Harvard to enhance intellectual capital in Sri Lanka

By Duruthu Edirimuni Chandrasekera

The Harvard Business Publishing (HBP) South Asia is talking to local firms in a bid to enhance their employee intellectual capital by offering custom designed training courses, officials said. “We have had some progressive discussions with some blue chip firms here in Sri Lanka on this regard and we will start these programmes within the next two months,” Vinay Hebbar, Managing Director HBP South Asia told the Business Times on the sidelines of a media briefing to announce the Management Studio and HBP partnership recently.

He said that together with Harvard Business School and the India Research Centre in Mumbai, the programmes that are offered to the local corporates brings on-the-ground, research-based knowledge of HBP with the global perspectives. “HBP is one of the world's leading business schools and we see potential in Sri Lanka mainly because it’s a country that’s well within the growth trajectory,” he added, noting that local firms that HBP approached were interested in the programmes that it had proposed so far.

He noted that these programmes provide firms with proven approaches for managing client expectations, developing staff, and formulating business strategies. “They will teach how to build stronger strategies through identification of a company's true competitive advantage and how to align an organisation for strategy execution,” he said. He said that the teachings will offer a unique combination of innovative research, marketing expertise, and deep insights about how successful organizations grow profitably in Asia.
