SUCCESS STORY OF INFOSYS
Infosys BPO, a 100% subsidiary of Infosys Ltd is one of the largest BPO’s in the country. The current revenues of the company stand at $800 million. Weschool, Bangalore started its Management Development Centre in October 2007. Prof. AKN Prasad joined Weschool as the Head of the Centre with a mandate to build and grow the center’s activities. Prof. Prasad had garnered comprehensive operational knowledge of the challenges faced by BPO’s and their entry-level executives with his experience at Optimus – a Polaris BPO company which he headed before joining WeSchool. Prof. Prasad approached the Infosys BPO with a plan to create an Executive Program to help develop their entry-level executives, the Infosys BPO accepted the proposal and provided a contract for a 16 to 18 month, 400-hour Management Program called JMLP (Junior Management Leadership Program), based on the course structure and design provided by MDC under Prof. Prasad’s guidance. The idea behind the program is to control attrition, provide holistic management education to graduates and build a mid-level leadership pipeline in the organization. The two initial batches were launched in February 2009 at their Bangalore center. The 3rd and 4th batch were launched 6 months later at their Pune center. There have been continuous launches of JMLP programs ever since. JMLP graduates have performed very well in their assigned roles and have also moved up the corporate ladder to assume greater responsibilities. JMLP, designed and delivered by MDC WeSchool is one of the biggest success stories in the corporate executive development program.
