Press Trust of India  |  Singapore 

India's corporate sector, including small and middle size companies, needs to accelerate internal process of management and scale up the best practices to keep pace with the fastest growing national economy, according to experts.

The experts, who participated in the Global Convention 2018 from December 5 to 7, called for more efforts to match the in-house standards and processes set by American and European corporations and stressed on the need to adopt Enterprises Risks Management (ERM).

ERM are the methods and processes used by organisations to manage risks and seize opportunities related to the achievement of their objectives.

"Given the opportunities in India, we need the corporate world fully internally protected and adopt the ERM framework," Atul Temurnikar, co-founder and of the Global Indian International School in and also the of the convention, said.

According to the experts, the improvement in business operations among the Indian companies is slow and needs to be at par with the American and European standards.

"The American and European companies have far stronger and stringent standards. Their internal way of working is also far more process and control driven," N V P Tendulkar, a of two Indian companies, said.

Stating that still has a long gap to be at par with global corporate on good governance, urged family-owned businesses to make "mind-set change" from their own operating legacy.

"Corporatise, reduce the and enhance governance, as it is very important to adopt global standards very fast," he said.

The experts said that large number of mid-and small size companies are not focusing on managing their risk across the supply chain.

"Some very big companies are doing while many others are doing it from the perspective of compliance," Sarang Mahajan, Principal, at Du Pont Sustainable Solutions, said.

"But we would like to see the big companies leading the compliance and be couple of steps ahead of the game. They should also help their suppliers in the tier 2 and tier 3 to fulfill the compliances," he added.

The convention was organised by the UK-based establishment and was held in the midst of Indian professional community based in familiar with business cultures in and

"This makes it an important platform for Indian and South East Asian businesses to adopt best global practices, explore and exploit regional business opportunities," Sanjiv K Aiyar, President, Pan-IIM Alumni Singapore, said.
