The program is intended for senior executives doing business in India across a wide range of industries. Participants may represent private or state-owned companies that are looking to expand internationally, multinational companies with operations in India, or global companies from any region seeking to enhance their business strategy for India and beyond. Participants may be either general or functional managers, but bearing significant responsibility for strategy development and strategic decision-making.

"The current environment of economic growth and intense competition among businesses is creating exciting new opportunities. Companies and multinational firms must be able to design innovative strategies and execute them effectively in order to achieve a distinctive identity. This program will improve the ability to capitalize on emerging industry trends, develop bold strategies and lead their implementation to drive organizational performance," said Professor Stephen P. Bradley - William Ziegler Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus and Faculty chair of Aligning and Executing Strategy-India."

"This highly interactive four-day curriculum will include faculty presentations, group exercises, and case studies drawn from India and around the world so that participants may gain practical understanding of the obstacles that companies face as they launch strategies for expanding market share within a country or internationally. Lessons drawn from the experience of leaders across a wide range of companies and industries will provide insight into why some strategies succeed while others fail. Exchanging ideas with faculty and other senior leaders will help in learning how to create a strong strategic foundation for success," said David J. Collis, Professor, Harvard Business School.
