‘Where your talents and the needs of the world cross, there lies your purpose’.
Aristotle, Greek philosopher and scientist.
The internationalization of human resources, supply chains and technology management is driving the rise of institutes from Asia. The focus may shift from institutional growth to dynamism for technology-based focal institutes keen to contribute to industrial competitiveness. The role of strategic flexibility to enhance the contribution of institutes to competitiveness is an unexplored area. We study situations and trends in the growth of select leading institutes in India to explore patterns and problems. We attempt to structure the key problem factually to find root causes. While literature review is of limited help to detect any key patterns, interactions and observations indicate that flexibility in the ability to shift proportion of paths in the portfolio of an institute may enhance its vitality and competitiveness. The study contributes to the method of ‘problem structuring’ by proposing ‘actor-based root cause diagram’, and ambiguities to evolve sharper research questions. The study identifies several topics for further research to accelerate catch-up by institutions on quality and vitality.
