Consulting Continuum at SJMSOM, IIT Bombay Aims to Explore Current Trends and Challenges of Global Businesses
Theme: "Handling Market Optimism with Caution: A Consultant's Approach"
On March 20th, 2010

From the initial days of providing the outsider's perspective, a consultant is now viewed as a key cog in the organizational wheels and intrinsic to the company's strategy. Consulting Continuum explores myriad aspects across sectors, by initiating discussions on issues at the forefront of the consulting profession.

Each Consulting Continuum consists of a series of events centered on a particular theme. Eminent speakers from industry and students of management and engineering institutes converge for an entire day's event consisting of a lecture series followed by a panel discussion.

The one-day event will bring together a host of industry consultants in various areas, students from various B-schools and students from other disciplines at IIT Bombay. The interaction will help the students gain insights into the real world of consulting and understand the contribution of consultants.

The Consulting Continuum 2010 will be the first event in Continuum 2010 series. It will be organized on 20 March 2010 with a theme reflecting the current trends and challenges facing global businesses. The Consulting Continuum 2010 will see a series of lectures and panel discussions on the theme:"Handling Market Optimism with Caution: A Consultant's Approach".

The recent improvements in industrial figures have started pointing towards the beginning of the end of the most challenging times in recent memory. The mood is upbeat and the consulting firms have already started talking about green shoots of recovery - though cautiously. However, consultants are realizing that consultancy, as a profession, will not be the same as it used to be in early 2008. The last two years have challenged the best practices, methodologies and frameworks used by consultants to provide clients with solutions. New market realities have compelled the consulting companies to refocus their energies, re-align and re-think their solution strategies.

Consulting Continuum 2010 will bring together a host of industry experts in consulting domain who would provide insights into how consultants can adapt to new market realities and bring their clients back on their feet.
