The End of Competitive Advantage l Rita McGrath l Mumbai l 25 Feb 2014

Dear Colleague,
Are you at risk of being trapped in an uncompetitive business?
You could be at risk and not even know it. This happens fast with outdated approaches to strategy – what once worked well no longer fits today's accelerated reality. You can't outperform rivals if you compete the same way they do. To be king of the jungle, not copycat, you must spur subtantial new growth - quickly, profitably and safely. How? With deceptively simple moves.

Rita Gunther McGrath takes on the very concept of sustainable competitive advantage – once a necessary part of strategy, now increasingly obsolete and no longer a realistic goal for most firms. 

In this full day summit, Rita will;
  • teach specific frameworks for companies to manage transient competitive advantage quickly and profitably
  • give you an assessment for what it means for your career using a special tool!
  • address many of the concerns Indian companies face in terms of driving business growth and profitability
  • help companies come out of the quagmire they are stuck in.
