This study focused on 32 top managers in leading hi-tech, knowledge-based organizations in Bangalore, drawn both from corporate as well as academic world. The purpose of this study was to investigate how the CEO’s and Directors of these “knowledge citadels” look at productivity and innovation, in the years and decades to follow. The study was conducted by personally interviewing these corporate heads, seeking their expert opinions and solutions for coping with turbulences and complexities in the knowledge economy.

This paper presents the major findings of this survey study, concentrating on managerial implications at both the management level, as well as the organizing level. For instance, we have argued that creating the innovation-led organization may represent a viable solution for coping with the turbulence and complexity of the knowledge economy
