Interview with C K Ranganathan - Leverage culture for growth
Covid-19 has been a catalyst in driving organizations to change their ‘ways of working’ and made it imperative to redesign themselves, to move faster, adapt quickly, learn on-the-go, and embrace change at a speed of sound.
As many organizations are widely embracing remote work options, we are seeing a need for organizations to improve their efforts on employee affinity and customer centricity. This requires a strong culture of collaboration and high accountability.
We sat down with C K Ranganathan, Chairman & Managing Director, CavinKare Pvt Ltd to understand his views on what organizations are doing today from a culture perspective and what they should do to be a leader in the new business paradigm.

Interview with Shiv Shivakumar - What does the future hold
The most important question in every CEO's mind is "what next". The organizations have rarely felt that external global factors can have such a huge impact and they have so little in their control. The current crisis is really testing our very core. Resilience is so important. No planning and strategizing would have prepared the CEOs for this situation. However, the organizations cannot let the situation control our future.
We sat down with Shiv Shivakumar, Group Exec President, Aditya Birla Group to understand his views on how organizations are coping today and what they should do to be a leader in the post-covid era.
