Abstract

The paper presents a framework for achieving a sustainable corporate growth strategy for the Indian telecom sector. One sector in India where there is huge potential for sustainable growth is the telecom sector. Generally a monopoly, the sector is technologically intensive and is characterised by decreasing costs of operation with increasing scale and scope economies. Strategies for sustainable growth should be rooted on sensible strategic analysis based on the firms' distinctive capabilities and competencies. Based on this analysis, the appropriate implementation sequence has to be identified. The success and failure of the sequence of initiatives should provide valuable learning which acts as the most important ingredient in the organisational building activities. This learning is also essential in pointing out the errors made in strategic analysis as well as identification of core capabilities.
