The Global Business Consortium is launched. Designed and directed by Professor Lynda Gratton, it brings together top executives from six companies – ABB, BT, LG, Lufthansa, SKF and Standard Chartered Bank – to share their knowledge of different sectors. The first programme visits India, Southeast Asia and Europe and is led by Gratton and Professor Sumantra Ghoshal.
“The executives have completed senior management courses. They are familiar with the latest management theories. They have heard the gurus. For them, the best way forward is to learn from their peers,” says Gratton.
Meanwhile a new programme for global marketing directors is launched in collaboration with the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University, called the International Marketing Leadership Forum.
