Harvard Business School is to host an executive education programme ‘Managing and Transforming Professional Service Firms-India’ from January 15-18  at Taj Lands’ End, Mumbai.

The leadership development programme is designed to facilitate participants to capture the emerging opportunities in the current economic environment.

Participants will gain the latest strategies for capitalising on the new opportunities during uncertain times, implementing models for scaling successful services, responding to market shifts with innovative services, and managing both domestic and global growth.

Thomas J. DeLong, the Philip J Stomberg Professor of Management Practice in the Organisational Behaviour and faculty chair, said the programme is to facilitate participants to disrupt the old patterns.

“Across the globe, organisations are trying to figure out ways to differentiate themselves. We hope to help participants differentiate their organisations, not only financially but also on the human capital front.’’

Ashish Nanda, Director of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, and Executive Education Fellow at the Harvard Business School, said the programme is appropriate for operational heads from established firms within or outside India.
