Today we started once again early in the morning to our last company visit of Focus India 2012! A two and a half hour bus drive brought us to the „Universal Business School”. It was quite unexpected to see such a huge modern building between mountains and little villages. But as we learned during our on-site seminar: expect the unexpected!

After a warm welcome from Tarun Anand, Co-Founder of the Universal Business School and Managing Director and Senior Company Officer of Thomson Reuters South Asia in India, he showed us the whole campus area. It was impressive! After this short tour around the campus, we enjoyed presentations about strategic management in India as well as about Rapidly Developing Economies (RDE) and thoughts about “Building winning teams is a game of Inches”.

As it was the last official dinner during the On-Site Seminar, a playful and surprisingly entertaining evening was organised by the project team. Groups of 5 were built and various games, such as “dress like an Indian”, draw the Indian map and include the cities visited as well as a role-play of a scene happened during the two weeks were rated by the project team. Despite the aim to win the game, everyone enjoyed the evening and may soon be suffering of sore muscles from laughing. What a great end to such a great project!
