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 MonographsSubramanian, Krishnamurthy., Acharya, Viral. "Dismissal Laws and Innovation", Hyderabad, India, Book Edited by Asian Development Bank Institute, ForthcomingRead Description >Close >I theoretically and empirically show that dismissal laws -- laws that impose hurdles on firing of employees -- spur innovation and thereby economic growth. Theoretically, dismissal laws make it costly for firms to arbitrarily discharge employees. This enables firms to commit to not punish short-run failures of employees. Because innovation is inherently risky and employment contracts are incomplete, dismissal laws enable such commitment. Specifically, absent such laws, firms cannot contractually commit so ex-ante. The commitment provided by dismissal laws encourages employees to exert greater effort in risky, but path-breaking, projects thereby fostering firm-level innovation. I provide empirical evidence supporting this thesis using the discontinuity provided by the passage of the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. Using the fact that this Act only applied to firms with 100 or more employees, I undertake difference-in-difference and regression discontinuity tests to provide this evidence. Building on endogenous growth theory, which posits that economic growth stems from innovation, I also show that dismissal laws correlate positively with economic growth. However, other forms of labor laws correlate negatively with economic growth and swamp the positive effect of dismissal laws.

Books and MonographsRamachandran, Kavil., Bhatnagar, Navneet.,Joshi, Shefali. "Emerging Paradigms of Corporate Governance and Managerial Professionalization in Family Firms", 2016Thomas Schmidheiny Centre for Family EnterpriseRead Description >Close >Most businesses, particularly in Asia, are family controlled and managed, contributing immensely to the development of the economies. A majority of family firms start with small to mid-sized business operations. During the early stages of the firm's life cycle, managerial functions are mostly performed by members of the controlling family (Dyer & Handler, 1994). Research shows that family firms benefit due to involvement of family members, as they bring unique capabilities and resources - termed 'familiness' (Habbershon & Williams, 1999), that contribute to the firm's competitive advantage (Aronoff & Ward, 1995;Sirmon & Hitt, 2003). However, as the firm grows overtime, business operations become increasingly complex and specialized. Systems and processes are required to be established for effective management of a growing business (Chandler, 1990; Casson, 2000; Walsh, 2010). Formulation of a clear strategy, grooming of a professionalized organization and having leadership that practices high quality governance are important mechanisms to preserve family businesses. However, most family businesses do not survive beyond three or four generations, due to their lack of understanding and capabilities to manage challenges which are unique to family businesses. Besides their uniqueness arising out of the overlap of conflicting priorities of the key stakeholders in terms of ownership, management and family responsibilities, family businesses are also on a discovery driven journey on the organization life cycle. The complex situation created by the interplay of multiple forces makes both professionalization and corporate governance quite challenging. This chapter discusses the difficulties of developing and managing corporate governance and professionalization in family controlled businesses.
