He started his FDP with a case study which was given to the faculty a day earlier with a view that faculty will go through the case and will present their case analysis in the FDP. The case study was about LSI Logic Corp and its growth over a period of time.
All the management faculty both from UG and PG department participated in the discussion. The case analysis and discussion was held from a very diverse view, almost incorporating all the management function.
Dr. Mishra very well demonstrated that how a case needs to be analysed in the class room atmosphere so that actual learning takes place. After concluding the case study analysis he shared his experience and methods that he adopts for teaching IIM students.
He advised faculty members to use plenty of small cases, news paper articles and news items in the class room to increase student’s participation and involvement. He was of the opinion that learning will not take place unless the class is interactive. He shared some of the tips with faculty to make classroom learning effective. He also shared his experience and knowledge about how to write good research papers. Session ended with vote of thanks.
Session was graced with the benign presence of Dr. A K Puri (DG) and Dr. Vidya Sekhri (Director – UG).

“A FDP was organised on 29th June, Thursday at I.T.S, Ghaziabad campus. The topic of the FDP was - Principles of 'Sustainable Competitive Advantage'. The main speaker of the session was Dr. Vijesh Jain, Professor, I.T.S, Ghaziabad. The FDP covered several topics of current interest in strategic management, marketing and governance based on the theme of the topic. The changing role of the business in society in the current context was deliberated and discussed among the participating faculty members who asked several questions to the speaker and which were duly debated. The session was highly interactive and intense in nature. The participant reported that the discussion was very useful for bringing about change in the direction of management concepts being taught in the class and will help update the concepts with the changing business and geopolitical environment across the world.
The FDP covered several new theories propounded by Sir Michael Porter including the theory of Scale, theory of shared value, theory of advantage by cluster approach and other ideas. These ideas are in line with the current changes taking place in businesses. It was argued by the speaker that the perception of entrepreneur about what their business does in the society and perception about the society what a business does are converging for good and so are the goals of the businesses and the governments. It was further argued that government partnership with businesses is must in the current context for the benefit of the business as well as the society. It was also discussed that governments and NGOs have limited resources to carry out welfare job effectively. This gap can be filled by the role of businesses as societal problem solver rather than societal problems creator.
