The increasing ubiquity of technology, urbanization, politics, regulation is becoming disruption drivers in our journey towards the ‘Next Normal’. Businesses are building their competitive advantages with resilience and sustainability as mission drivers. Cultural disruptions in business practices are putting people, community, and environmental returns as mainstream boardroom discussions.

In this existing churn of innovation and re-invention, this year’s theme of ‘Decoding Disruption - Forward Fast’ provides the perfect backdrop to learn from the stories and experiences of trailblazing leaders, organisations, and communities to prepare for the ‘Next Normal’ and drive lifelong learning for the community.

About ISB

Indian School of Business (ISB) evolved from the need for a world-class business school in Asia. The founders, some of the best minds from the corporate and academic worlds, anticipated the leadership needs of the emerging Asian economies. They recognised that the rapidly changing business landscape would require young leaders who not only understand the developing economies but who also present a global perspective. ISB is committed to creating such leaders through its innovative programmes, outstanding faculty and thought leadership.
