Abstract:

HP's i-community project at Kuppam in AP, was one of the company's e-inclusion initiatives. These initiatives were taken up in order to bridge the digital divide by providing access to information and communication technology (ICT) to an increasing number of people across the globe. The Kuppam i-community project aimed to make Kuppam a self-sustaining economy through the creation of appropriate technology innovations for the local community. HP tried to carry what it learnt in Kuppam to other parts of India and outside India. The case details the planning that HP undertook to execute the project. The case also indicates the role of partnerships in the success of the Kuppam i-community project. The case ends with an assessment of how HP was able to generate stakeholder value through its engagement at Kuppam.

Advantages of bringing in a systems perspective as compared to a reductionistic perspective in business operations
Creating CSR initiatives based on understanding the needs of the target population, rather than offering an initiative based on what a company can offer
How a company replicates its learning from one region to other regions
