Leading management institute IMD Business School, Lausanne in Switzerland has created a case study on the digital transformation journey of GroupM India..The case study is authored by Prof Anand Narasimhan and Transformation Project Manager Ivy Buche.


Commenting on the case study, CVL Srinivas, Country Manager WPP India and CEO, GroupM South Asia said: “It is an honour to be recognized by the world of academia and become a part of the IMD curriculum. In late 2012, the advertising and communications industry was challenged by digital disruption. As our business underwent metamorphosis, a critical part of the journey is taking the human capital into confidence and preparing them to work in a future-ready organisation. Along with the technology aspects of transformation, at GroupM India we successfully leveraged the talent dimension in implementing digital transformation. The case study will help other companies navigate their own transformation initiatives in a dynamic market.”


Added Prof Narasimhan: “I have taught the GroupM India case to different audiences. What is striking for our participants is the care and diligence that GroupM paid to the human dimension of digital transformation – the need to incorporate millennial voices and the imperative to train talented individuals to beef up their technology skills. GroupM India provides a great example for other companies to use digital disruption as an opportunity rather than a threat.”
