Abstract
A study was conducted to analyze technology management practices of firms in the automobile industry in India. The case studies of three firms which collaborated in post Indian independence (i.e. after 1947) period and after the economic reforms began (i.e. after 1985) have been presented. The cases were prepared using interviewing and observation techniques. Profitability, liquidity, and turnover ratio analyses have been carried out to assess the firms’ financial health. Input from the questionnaire survey has been presented to compare the perception of the firm’s performance compared to industry on select variables. The situation–actor–process–learning–action–performance (SAP-LAP) paradigm was used to analyze the cases. Learning issues have been synthesized.
