Businesses today are operating in an increasingly complex and competitive global environment. Today’s leaders are expected to rise above their roles and tackle challenges head-on, achieve profitability, make consensus, rally their team towards excellence, stay ahead of the trends in their industry, and embrace uncertainty. The new kind of leadership is about balancing profits with purpose.

The ISB-Kellogg Global Advanced Management Programme (GAMP) has been specifically designed and tailored to the unique needs of senior management. Bringing together two world-class business schools from two dynamic nations – the USA, a post-industrial economy, and India, a rapidly emerging superpower – gives global leaders a stimulating learning experience like no other.

In a volatile business landscape, leaders need to be ready with dynamic strategies to not only cope with but also capitalise on the opportunities presented by unpredictable scenarios. The top management of large global businesses need to equip themselves and their organisations with cutting-edge tools, competencies, and frameworks that deliver transformative results. As the face of the organisation, global leaders are responsible for elevating its brand equity, attracting investments and deals that deliver exponential value to all its stakeholders.

Phase I of the programme at Indian School of Business aims to prepare senior executives to shoulder comprehensive responsibilities of being a strategist, technologist, communicator, thinker, doer, all at once.

Customer-centricity, data analytics, driven by digital disruption is the driving force in how organisations do business, develop solutions, and will move towards a ‘Bold Future’. This ‘Bold Future’ will need bold leadership driven by industry experts, skilled in creating innovative solutions and able to assist their organisations in driving and sustaining change. Human ingenuity along with data-driven decisions will result in breakthrough business outcomes. However, simply following a skills-based approach will not be enough; the next era leader will need to be a deeply human and a highly strategic leader, who knows how to collaborate and influence in order to drive results.

Phase II of the programme at Kellogg School of Management aims to complement phase I to guide senior executives on their path to becoming ‘Bold & Intelligent Leaders’.

The programme examines challenges at the edges of business operations that give rise to novel management solutions and business model innovations. Designed to bring together a diverse set of senior corporate leaders, the programme delivers a multitude of contrasting peer perspectives from across industries that enrich the learning experience by giving rise to unpredictable, interesting interactions.

Phase 2: Kellogg School of Management

Leading the Data Culture

This session focuses on the question, “How does an organisation put data analytics and AI into actual practice to produce business value?” The foundation for doing so is building a data culture. The session explains what a data culture is. Then, we address the three

key imperatives for using data and analytics to produce better business outcomes in a data culture: expecting, enabling, and encouraging. We focus particularly on the challenges of doing so in an established organisation.

Finally, we explain each of the five different approaches that companies typically take to putting data analytics into practice. We discuss those that typically fail, and those that work partially, and then focus on the best practice approach, with examples of the best practices.

ISB faculty includes leading academics with credentials and teaching experience from top global business schools as well as accomplished practitioners who have managed large enterprises.
