In his welcome speech, Chocko Valliappa, Founder Trustee of SIAS said that Change Management is becoming more and more important as companies move up value chain from off shoring to outsourcing. Globalization, reengineering and outsourcing are all propounding need for change management.
Prof. JL Gandhi, Dean of SIAS mentioned that program would start on 27th of September and would be structured over 5 semesters.
