Abstract

Firms imitate each other to gain competitive edge or parity with rivals and the
imitative behaviour often change with respect to the competitive dynamics in which firm operate. This paper seeks to understand the imitation behaviour of domestic firms in developing countries operating in a competitive environment characterised with the presence of a dominant firm and in what situations such an imitation might lead to the development of innovation capabilities in imitating firms. The paper aims to utilise competitive dynamics and neo-institutional theories to understand the imitative behaviour of Indian automobile manufacturers.
