Short Description:

In today's competitive world, it is the technological strength of a nation that decides its standing in the global arena. Technology has become the prime mover behind growth and prosperity. A nation which masters technology thus derives competitive advantage and respect. India, in spite of technology denials and control regimes, has risen to the occasion and developed critical technologies for itself. The book details how these developments were nurtured through management strengths and innovative use of the nation’s resource.

Over the years, the author’s close interaction with three of India’s greatest visionary leaders- Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, Prof. Satish Dhawan and Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam- has gained him valuable experience in technology management and leadership, which became the triggering point for authoring this book. He traces past developments in technology and its status as of today, and analyses innovative strategies and techniques like the consortium approach, technology empowerment and joint ventures. Finally, the book presages future technological revolutions, their impact on society, and the organisation and leadership that would be required to maintain and improve the competitive edge in a global environment.
