What happens when 64 Captains and Colonels of Indian Armed Forces get together? And what happens when the battleground shifts from the country borders to India's top business school, the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad?

Well, just like in a warzone, they strategise, only that this is meant for very different enemies.

The 2014 batch of Armed Forces Programme at IIM-A recently organised a Convergence conclave on ‘Nation Building through Ethics and Enterprise’, where speakers from Government and industry shared their perspectives on the theme.

The one-day event had two panel discussions, with first session on ‘Bridging the gap through technology and innovation’. The second panel discussion was on ‘ethics in governance’.

The discussions covered a wide canvas, including empowerment through technology and innovation, self-reliance, indigenisation and institutional reforms to improve transparency in corporate governance and nation-building through public-private partnerships.

The Armed Forces Programme is a six-month, fully residential certificate programme in business management created with an objective of imparting knowledge and key skills to selected officers from the Defence services to bring them on par with global management practices.
