Books and Monographs

The faculty at the School has been actively disseminating research and knowledge to a larger audience through books and book monographs.

ISB’s faculty have published around 60 books in the scholarly, non-scholarly and textbook categories. Some of these works have featured in bestseller lists, such as “Grit, Guts, and Gumption” by Professor Rajesh Chakrabarti and the highly acclaimed textbook on statistics by Professor Galit Shmueli titled “Data Mining for Business Intelligence: Concepts, Techniques, and Applications in Microsoft Office Excel.” 

Books and MonographsChakrabarti, Rajesh. "Bond markets in India", Tokyo, Japan, Indian Capital Markets Handbook, Nomura Institute of Capital Markets, ForthcomingRead Description >Close >Bond markets in India have witnessed a sea change since the beginning of economic reforms in the early 1990s. The government securities market has practically emerged since the mid-1990s with the deregulation of interest rates and with the central and state governments accessing markets to finance progressively greater shares of their fiscal deficits. Trading platforms and settlement mechanisms have improved and new instruments have been experimented with, with varying degrees of success. In comparison, the corporate bond market has lagged. With practically no new primary market issuance of corporate bonds (though with considerable activity in the private placement segment), the current state of the corporate bond market in India is till nascent although in the last 2-3 years it has witnessed significant reform activities. The package of regulatory and infrastructural changes recommended by the Patil committee in 2005, a large part of which has already either been implemented or in the process of being completed, is likely to increase the primary and secondary market activity here in the years to come.The market for asset securitization in India is relatively small compared to other countries but has demonstrated significant growth in recent years. Asset-backed securities have led the market with mortgage-backed securities lagging. Corporate loan securitization is also considerable but mostly in the form of single loan sell-offs rather than pools of loans as in Collateralized Debt Obligations (CDOs) as securities. Securitization of trade credit or receivables, an important segment given India’s corporate financing patterns, is yet to develop.

Books and MonographsChakrabarti, Rajesh. "The Fund Management Industry in India", New Delhi, India, Capital Markets in India/Sage, ForthcomingRead Description >Close >The Asset Management Industry in India consists of a vibrant and rapidly growing mutual funds sector, an insurance sector that is dominated by unit-linked insurance plans, and Venture Capital Funds, both domestic and foreign. Also Foreign Institutional Investors form a category that pool foreign retail or institutional funds and invest in Indian debt and equity. Private Equity funds – both domestic and foreign – constitute a booming segment as well. In the last decade or so, this industry has witnessed a wide range of regulatory changes that have brought about increased competition and a very impressive growth rate. Mutual Funds and Insurance sectors have been opened up to private players only 16 and 8 years ago respectively. Venture Funds have been allowed even more recently. The Indian equity market with its remarkable bull run throughout most of this decade right up to the crisis has boosted major growth in the asset management industry. Even now, India stands poised at the threshold of major regulatory changes that can open up new segments like Real Estates and Pension Funds to retail investors and private and foreign fund managers. The rapid growth of the sector is likely to continue once the dampening effects of the ongoing crisis are behind us.

Books and MonographsRamachandran, Kavil., Bhatnagar, Navneet. "Challenges of Collective Leadership", 2015Thomas Schmidheiny Centre for Family EnterpriseRead Description >Close >The paper presents a model for 'Collective Leadership' i.e. sharing the highest leadership position in the family business, as a viable succession alternative in family businesses that have multiple competent next generation members. The model evolved from the findings from the case of an Indian diversified group, whose founder was faced with the dilemma of anointing a single successor or paving the road for a successful collective leadership mechanism. The paper suggests that the process of arriving at a collective leadership structure can be facilitated by four factors. First, a high degree of cohesion among family members reinforced by support mechanisms for joint decision-making. Second, an active founder who promotes collective functioning from early in the business’ history. Third, a capacity to anticipate areas of potential conflict among family members and evolving effective forums to prevent them. Fourth, a collectivist culture instated in the family based on the strong interpersonal bonds among members of the leadership team.

Books and MonographsGhoshal, Tanuka., Boatwright, Peter.,Malka, Malika. "Curvature from all angles: An integrative Review and Implications for Product Design", USA, Routledge, 2015, ISBN: 978-0765647603Centre for Emerging Markets SolutionsRead Description >Close >In this article, we isolate one component of product design- shape, specifically angularity or curvature (these terms will be used interchangeably throughout the article), and review literature from various domains on this aspect. In an original study, we investigate whether people have preferences for either angular or curved products for different categories for which shape is unrelated to functionality, and also measure perceived functional and hedonic benefits. We find that angular contours positively impact perceived functionality, with some exceptions, while curved contours positively impact perceived hedonic attributes of the product across almost all categories. The impact of angularity or curvature is moderated by individual differences such as need for cognition and involvement with the category. We integrate our findings within the extant literature and discuss implications for product design and provide directions for future research on design theory.
