The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) works to create and sustain an environment conducive to the development of India, partnering industry, Government, and civil society, through advisory and consultative processes. CII is a non-government, not-for-profit, industry-led and industry-managed organization, playing a proactive role in India's development process. Founded in 1895, India's premier business association has over 8,300 members, from the private as well as public sectors, including SMEs and MNCs, and an indirect membership of over 200,000 enterprises from around 250 national and regional sectoral industry bodies. CII charts change by working closely with Government on policy issues, interfacing with thought leaders, and enhancing efficiency, competitiveness and business opportunities for industry through a range of specialized services and strategic global linkages. It also provides a platform for consensus-building and networking on key issues.
The CII-Suresh Neotia Centre of Excellence for Leadership is a part of CII’s integrated agenda for building competitiveness through Centre of Excellence. The Centre was set up on the basis of CII’s core belief that the quality of leadership will play a key role in enabling India to succeed in its mission for inclusive growth and competitiveness and claim its rightful position in the global arena. The Suresh Neotia Centre Of Excellence for Leadership envisages to play a major role in India’s growth agenda by catalyzing leadership development across all businesses and socio cultural demographics through a range of interventions especially focusing on “people” and “process” transformations.
