The Exide Innovation Challenge is back this year for the brightest business school students in India to apply their creativity, managerial thinking and revolutionary ideas to Exide Industries Limited, India’s largest Lead Acid Battery manufacturing company.


The theme for the year is

“Powering Exide’s Inno

vision 2025”.

The term ‘Innovision’ has been coined keeping in mind development of the Vision document for 2025 with a focus on what innovations can Exide take up not just for its products and services that it offers to its customers but to organizational processes, systems, people management and environment.

Teams need to focus on their ability to develop a Vision 2025 document for Exide on their vision of the market and environment for battery manufacturers in 2025. The document will also contain suggestions to Exide on how the Company can plan and execute the vision and achieve success.

This year, the participating teams will undergo two levels of evaluation before the final selection. The finalist teams will be invited to present to the top management at Kolkata.
