Stratadigm was formed in March of 2005 by professionals from the financial services industry to meet the education needs of industry. Our mission is to enhance and maintain competitive advantage of the Indian IT, ITES and Financial Services sectors by providing context-relevant education tailored for the participants. This mission statement represents our desire to pay back our society which has nurtured us and invested in making us highly competent professionals. In pursuit of this mission, we have conducted seminars for most of the Indian banks, in the private and public sector. We have also anchored the training function for select clients in the ITES space, enhancing productivity and organisational effectiveness. We have also conducted overseas seminars. Background
We are founded on principles and value systems shared by all the associates who form this organization. We will deliver to customers a value which exceeds client expectations. We will consistently redefine the customer experience in delivery. We will seek clients who seek the growth and development of vendors. We will meet the intellectual, professional and financial aspirations of our associates. We will not deal with clients who would have us behave in a manner that we individually would not do. Our organization will adhere to its business principles. Values & Principles
It is important we continue to do the right thing on an ongoing basis. This applies internally, externally to customers and to our social conscience as well. The Advisory Board’s role is to ensure that we invest in ourselves, focus on the appropriate areas so that value is delivered to customers. The Advisory Board is the custodian of the values and principles of the organization. The Advisory Board is founded with Mr. Pramod Vaidya heading it. He is a respected and senior banker of over 30 years experience, most recently as the Corporate Head- Risk Management at the combined IDBI entity. The other member is Mr. Brian Ford, a banker of over 35 years experience including positions in Treasury at Bank of America where he established their London commodity and derivatives desk. Gradually and eventually the Board will expand to reflect the roles, responsibilities and the financial service areas we serve. The management of the company binds itself to the counsel of the Advisory Board. The Advisory Board
Our mission vis-à-vis customers, is to facilitate investment in human resource capital through a superior learning experience. Stratadigm programs incorporate following key elements to deliver this experience: - Academically rigorous, yet lucid - Practical orientation - Faculty who are Practitioners - Variety in Instructional Methodologies - Testing methodologies - Separation of Academic needs from commercial considerations Superior design and delivery has enabled us to acquire customers of national and international repute. We operate as business enablers for our customers, planning with them as a part of their business to the extent possible and permissible. Customers
We recognize the need to constantly update our skill set to remain relevant to our customers. This also fulfils the intellectual aspirations of our associates. To do so, we engage in selective consulting engagements the world over, which allow us to gain further experience and exposes us to best practice. These learnings find their way back to the classroom. We constantly seek engagements that would drive this purpose. Our work leads us to writing papers on insights achieved; for example we wrote a paper on the emerging US housing market crisis in April 07 which explains the dynamics in great detail. Other serious papers cover financial services marketing strategy and channel and product development in financial services. Consulting
We believe that knowledge, in its purest form is universal and freely available. Stratadigm’s learning programs are the bridge between a participant’s needs and the body of knowledge. Design is the key to building an effective bridge. We use a variety of instructional design methodologies in developing learning programs. Business objectives / learning needs are built into the design. Class room sessions are combined with simulation, games and case studies. Case studies used by us are not standard business school case work; they are cases written around the organizational context. Our testing methods vary based on the subject matter and client needs.
