A compilation of 27 papers written by eminent academicians and practitioners, Knowledge Economy: The Indian Challenge engages with the challenge of transforming the Indian economy to a knowledge economy. Thus, it looks at change management of the economy with a focus on: - Economic trends and critical activities contributing to the desired change - Educational issues for preparing the human resources - Structural issues for developing institutional frameworks - Societal issues for ultimately benefiting stakeholders. Individual chapters deal with issues like mapping the transition from industrial economy to knowledge economy, transformation from industrial age to information age, identification of new knowledge streams, creation of a network of knowledge institutions, and promoting the use of knowledge management for the larger good of the society. This work will be an invaluable resource for students and academicians working in the fields of economics and development studies, as well as policy makers, donor agencies, business associations and consultancy organizations.
