The world today is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous. The end of Cold War had led to a major imbalance in power dynamics; The Arab Revolution saw Autocratic Regimes crumple to the ground through campaigns on social media, and the COVID-19 virus has forced humans across the world to stay six feet apart. VUCA also finds its presence in the Business World, as large organizations are grappling with disruptive changes in technology, consumer expectations, competitor dynamics, and geopolitical situations.
In response to the dynamic environment and to learn more about the strategies of organisations in the current scenario, International Management Institute (IMI) New Delhi is set to host the 9th edition of its Annual Management Conclave, Conventus’20 on 18th, 19th, and 20th September 2020. Conventus is built with the idea to deliberate on business relevant topics that grip the world, and the three-day conclave is structured around the theme, ‘Survival and Growth in the VUCA world: Adaptability, Agility & Sustainability’.
Taking the legacy ahead with the idea of innovation across industries, Conventus’20 will witness the participation of 50+ industry stalwarts and practitioners as speakers from the domain of HR, Analytics, Economics, Finance, Marketing, Strategy, Operations, CSR, Entrepreneurship, and Hospitality.
To grace the occasion, Mr. Sudhir Sethi, MD and CEO, Chiratae ventures, is invited as the Chief Guest of the Inauguration Ceremony.
COVID-19 has pushed the world to unprecedented times, with businesses changing their policies overnight and managers adapting to new job roles. To create order out of this chaos, industry stalwarts will discuss the way to survival and growth in a VUCA World, in the 10 summits of the conclave. Every summit carries its own sub-theme to cover all insights on how the current trends will impact various aspects of the VUCA industry.
