ABOUT US

Today, we generate more data in a year than what was generated since the inception of mankind. We talk about a world of interconnected “things”, of an ever evolving technology; evolving at a rate faster than ever before. How then, can management, in this era of unprecedentedly rapid change be slow?

Integrated supply chains, big data, the online marketplace and cloud would be just the top of mind recalls for anyone thinking of the correlation between ever evolving technology and management innovation. As the pace of technological innovation picks up, so does that of management innovation. Add to this the concept of a globalization and things get even trickier. You don’t just have to keep up with the change in technology, but have to adapt to the socio political and economic dynamics of not just your immediate milieu but of the entire globe. Concepts like reverse innovation where the developed nations are adopting and learning from innovation in hitherto considered underdeveloped nations go on to corroborate the existence of this setup.

In an era where the only scope for survival is innovation, one has no option but to be innovative. Innovation in Management is all about discovering new and unprecedented ways to Organize, Lead, Coordinate and Motivate people. Innovation in Management Principles and Processes can help the organizations to shift the paradigm, but the challenge doesn’t end here. You could come up with a breakthrough today but there is no guarantee it would be relevant tomorrow. There are endless incidents of innovation being brought in by someone and mastered by someone else. It no more suffices to be intelligent. The intelligence has to ‘adaptive’. Improvisation helps an organization to quickly adapt its short term and long term objectives to changing and uncertain business conditions. Improvisation is all about being not just good in traditional skills of management but also continuously adding to them in accordance to winds of change.

But improvisation is not the end either. Best management today does not simply end at cooking up the best dish for the right connoisseur. Consulting no more ends at suggestions. One is expected to implement those as well! Don’t just cook the dish, serve it right! The same concept; ‘Innovate, Improvise, Implement’ is at the heart of Avenues 15, the Business Festival of SJMSOM, IIT Bombay. Do you have it in you to conceptualize breakthroughs? Do you have the spontaneity to adapt your ideas to a dynamic context? Do you have the zeal of making it happen?

SJMSOM, IIT Bombay invites all the budding managers and professionals who answer the above questions in affirmative.

AVENUES’ is the International Business festival of IIT Bombay organized by Shailesh J. Mehta School of Management, IIT Bombay. It consists of a potpourri of management events targeted at the budding managers and combines learning with fun. Management students across the globe participate in this extravaganza to outdo and outlast the competition. All the events are keenly contested and judged by the best known people from the industry and academia. Avenues has opened its gates for International business schools as well as corporates for the first time this year.

Alankar - The Global Leadership Summit, presents an opportunity to understand the persistent efforts put in and tribulations endured by eminent leaders who pursued their ambitions to reality.

India is moving towards a knowledge-based economy. We at IIT believe that much of economic growth that would take place in the coming years in India has to be through efficient management of ventures which are in their growth phase. The management of organization in this phase involves dealing with technological changes at the micro as well as at the macro level.

Thus, managers with a strong background in technology are best placed to lead India onto a higher growth path.

IIT Bombay, founded in 1958, has established itself as a premier world class teaching and research institution in technology and interdisciplinary programmes. About twenty percent of its alumni are entrepreneurs- many of them first generation. The pre-eminence of the Institute is evident from its varied and effective academic programmes for manpower development to meet the rapidly changing needs of the Organizations.

To promote interdisciplinary learning and to keep up with the changing environment, IIT Bombay established its management school in 1995 with the objective of transforming professionals with technological background to “Renaissance Leaders” of tomorrow. In the year 2000, the school was renamed as Shailesh J Mehta School of Management, in honor of Dr. Shailesh J. Mehta, a distinguished alumnus of IIT Bombay and a generous contributor to the school. The School Of Management already leads the way in preparing its Graduates to respond to the new challenges by drawing on the varied intellectual resources of IIT Bombay and providing an outstanding and innovative program in management education.

IIT Bombay, set up by an Act of Parliament, was established in 1958, at Powai, a northern suburb of Mumbai. Today the Institute is recognized as one of the centers of academic excellence in the country. Over the years, there has been dynamic progress at IIT Bombay in all academic and research activities, and a parallel improvement in facilities and infrastructure, to keep it on par with the best institutions in the world. Institutes in positions of excellence grow with time. The ideas and ideals on which such institutes are built evolve and change with national aspirations, national perspectives, and trends world – wide. IIT Bombay, too, is one such institution.

