National Conference at St. Xavier's University, Kolkata - (December 19-20, 2019)
Digital technology has had a profound influence on value creation allowing businesses to create and deliver value to individual needs (B2I, i.e., Business to Individual). The technology has made information search, analysis and sharing easier and nearly costless. In addition, it has been argued that technology has created "winner takes it all" conditions in many markets.
Businesses are therefore getting organised around platforms, e.g., social interaction on Facebook, search around Google, entertainment around Netflix, shopping around Amazon and so on. Some of these platforms are participating in extended value-chains to become producers, e.g., Netflix and Amazon are investing large sums in content development. Also, consumer information has been leveraged as the main source of revenue by firms like Google or Facebook.
In a world where digital technology is fast becoming an integral part of the value-chain, this conference intends to explore the concept of value in this digital age or/ and for the digital consumer.
XLRI founded in 1949 visualized itself to be a partner in the liberation and development journey of the independent India with a vision of "renewing the face of the earth". Over all these years XLRI has developed its own identity. The hallmark of this identity is, not to walk on the beaten path but to strike new routes; not to benchmark but to be benchmarked, to be second to none but to be the first to respond to the needs of the people and the nation, by taking up the tasks which are bold but necessary which nobody has hitherto taken up.
CGMRL has been formed in 2010 at XLRI, Jamshedpur, India with the objective of promoting global, ethical, and sustainable business practices through the development of the requisite academic, curricular and outreach support for students and executives interested in global ethical business. Each year, CGMRL focuses on bringing researchers to deliberate on a topic aimed at helping promote responsible behaviour amongst individuals and organizations.
