"I got to learn from the experienced faculty of IIM Kozhikode. The course helped me change my perspective regarding approaching a problem. The programme helps to look at a holistic picture when dealing with a situation at work. The interaction with participants from different areas of expertise provided a boost to the learning experience."


Former DGM, Design Head, Crocodile SP Apparels Ltd

"The course added value by helping me to unlearn and learn new approaches. It has brought changes in my perception towards a problem, understanding the science between few systematic approaches we follow already. The course modules were great, and I have learnt a lot from the faculty and peers. It was a unique combination of research mindset, faculty and peers from different industries. This course has helped me to understand how various departments approach a problem differently. It has also helped me to understand, communicate, negotiate with different departments more effectively."
