Elaborating on the rationale behind organizing the case study competition, Subramanian Chidambaran, Strategy Leader, Cummins India added, “In today’s complex and ever-changing world, innovation is essential for businesses to thrive. At Cummins, we believe that the best way to innovate is to collaborate with a diverse range of stakeholders, including governments, academia, industry bodies, and communities. Our REDEFINE case study competition is designed to spark the creativity of young minds and encourage them to develop innovative solutions to real-world business challenges. I am confident that the students will find the case study intellectually stimulating and their insights will be invaluable for us.”
