Frost & Sullivan also to Discuss - Social Innovation "Need of the Hour to Bridge the Increasing Economic Divide"

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Monday, August 29, 2011 -- (Business Wire India) -- Global business is at a fascinating crossroads today, uncertainties of the known is delicately balanced by the promise of the emerging. India, a key constituent of the global business ecosystem, finds itself playing a pivotal role in maintaining this equilibrium. Indian business leaders also face the onus of identifying and securing long-term growth in this dynamic environment. Their choices in turn driven by an appreciation of a multitude of variables: how to innovate to succeed has been pivotal. At its 2011 Global Community of Growth, Innovation and Leadership, Frost & Sullivan will discuss CEOs perspective on growth and at the same time host the Leadership Panel, which will focus on Growth 2.0. This panel answers the million-dollar question, "Is the growth that was achieved in the last 10 years sustainable for the next 10?" Better still - "can they plan for even higher levels of growth, given the enormous potential of the domestic markets that have been hitherto untapped?"

Frost & Sullivan's Global Community of Growth, Innovation and Leadership conference this year will take place for two consecutive days on September 27th - 28th, 2011 at Grand Hyatt (Santa Cruz-East), Mumbai. "We will examine the dynamics of growth and various tools and processes companies can use to grow their business," says David Frigstad, Chairman, Frost & Sullivan, who will deliver the keynote address at the event. "We will develop relationships and participate in discussions focused on rethinking and strengthening companies' growth strategies. We will uncover new opportunities for growth through identifying unmet needs and the innovations required to respond to a changing world."

According to Anand Rangachary, Managing Director - South Asia, Middle East and North Africa, Frost & Sullivan, "The three most critical success factors for any corporate to look beyond the current economic and industry constraints and focus on sustainability are growth, innovation and leadership."

On the challenges in India, Anand said, "One of the core focus of the Congress is 'innovation'. While each sector has unique challenges toward pursuing innovation as a key growth strategy, some generic challenges that the congress will deliberate on include mindset shift for organisations, government/regulatory support, partnership with academia, human capital management and product development focused on domestic markets. The focus on 'growth' would be equally significant. With having a global perspective no longer being a luxury - but a necessity for organizations, how should small and medium size enterprises deal with a relentlessly globalizing external environment and how can they learn from the best practices of their larger counterparts who have success stories to share, is what this Congress will endeavour to achieve."

The CEOs Perspective on Growth will showcase Frost & Sullivan's knowledge on six specific fronts that drive Growth, Innovation and Leadership otherwise referred to as "The Six Platforms of Growth, Innovation and Leadership." This will empower companies to develop a greater visionary perspective on their industry, create more innovative growth strategies and implement them at best practice levels. Additional discussions in uncovering growth opportunities will include a focus on the top 10 global Mega Trends and their impact on business, cultures and society.
