Corporate Talk Session by Mr. Lakshman Kanuga, President, BOTIL Oil Tools India Pvt. Ltd and Strategic Advisor- IPN Holding BV, The Netherlands for PGDM students

Mr. Lakshman Kanuga explained that the average lifespan of a company on the S&P 500 has fallen from more than 60 years to less than 20.  The power of technology will increase as much in the next 18 months as it has in the last 30 years.  Clearly, technology cycles have begun to outpace planning cycles.

He described that disruptive innovation is nothing new but two critical factors are new these days: the speed at which disruption is happening and the way in which companies are preparing for and managing it.

Mr. Kanuga emphasized that It’s not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change. Strategy also needs to take a different approach, where “plan and execute” is replaced by execute, evaluate and revise.

He said that organizations can improve their agility by enterprise and encourage  people to work a varied geographical and functional positions for contributing in better informational connectivity. Not including information that is available about your customers, and business environment is inexcusable.

He suggested observing, remembering, creating, predicting, and mobilizing, fundamental elements of collective intelligence. We need a new profession to combine human and machine intelligence to solve big problems.

At the end of the corporate lecture, a special vote of thanks was given to him.
