IIM-Ranchi wanted to map M.S. Dhoni's brain, and he became a case study in IFIM. Sports and management have never been disconnected. Now, it’s IIM-B which is coming up with a sports-based education programme. The Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIM-B) will tie up with Tenvic, a professional sports consulting company owned by cricketer, Anil Kumble, for a two-day sports-based executive education programme for middle and senior managers. The programme will leverage the experiences of sports persons to develop a learning platform for corporate executives and help them approach day-to-day situations differently. The programme titled Learning from Sport is scheduled to be rolled out on March 16th and 17th. As part of this programme, successful sports persons from various sports will share their anecdotal experiences.
Classroom sessions, interactive talk, panel discussions, video-based case studies and informal interactions will be part of the learning frameworks co-created by IIM-B and Tenvic. The programme will expose participants to several innovative concepts like altruistic mentoring, performance-based leadership, managing the ups and downs of the game, cross training and equipping with skills beyond their role and leadership jugglery. Said Shyamal Roy, chairperson, executive education programmes, IIM-B: Being a first-of-its-kind programme, It gives us a head start in exploring the various facets of leadership and other behavioral traits that the corporate world can learn from the sports world. This programme cuts across the conventional management experiences and draws on the learning from sports to empower corporate to tackle challenging business situations, said Hari Iyer, VP, Learning from Sports, Tenvic.
