Executive Programme in Growth Strategies for Business Leaders (EPGSBL)

The heady opportunities available in a high growth economy amidst global technological disruption encourage business leaders to craft and execute business strategies for sustained growth. Growth, however, poses several challenges and successful management of growth strategies require careful crafting by managers. Rapid growth often introduces novel complexities in organizations. New forms and modes of coordination of work, processes and practices are needed to be designed and managed. This programme is aimed at addressing such concerns so that managers can make more deliberated choices around options of growth.

The inputs in this programme have been designed with a strategy eye, and a ‘general management’ focus. It will deal explicitly with issues of power, control and governance, including designing of such systems as to enable the realization of desired control. Managing and designing the internal systems and environment of the organization as well as designing inter-organizational cooperation and coordination arrangements will be major focus areas of the programme. Managing growth is not only an economic question of organizational financial performance, but extends far beyond into managing identities, aspirations, expectations of various stakeholders around an organization.

    "The EPGSBL programme inspired me to grow in many dimensions. The knowledge gained and the realistic case study based learning from this course enabled me to guide my clients on growth strategies in a way that is relevant to their business. This ultimately gave wonderful results to the client and IBM business as well. I won the 'We Deliver' contest in IBM (Best Project Award). The academic & research mindset practiced during the course resulted in my Research Paper on "Indian Public Distribution System using Blockchain" to get accepted & published in the prestigious 'Taylor & Francis Group' {"Information Technology for Development", (IF: 2.733, Q1 journal)}. I got appreciated both as 'IBM Recognized Speaker/Presenter' & 'IBM Recognized Teacher/Educator'  for my contributions towards numerous training, sessions, presentations, knowledge sharing, guiding and mentoring others. I received the coveted 'Champion of the Year' award from PMI India in 2020. My interview featured in 'Manage India' e-magazine in 2020. Last but not the least, the intuitive and innovative mindset gained during the course rewarded me with one of life's best achievements - My first patent. This wouldn't have been possible without the growth mindset and thinking out of the box environment that I experienced in the campus. Such an elite group of professors encourages one to think daring ideas. The programme has made a great difference in my life."
