Technical Session 1:
The first technical session was on Financing, Marketing and Capability Building to accelerate competitiveness. Dr Ajay Pandit, Former Professor, FMS, Delhi University, Dr Ganesh M Prabhu, Professor- Strategy , IIM Bangalore and Dr Deepak Tandon, Professor- Finance, IMI, New Delhi were the speakers of the session.
Dr Ajay Pandit talked about the increasing demands on marketing organizations that are leaving marketers and their firms vulnerable. Most marketers would endorse this assertion and then acknowledge their uncertainty about how to navigate this reality. The drivers for the widening marketing performance gap are increasing complexity, interacting with an accelerating rate of change in markets and serious organizational impediments to responding.
Dr Ganesh M Prabhu highlights that goal of most strategies is to build an enduring competitive advantage by establishing clever market positioning or assembling the right capabilities and competencies for making or delivering an offering. Companies undertake periodic strategy reviews and set direction and organizational structure on the basis of an analysis of their industry and some forecast of how it will evolve and develop competitiveness.
Dr. Deepak Tandon said in the marketplace, it’s not the strongest who win, but ones most responsive and adaptable to change. Today, for business leaders and CXOs, it is a constant struggle to adapt to a fast-changing business environment. It’s not just about making the right choices for themselves but for all their stakeholders – employees, business partners, clients, customers, policy makers, shareholders and investors.
The session was well coordinated by Prof Shikha Arora.

In modern theories of growth and development technological innovation has taken the centre stage. Our love for novelty and new gadgets is thus based on practical and theoretical foundations.
Dr V J Sebastian highlighted the growing interest in the relationship between technological innovation (and entrepreneurship) and the way it can promote global growth and development. Prof. C K Sabharwal said that Governments and development agencies are focusing on generating inclusive innovations, using policy instruments that induce the private sector—working on its own or in partnership with the public and non government sectors—to create and disseminate innovations that relevant for underserved market segment.
02nd April, 2016:
Technical Session 3:
The second day of the conference took off with deliberations on another exiting theme “Management Challenges to engage with New order stakeholders” with the prolific academicians like Dr Atanu Ghosh from SJMIMS, IIT Mumbai, Dr Srini R Srinivasan from Jamna Lal Bajaj Institute, Mumbai, Dr Shobha Kulshretha, Renowned consultant in International Business Area and Dr Deepak Singh, Director HR, KPMG.
The discussion and deliberations revolve around Stakeholder engagement as a cutting edge tool. Some companies like Starbucks, which is crowdsourcing new product ideas through its “My Starbucks Idea” social media platform, are showing leadership in identifying and holding discussions with diverse stakeholder groups. But just as many companies are struggling to build the basics of engagement and appropriately respond to increasing pressure. This is happening in part because stakeholder engagement is part of the CSR basics.
It has become such a norm that companies complete it to tick a box rather than endeavoring to understand what engagement specifically means to them. Managers charged with stakeholder engagement are also feeling pressure created by social media. More voices clamoring in more outlets for more attention is changing the reasons companies engage, how they engage, and with whom they engage.
The session was very well coordinated by Dr V N Bajpai.
