Saumya Sindhwani; Geetika Shah; Srishhti Sinha; Rajshree Shukla

The case is set in November 2021 and traces the journey of a unique women-led collective-Weavers Resource Bridge (led by Talish Ray and her fellow handloom enthusiasts)-that provided much-needed financial support to a community of weavers across India during the COVID-19 crisis. These weavers hailed from different parts of India and were masters of their art forms, but due to lack of capital and patronage, were slowly losing touch with their art because they were forced to take up other work to sustain themselves and their families.

Teaching & Learning

The Teaching & Learning activities at the CLMP are focused on the following broad areas:

  1. Encouraging and supporting the writing and publication of high-quality India-specific cases;
  2. Implementing the “assurance of learning” programme for all degree programmes at ISB;
  3. Assisting in the measurement of the impact of executive training programmes conducted at ISB;
  4. Enabling teaching excellence in the classroom at ISB and in business schools across India;
  5. Encouraging the practice of innovative pedagogies in the classroom, in the form of technology and simulations.

Assurance of Learning

Assurance of Learning (AoL) is the process towards continuous improvement of a program. The primary purpose of doing AoL is ensuring that students have achieved the goals we have set. The process entails the program to - define its learning goals, assess student achievement for these goals, and utilize what is learned through assessment to continually improve its curriculum.

Workshops & Conferences

The Centre for Learning and Management Practice organizes several annual and one-time events which are in line with its objective of facilitating overall improvement of pedagogy at B-schools. To conduct several of these events, the Centre invites members from ISB faculty, including those who may be visiting faculty from top international schools.

Management ReThink


The idea of ISB Management ReThink was born out of the impending need to revisit and redefine the time-tested tenets of management, and at the same time, identify how they can still hold on to their relevance in contemporary times. With the ever-changing dynamics of management philosophies, and the associated classroom teaching methodology, it is about time to readjust the focus by shaking the fundamentals, breaking myths and bringing about the change necessary to survive in this cut-throat era of stiff competition.

With this platform, we extend our enthusiasm to collaborate with India Inc. on the latest trends and challenges in the industry, as the world economy stands at an extraordinarily crucial juncture. With the universe of business becoming more glocal (global+ local) than ever, connecting our worlds in remarkable ways, Indian industry is all set to play a key role in this disruption leading to a new world order.

Our endeavour is to collaborate across boundaries and share inspiration as an essential element of our comprehensive approach. To broaden our perspective and in order to inspire each other, we must be inquisitive about the world around us and open ourselves to new thinking.

Our aim is to forge new partnerships between academia and the industry via our erudite content. Empowering our readers with intelligent, contemporary and out-of-the-box content, we are keen to initiate a knowledge dialogue that would not only bridge the gap, but also impact the entire eco-system in a fundamental way

Women's Excellence Initiative

Women's participation in the workforce in India has been abysmally low. Indian women’s contribution to the GDP is one of the lowest in the world (17%). Lack of female participation in spite of them being active in secondary and tertiary education is worrisome. Further, while a number of young women do join the workforce, the numbers get thinner as one looks upwards at the corporate pyramid.

Through Women's Excellence Initiative, we undertake research to understand and identify the root-cause of the common issues that inhibit women engagement and growth in the workforce from an Indian and Asian perspective and at the same time assimilate the best practices from across the world. 

The Women's Excellence Initiative is aimed at encouraging dialogue, discussion, debate and ideation on how to engage, retain and accelerate more women in the workforce by understanding their challenges and ensuring meaningful data-driven solutions. Indian School of Business continues to significantly contribute to women in business through all its programmes.


Practice-led research

The Centre will facilitate collaborative projects between industry and government agencies with ISB research centres and institutes and faculty to enable the development of forward-looking insights into key topics such as Strategic Human Capital, Managing Across Borders, Value Migration and Financing Innovation. These co-funded projects will shed light on topics that are of particular interest in growth-oriented, dynamic yet volatile emerging markets.
