On Hrgyan the following on LSIP:

LSIP, or Large Scale Interactive Process, is an exercise that groups employees for brainstorming and then formulates action plans to address people-related issues that impact businesses. It is considered by many to be a necessary exercise to create a performance-driven and competitive workforce. This intervention, like many others, involves mix-and-match table groups of eight-to-ten people and usually lasts three days. LSIP first appeared in 1974 in the Annual Review of Psychology, but became a preferred organisational development tool only in the 90s. A relatively new concept in India Inc., I have heard that LSIP is a popular HR tool with companies like
Maruti Udyog Limited, Brittannia Industries, GE India, and Alstom India.
