Abstract

Industrial and Commercial Training High-Performance Teams and Job Involvement: Exploring the Linkage to Augment Quality in Indian Education and Research Abstract Purpose: Indian higher education is arguably ‘in the doldrums’. Conformity to minimum standards and requirements combined with ever-eroding quality is the serious threats. Many researchers have suggested adopting a functional approach in universities and developing greater autonomy and accountability to improve the situation. The present paper deliberates on the introduction of an integrated way of making teachers more involved in their profession with the intention of enhancing the quality of education and research. Design/methodology/approach: The paper’s argument conceptualizes the possibilities of Indian higher education system benchmarking the concept of high-performance teams as practiced in the industry. Findings: Taking the support from the extant literature, it is proposed that working in high-performance teams have the potential to elevate the involvement level of the faculty. Furthermore, it is suggested that through the implementation of high-performance teams in educational settings, teachers would also be able to develop their competencies in relation to research activities. Originality/value: The model presented in the study has the potential to be empirically tested for its validity and reliability, which opens vistas for future research. Keywords: Benchmarking, Higher Education, Job Involvement Level, High-Performance Teams, Quality Article Classification: Conceptual Paper
