From the Editor's Desk...

As our world steers clear of the losses from the pandemic, we chart our path towards the next normal. These interventions will require clear and fact-based analyses of existing strategies and a strong focus on developing initiatives and roadmaps tailored towards sustainably improving capabilities, enhancing performances, building collaborative ecosystems, and eventually, magnifying impact. To transform meaningfully and at scale, organisations will need to go deeper into their vision, delve above and beyond the surface of their mission statement, and shatter all perceptions about change. Telescopic vision, microscopic implementation, if you will. 

In this issue, we revisit ‘transformation’, not as an objective of change management, or the agenda of a boardroom huddle, but as a real and measurable aspect of growth, for individuals and businesses alike. 

Here’s our line-up, exploring the limitless opportunities of transformation (with a capital ‘T’):

  • Digitising trust has played a crucial role in the growth of the sharing economy. Can this trust-based, peer-to-peer marketplace shape the future of business
  • How can organisations harness the power of their ecosystems? Learn how the factors of space, time, and action can help firms adapt business strategies in real time. 
  • Despite tasting success with AI, firms are compelled to reconsider its viability due to ethical issues. Know how organisations can leverage the benefits of responsible AI

Sports and Sportsmanship: Lessons for All Pitches

Sports is the best reality show ever, teaching us lessons that go beyond the classroom. Viren Rasquinha, Olympic Gold Quest, tells us what these are.

The idea of ISB Management ReThink was born out of the impending need to revisit and redefine the time-tested tenets of management, and at the same time, identify how they can still hold on to their relevance in contemporary times. With the ever-changing dynamics of management philosophies, and the associated classroom teaching methodology, it is about time to readjust the focus by shaking the fundamentals, breaking myths and bringing about the change necessary to survive in this cut-throat era of stiff competition.
