To bridge the gap between industry and academia, the Andhra Pradesh Government has constituted a committee for the IT industry, said Ponnala Lakshmaiah, Minister for Information, technology & Communications.

Speaking at the HR Conclave 2013, a two-day event organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), he said the committee, comprising representatives from IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, TCS and Infosys, was undertaking an exercise to make changes in educational curriculum to suit the industry.

The theme of the conference was ‘Human capital transformation—leading the organisations of tomorrow through cutting edge people practises’. Talking about human capital transformation, the IT Minister reiterated the importance of reinventing ourselves constantly, recognising our competencies and excelling in what we do.

In a special plenary address, Devdutt Pattanaik, Chief Belief Officer, Future Group, talked about the inter-linkages between belief, behaviour and business.

“Belief systems are constantly changing and the organizations must adopt measures to retain creative approaches of its human resources. In fact, belief shapes behaviour and strengthens performance in businesses,” he said.
