Research Focus (Current)


Research on social issues needs to be carried out as extended programs owing to the presence of large sets of multiple stakeholders and the complexity involved in bringing about change for good. Changes in social systems primarily call for articulating issues in seeking response from all and therefore can only be improved with incremental changes in the methods in the larger system. (Issues like; Menace of stray dogs and garbage accumulation in Bengaluru city have continued to remain as stubborn issues, for years now). On complex issues the research is often limited to merely evolving innovative programs to create proper awareness among the stakeholders.

Therefore research is carried out as a prolonged process using proprietary research tools; such as; Think Paradigm and Innovation Scratch Book and progresses with structured documents and programs. Similarly in influencing government policies Articles and Research Papers are presented in this site and other associate media.

Research Faculty


Government–university connect on active management issues seems to be awfully deficient (in fact absent) and a lot worse than the deficient corporate-university connect in spite of the tremendous scope that exists, far more with the government-university connect, for mutual benefits of problem solving and learning from that.

Swalpa Nodi would deliberately take research programs on civic and social issues to chosen management / higher education institutes for benefiting from the opinions of young minds as also to provide the students with the opportunity to work with active research programs. Such extended campus research programs are conducted in partnership with the institute and with the active participation of the connected faculty members.

(Note: Management Institutes / Engineering Collages and other higher education institutes may mail to; to explore feasibility.)
