Training Programme on Water Management
Focus: Water Treatment, Rain Water Harvesting and Zero Water Discharge
Tuesday, 11th August 2009, CII Conference Hall, Lucknow

Water is a critical resource for economic development and livelihood in India. With 4 % of the world water resources and 16 % of its population, India will be hard pressed to meet the water requirement of its various growing sectors like agriculture, industry, domestic and others.
Industry is the second major consumer of water (about 8%) second only to agriculture. About 40 billion cubic meters of water is currently consumed by industry annually. With increasing economic activity, the industrial water consumption is estimated to double in the next two decades.

Keeping this in view, sustained supply of water becomes a critical issue for the survival of industries especially water intensive industries. In this scenario, it is imperative that industry must adopt an integrated water resources management approach to remain competitive and ensure sustained availability of water.

Interactive Session with Banks & Financial Advisory Companies for MSMEs by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII)

Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) MSME Sub-Committee (WR) is organizing an Interactive Session with Banks & Financial Advisory Companies for MSMEs on 29 Jan 2010 at Hotel Orchid, near Domestic Airport, Mumbai.
The objective of the session is to discuss the new credit, banking and finance option available to the MSMEs and how these can be utilized to the best by the MSMEs, as a major problem faced by MSMEs is access to finance – importantly, timely finance in adequate quantity. By and large MSMEs are unable to raise the required finance in time and in the process lose business – there are also instances where businesses close down. They are either not able to present their case properly to the bankers, don’t possess the know-how to complete the intricate paperwork or in plain words lack the expertise to deal with banks and financial institutions.

On the other side, almost all the banks have an MSME focus, have products and schemes designed exclusively for the MSMEs, have adequate funds – but are unable to find right takers. In other words there is a big disconnect between lenders and prospective borrowers.

The presentations will be made by select bankers from Private, Public & Co-operative sectors and rating agencies.

The session will be followed by one-to-one sessions with select bankers and Financial Advisory Companies.

3-Day Workshop on Blue Ocean Strategy Through Design Thinking

3-Day Workshop on Blue Ocean Strategy Through Design Thinking
11-13 August 2009: 0930 Hrs: Hotel Raj Park, Chennai

Confederation of Indian Industry & Elephantversity Institute of Innovation are together organizing a three-day workshop, “Blue Ocean Strategy – through Design Thinking” by Dr. George Eapen & Mr. Partho Guha in Chennai on the 11th, 12th & 13th of August 2009.

The three day workshop features a mix of lectures, discussions, case analysis and activities where participants analyse their own businesses. Participants are encouraged to come with a specific opportunity that they would like to work on during the programme. An important part of the programme is the opportunity to immediately start applying blue ocean tools and frameworks to analyse and visually explore your own organisation’s strategic challenge. In addition, participants will gain valuable experience providing feedback and ideas to the others as they search for their blue ocean.

Blue Ocean Strategy is the simultaneous pursuit of differentiation and low-cost to create new market space. A proven and practical approach to creating breakthrough business ideas, blue ocean strategy seeks to make the competition irrelevant by creating a leap in value for both the company and its buyers. While innovation has been seen as a random / experimental process, blue ocean strategy offers systematic and repeatable methodologies and processes in pursuit of innovation by both new and existing firms. Design thinking is the latest and hottest methodology to help a company to innovate. Harvard Business Review, 2008 defines Design Thinking, as a methodology that imbues the full spectrum of innovation activities with a human-centred design ethos. Innovation is powered by a thorough understanding, through direct observation, of what people want and need in their lives and what they like or dislike about the way particular products are made, packaged, marketed, sold and supported.

These tools will prove to be instrumental in successfully emerging from the current global economic meltdown.

Conference on Infrastructure Management.

Conference on Infrastructure Management
“Delivering Value in Turbulent Business Environments”
Wednesday, 01 July 09 : Hotel Taj Mahal, New Delhi

The Infrastructure sector is a creator of opportunities and employment for a large segment of India’s population. This sector also has the potential to make a positive impact on a key global issue – climate change, since infrastructure such as buildings contribute significantly to global warming due to their high energy usage. However, the cost of ownership of such assets is increasing exponentially. Effective management of an organization’s assets therefore has the potential to bring in substantial benefits in these difficult economic times by enhancing the life and value of the assets as well as driving down costs. The turbulence in the business environment thus necessitates that organizations take a paradigm shift in the way Infrastructure Management services are being currently delivered.

The Government recently announced that India needs upwards of $ 500 billion for the infrastructure sector. Investment grade assets will need to be created and efficiently managed to attract this level of investment from external as well as domestic investors and give them a viable ROI. Integrated Infrastructure/Property Management services enable owners to deliver the highest levels of services to occupants/users as well as maintain the asset to global standards, thus making them attractive to investors.

The industry is gearing up to these economic challenges by enhancing professionalism in the engineering services that support infrastructure management, incorporating energy conservation designs, standardization, bench marking, multi-tasking and encouraging lean work environments that enhance long-term value. Infrastructure owners are taking strategic initiatives in upgrading the security of their assets with an aim to safeguard their investments.

Against this background, CII (Delhi State Council) along with C B Richard Ellis as the Knowledge Partner, is organizing a Conference on Infrastructure Management “Delivering Value in Turbulent Business Environments” scheduled from 1000 hrs (Registration: 0900 hrs) to 1800 hrs on Wednesday, 01 July 2009 at Hotel Taj Mahal, Man Singh Road, New Delhi

The conference would provide a platform for the practicing professionals as well as various stakeholders in the industry to share their experiences and thoughts on navigating through these turbulent times. Key objectives of the gathering would be to explore opportunities for cost effective utilization of resources as well as share industry best practices.
