Abstract: Public sector organisations in India were established after the independence to build infrastructure for economic development, generate employment and various other reasons. Since the liberalisation of the economy in 1991, the mortality rate of public sector units (PSUs) has been found to be on the rise. This dynamics has been captured using soft systems methodology. A system dynamics model representing the operational and performance dynamics of Indian PSUs in the era of transformation from the pre-globalisation through globalisation and post-globalisation periods was developed. Policy experimentation reveals that chief executive officers with strategic orientation towards research and development improve revenue generations. Furthermore, it revealed that Indian PSUs would have earned more revenues had there not been globalisation.
