Alternative Organisations in India : Undoing Boundaries, Hardback Book


This book studies accounts of alternative organisations in India and provides critical insights on if and why alternative organisations matter to management theory and practice, how management theory can be applied to the context of alternative organisations, and how, from an alternate organisational perspective, existing debates in management can be enriched.

Some other questions examined in this book are: what are spaces of organising outside corporations?

How do these alternative organisational forms challenge our assumptions about a globalised, monolithic capitalist order?

How do we understand the organisational lives of those marginalised, silenced and oppressed?

How can we imagine an alternative organisational reality?

It includes cases from different parts of India that explore the functioning of a Special Investigation Team constituted by the Supreme Court of India, Mritshilpis (idol-makers), homeless shelters, panchayats, Shahid Hospital, Budhan Theater, Swaraj University, and organisations that promote social inclusivity.
