting policies and practices of companies in India, a developing country, and contrast them with those of USA and UK, the developed countries, and (b) to ascertain how business executives look upon the linkage between corporate strategy and investment decision-making. Capital expenditure planning and control is a process of facilitating decisions covering expenditures on long-term assets. Since a company's survival and profitability hinges on capital expenditures, specially the major ones, the importance of the capital budgeting process cannot be over-emphasized. Sample and Methodology We have followed an intensive interview-cum-questionnaire method. Two questionnaires—one dealing with investment evaluation practice and second with other phases—were sent to companies which had agreed to participate in the study. In all, 14 companies were studied. The responding companies belonged to different businesses. In terms of size (sales and number of employees), capital intensity (net tangible fixed assets), volume of spending (capital expenditure incurred), and level of technology, they represent a variety (Table 1). The study relates to 1984. •-, Capital Expenditure: How Defined Strictly speaking, capital expenditure includes all those expenditures which are expected to......

...issues associating with practice management. The essay will critically evaluate four models of management, leadership and marketing incorporating the styles, behaviours and concepts of each. The Framework of ethics, accountability, obtaining consent and breach of confidentiality will be analysed and how this may affect a professional practitioner. Management and Leadership The terms of management and leadership are perceived as synonyms and are often used interchangeably (Mullins, 2007). Authors such as Kotter (1990) and Zaleznik (1989) believe that there is no relationship between leadership and management, while others may argue that leadership is merely a characteristic of the manager (Rees & French, 2013). Northouse (2013) argues that management was developed as a way of reducing disorder in organisations, and to encourage them to operate more effectively and efficiently. Northouse also states that within company settings managers hold a particular title, fulfil certain duties and perform appointed roles. However, not only is the manager responsible for staff supervision but also responsible for the company’s productivity, and overall performance (Mullins, 2010). Mullins (2010) suggests that there is a close relationship between both concepts of leadership and management and recognises that some authors dislike attempts to separate the two. Although the critical roles of leadership are about continuing beneficial development and management about seeking......

Hrm Practices in India

...HRM in India Summary ------------------------------------------------- India is being widely recognised as one of the most exciting emerging economics in the world. Besides becoming a global hub of outsourcing, Indian firms are spreading their wings globally through mergers and acquisitions. During the first four months of 1997, Indian companies have bought 34 foreign companies for about U.S. $11 billion dollars. This impressive development has been due to a growth in inputs (capital and labour) as well as factor productivity. By the year 2020, India is expected to add about 250 million to its labour pool at the rate of about 18 million a year, which is more than the entire labour force of Germany. This so called ‘demographic dividend’ has drawn a new interest in the Human Resource concepts and practices in India. This paper traces notable evidence of economic organisations and managerial ideas from ancient Indian sources with enduring traditions and considers them in the context of contemporary challenges. Intriduction Over many centuries India has absorbed managerial ideas and practices from around the world. Early records of trade, from 4500 B.C. to 300 B.C., not only indicate international economic and political links, but also the ideas of social and public administration. The world’s first management book, titled ‘Arlhãshastra’, written three millennium before Christ, codified many aspects of human resource practices in Ancient India. This treatise presented......
