Social Capital A Must For Indian IT Companies To Move Into IT Consulting, Says Professor From George Mason University

Written by J.L. Gandhi

Sincerepparttar mid 1980s, several Indian firms have gained significant market share inrepparttar 109340 U.S. in software services, IT outsourcing and IT consulting. Prof. Tojo Thatchenkery, Professor of Organizational Learning & Knowledge Management at George Mason University, has coined a term “Indian Social Capital” to describerepparttar 109341 positive characteristics and competencies attributed torepparttar 109342 Indian software professionals operating overseas. He has done extensive research to use this concept of Indian social capital to explain howrepparttar 109343 Indian firms, initially branded as “utilitarian body shops" have quickly climbed uprepparttar 109344 value chain from subcontractors to full contractors and then to something close to consulting firms.

Based on research on several firms in this domain, he has proposed that transitioning torepparttar 109345 next value chain of consulting status requires a different set of competencies and mindset. Further,repparttar 109346 same organizational mobility and glass-ceiling issuesrepparttar 109347 Indian Americans inrepparttar 109348 U.S. face as they try to move uprepparttar 109349 corporate hierarchy are likely to adversely impactrepparttar 109350 Indian firms efforts to move uprepparttar 109351 value chain. He presented research to show thatrepparttar 109352 “value migration trajectory” thatrepparttar 109353 Indian ITES firms have worked very hard to set in motion is unlikely to launch them ontorepparttar 109354 IT consulting arena. Instead, a different trajectory based on a new appreciation regarding how social capital shapes business decision atrepparttar 109355 highest level will need to be set in motion, therefore IT firms will have to actively manage this process of social capital formation to overcomerepparttar 109356 entry barriers.

The talk organized by Sona Institute of Advanced Studies (SIAS) was well attended by a large number of senior executives from leading IT and BPO organizations. SIAS is a part ofrepparttar 109357 Sona Valliappa Educational Group, which owns and runs Educational Institutions (Sona College of Technology, Sona School of Management & Thiagarajar Polytechnic at Salem) where over 5000 students study on campus.
