In a recent global survey, over 75% of senior executives have put innovation at the top of the agenda to drive growth in their businesses. It is a known fact now that creating a climate of innovation is not a luxury, but a basic goverance choice.

It is in this context, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organising INNOVATION CONCLAVE: "Driving Growth through Innovation" on Tuesday, 15 June 2010 at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. Breakthrough Management Group International (BMGI) is the Knowledge Partner for the event.


To highlight the practice of conceiving, fostering, launching and managing new ideas; not just new products or services, those are distinct but make significant usage of a company's current core assets and by learning from the leading companies that have made innovation a key driver to Business Growth.
