Porter, introduced the concept of 'Creating Shared Value (CSV)' in HBR (2011), as an approach that takes into account social problems which intersect with businesses and makes it a major part of the core business strategy of a company. In the context of India the approach is much more relevant as it is still struggling with numerous social issues like poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, health etc. The academics feel that Indian businesses are still missing something in their view of long-term sustainabile business models. While speaking at 'Shared Value Summit 2015' in India, Prof. Kramer said, 'You cannot have a successful business in a failing society...for the CSV model to become a part of corporate hygiene anywhere needs major mindset change where we embrace a problem solving approach that goes beyond thinking what we can do in our company alone to also what we can do for society that we operate in.' He further explains that, 'CSV doesn't replace CSR and philanthropy, but can be in addition to them, such that businesses can find new opportunities for competitive advantage by beginning to think about these social issues as part of their overall corporate strategy.'

India's lack of existing infrastructure could be a blessing in disguise for 'Innovation' to happen, says an expert. The examples of this would be the telecom sector and now the hospitals. Since there is hardly any strong pre-existing foundation, the only choice is to innovate, create and build the latest in that particular industry. 'Reverse Innovation' is another thing that can be advantageous to India's economy. Indigenously developed innovative products and services can expand their reach into external markets, particularly in developed nations. Read on...
