Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Rohtak's Management Summit or ManSum is an annual event and the theme for this edition's event was 'Paradox of Innovation' focused on how to exploit existing product innovation competencies for a better tomorrow. The summit was attended by dignitaries from various industry sectors as well as the media.
While talking in the event, Mr. Venkatesh Sarvasiddhi, Head-Academic Initiatives & Microsoft Innovation Center said that the "Innovation is not just about launching new products, Microsoft believes it's about making technology easier for everyone."
"Microsoft annually invests $ 8.5 billion in R&D and that is not our only objective. It's about putting the money in right place through which we can bring the change," added Mr. Sarvasiddhi.
"Earlier we used to print lengthy articles of about 1500 words. But with the advent of technology, youngsters are keener on reading 'bytes' of news. The emergence of Twitter, Facebook and news apps has led to the media houses tapping to these newer avenues," said Mr. Rasul Bailay, Senior Assistant Editor, The Economic Times while speaking on the impact of innovations on the print media.
"The era of cost optimization has arrived and the banking sector also needs to continuously revive themselves", said Ms. Rashmi Jahagirdar, Director Technology, Global Head of QA Strategy and Management, Deutsche Bank.
"We can't analyse art, it is an expression and in today's generation, analysis of shows is done using the reach on internet," said Mr. Adarsh Thottetodi, Creative Director, NDTV.
"People are always in search of something new and hence the focus of media has now shifted to shows with independent artists. NDTV is creating platforms for such artists," Mr. Thottetodi added.
The summit was also attended by Mr. Rajiv Soni, Senior Director, Information services, Stryker , Mr. Dhruv Luthra, Head Infra and Textiles, Luthra Group, Mrs Praveen Chauhan, Head HR, Agarwal Packers & Movers Ltd and Mr. Sunil Omanwar, Head Learning & Organisation Development, Fortis Healthcare.
