In global industries today traditional business rules have not been able to hold ground in unpredictable situations of economic crises. The market is challenged to formulate dynamic businesses and industries that can rewrite the rules of the global economy to cope with sudden fluctuations. This creates a demand for professionals who can learn and unlearn faster to adapt to dynamic roles which are more leadership-oriented. Companies are finding it increasingly difficult to source the right talent. To overcome this crunch, a bottom-up paradigm shift is required in the educational fabric, and a strategic reworking in the curricula content and the manner in which knowledge is delivered to students.
