XLRI- Xavier School of Management recently organized the 5th “Dr Verghese Kurien Memorial Oration on Sustainable Development”. This year, Dr Jean Dreze, eminent development activist & economist delivered the oration on the topic “Economic Growth and Social Development” on 22nd September at XLRI Campus in Jamshedpur.

 

The event was also graced by Fr. E Abraham, S. J. Director of XLRI and Dr. Ashis K. Pani, Dean (Academics), XLRI and Dr. Madhukar Shukla, Chairperson, Fr. Arrupe Center for Ecology & Sustainability, XLRI.

 

In his address, Dr. Jean Dreze said, “Over four decades I have observed that India needs many more people’s scientists and people’s technicians like Dr. Kurien who take interest in everyday technology and people’s basic needs and not just sophisticated technology like biometrics and artificial intelligence. The consequence of this disinterest and lack of innovation in everyday technology is a remarkable stagnation of everyday technologies and correspondingly the existence of whole range of occupations that may be described as stagnant occupations because they are more or less the same functionality that used to be for many decades. The entire rural sector, for example in Jharkhand, is lost in that kind of stagnant occupation despite having so much local resources for example mushrooms, honey, tendu, mahua, etc. To improve people’s livelihood and well-being, without causing the sort of environmental destruction that we are witnessing today we need many more Dr. Kuriens”.

XLRI- Xavier School of Management collaborates with Institute for Advanced Studies in Complex Choices to host the ‘IASCC Leadership Conclave – Choices in a Growth-Constrained, Information-Age Economy’ on August 10th – 11th, 2018 at JW Marriott, Juhu in Mumbai.

The Leadership Conclave aims to be a platform for dialogue between research and practice. It would focus on building a shared perspective on issue of current interest and outline the agenda for future research in the area.

Prof. Anil K Sood, founder IASCC, mentioned, “The Conclave is the first step in realizing our vision of advancing the science and practice of making choices for both individuals and organisations. We plan to invest in building an eco-system of organisations and professions who share our purpose.”

The Conclave will focus on identifying the underlying causes that are limiting the short- as well as long-term growth potential. Growth is a function of investment by individuals, organisations and the government. It is these investment choices that determine earnings and consequently the consumption and investment levels in an economy. Credit can’t solve the problem of growth. It can accelerate growth for some time and is not a substitute for earnings. In the long-run, individual earnings must go up to sustain growth. IASCC will present initial findings of their research at the Conclave.

Elaborating about the Conclave, Prof. P. Venugopal, XLRI said, “The purpose of the Conclave is to build a shared perspective on choice of strategy in a Growth-Constrained Information-Age Economy and outline the agenda for future research on choice of growth strategy. XLRI has collaborated with IASCC Leadership Conclave as the Knowledge Partner.” Read more

What do the iPhone and Dettol have in common? You may scratch your head, but the answer is rather straightforward.

In a world with shrinking attention spans and an ever-widening array of competitors and substitutes for every good and service, it is crucial for corporates to understand the nuances of consumer behaviour and capitalize on them to ensure the success of their offerings.
