  • Professor Karnani’s research interests are focused on the basic question in strategic management: Why do firms succeed? This involves understanding the structure of industries (the rules of the game) and the sources of sustainable competitive advantage (how to be a good player). He studies how firms can leverage existing competitive advantages and create new ones to achieve rapid growth. He is also interested in global competition, particularly in the context of emerging economies. He studies both how local companies can compete against large multinational firms, and how multinational firms can succeed in these unfamiliar markets. Another current research interest of Prof. Karnani is the role of the private sector in poverty reduction.
  • In addition to these University activities, Professor Karnani is actively involved in executive development programmes both in companies and through the University of Michigan. He consults with firms on strategic planning systems, and strategy analysis and formulation. Prof. Karnani served on the board of directors of A.M. Todd Group for several years. He has served a number of organisations as consultant or management educator, including GE, IBM, Singapore Airlines, Singapore Technologies, Temasek, Acer, Whirlpool, Masco, Total, Holcim, Neopost, Abbott Laboratories, Afrox Healthcare (South Africa), Volvo North America, Dow Corning, and Dow (Japan).
