Retrospective

STRATEGYEDGE is one of the flagship events of the CII-Suresh Neotia Centre of Excellence for Leadership which features every year one of the world’s renowned thought leaders on Strategy, Innovation and Marketing sharing the latest insights from their respective domains with the Indian business community.

The first and secondeditions of STRATEGYEDGE were held at Kolkata and Bengaluru in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

Prof Vijay Govindarajan, Coxe Distinguished Professor at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business was the Keynote Speaker at both the editions. He is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading experts on strategy and innovation. In the latest Thinkers 50 Rankings, Prof. Govindarajan was ranked the #1 Indian Management Thinker.

The theme of the session was "Winning through Innovation: The Three Box Strategy".

In the masterclass sessions, Prof. Govindarajan focused on successfully creating the future even while managing excellence in the present. The Three-Box Solution describes the framework for managing a business’s responsibility to take action in three time horizons at once: executing the present core business at peak efficiency (Box 1); taking steps to avoid the inhibiting traps of past success (Box 2); and inventing a future built on nonlinear ideas (Box 3). The workshops showed the distinctive skills each box required how the boxes interrelate, and what it takes to balance them.

The two editions of the Masterclass was attended by over 500 delegates from all across the country.