Motto of IIT Bombay
The motto of IIT Bombay – “Gnayanam Paramam Dheyam”, or “Knowledge is the Supreme Goal”, is reflected in the Vision and Mission of IIT.

Vision and Mission of IIT Bombay
Vision : To be the fountainhead of new ideas and of innovators in technology and science

Futsal - A brief introduction

Futsal is a format of five-a-side football that is played extensively throughout the world. The term ‘Futsal’ is an abbreviation of the Portuguese ‘futebol de salão’ or the Spanish ‘futbol sala’, both of which translated literally mean ‘indoor football’. It is played on a pitch approximately the size of a basketball or netball court.

The ball forces a player to use their skill rather than the ball’s bounce to propel it. As a small sided game, players are constantly placed in situations where they must receive or play whilst under pressure or in confined spaces.

Playing Futsal allows you to touch the ball nearly twelve times more than playing football. The game places considerable demand on technique, movement, tactical awareness and fitness. Futsal is a great skill developer, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking, and pinpoint passing. The speed of play is such that you are forced to make quicker technical and tactical decisions.

Prithvi- Sports Event

Cricket - A brief introduction

Much has been written about the game of cricket - its origins, how it's played, where it's played, the nature of the game. Yet to those not initiated into the game - 'looking in' from outside - cricket is an enigma at the best of times, it is seemingly boring and hence lacking in excitement, stretching pointlessly over time and occasionally without a purpose.

On the contrary for most of those who are 'in' and 'looking out' - cricket is in fact a 'wonder sport' - which encompasses a multitude of attributes and characteristics seldom found so conveniently compressed into one single sporting activity. Above all cricket is fun!

Broadly, apart from the sporting skills that cricket develops in the players, as importantly it also develops the intangible attributes of:
o A sense of sportsmanship and fair play
o Building the characters of the players
o Mental thinking by the players at strategic and tactical levels
o Ability to read the opponent's mind
o A sense of discipline - to accept without question the decisions of the umpire

The other aspect about cricket is that it is probably one of the fastest evolving sports in the world, constantly adapting itself to the ‘demands’ of a changing global audience. However through this process of evolution that is constantly taking place, the beauty of cricket is that it retains the essence of the game – which is the issue of ‘fair play’. This process of ‘fair play’ has become a cliché, in that the English language has adopted the phrase “it’s not cricket” when any matter presented, is seen to have an unacceptable bias.

Incidentally, in case you didn’t know, Cricket is the second most popular game in the world with a base of close to 3 billion fans!

Rounds:

Quarter Finals

6.The result of a tied game will be decided by super over. In case of a tie after super over, the team hitting maximum number of Sixes in the match (including super over) will be declared winner.
7.The LBW rule will be applicable.
8.Leg byes and byes will be allowed. Free hit will be awarded for no ball
9.Players to wear appropriate standard dress code (shorts instead of pants will not be allowed)

Housie (Tambola)

Housie (Tambola) - A brief introduction
Housie or Tambola is a gambling game. This is a very simple yet interesting game. All modern lotteries are also very similar to this particular game. In this game any number of players can play at a time and each player will have a ticket with random numbers of 9 (any btw 1 & 99) arranged in 3 rows and 3 columns. Players mark off numbers on a ticket as they are randomly called out, in order to achieve a winning combination. A typical housie ticket contains 9 numbers, arranged in three columns by three rows. The game is presided over by a caller, whose job it is to call out the numbers and validate winning tickets. He will call out the numbers as they are randomly selected, either by an electronic Random Number Generator (RNG), by drawing counters from a bag or by using balls in a mechanical draw machine so as to avoid repetition of the numbers. Its “HOUSIE” if a player marks all the numbers in the ticket before anyone else does. That is he becomes the “Full house” winner. Similarly if a player marks all the numbers in the first row, middle row, last row, corner column and middle column before anyone else does then he becomes the winner for the same.
