Dr. Govindarajan will address the audience on ‘Three-Box Solution: Strategy for Leading Innovation”.

The Three-Box Solution describes the framework for managing a business’s responsibility to take action in three time horizons at once: executing the present core business at peak efficiency (Box 1); taking steps to avoid the inhibiting traps of past success (Box 2); and innovating a future built on nonlinear ideas (Box 3).

This Master Class presents the inter-relationship between the three boxes, the skills required to create each box and balancing between the three boxes and answer the critical question: How to successfully create the future even while managing excellence in the present?
