This is my concluding blog for the 19th NASSCOM India Leadership Forum.
For me, the central message from the proceedings across three days is: IT and BPO firms will need to build strong domain expertise and will have to embrace disruptive innovation to remain globally competitive and facilitate inclusive growth. You might say, what is so different in this message, as compared to what we heard Proscar price canada or read the last year.
I think that the context is different. During the last year, a large section of our industry was engaging with this message, more from the perspective of endurance and consolidation. In the backdrop of improving macroeconomic scenario, and evolved customer expectations, elements of this message need to be actioned differently. We now need to build domain expertise and engage with disruptive innovation to drive stable expansionary growth of the IT & BPO sector.

Speakers at the session a�?India & China: Two Paths to Successa�?, vociferously debated on the competitive advantages of India and China. My sense is that the future competitive advantage of India lies in entrepreneurship capable of delivering innovative, end-to-end, simple solutions unlocking value for companies and people simultaneously. These solutions could be in the form of products, processes or business models. We must now step forward to forge collaborations towards nurturing such entrepreneurship within and outside our firms.
