Equinox ’12 Graced by Xploryze

Xploryze, the case study competition organized by Abhijeet Srivastava and Vishal Singh, members of the OPEP club and PGP 2011-13 students, proved to be a huge success.

The case presented to the candidates, written by Abhijeet, raises questions regarding the ethical dilemmas in medical profession – whether doctors should work for charity or for profits. It also asks the candidates to prepare a strategy for building and successfully running a hospital, while providing some details about the founders. The case is given below. 
In the first round of the competition, students from all over the country were invited to form teams of two and submit a short presentation on their proposed solution for the case. The event was a phenomenal success as entries were received from IIM Bangalore, IIM Rohtak, IIM Indore, IIM Raipur, NITIE Mumbai and SP Jain to name a few. The best four entries were selected and the teams were invited to IIM Raipur campus to present their case analysis and solutions in the presence of a judging panel and the students participating in Equinox ‘12. The members of the panel were Dr. Manish Mattoo, an ISB Hyderabad alumnus and Director of Fortis Escorts Hospital and Prof. O. S. Vaidya, Faculty of Operations & Supply Chain Management, IIM Raipur.

The presentations by the finalists reflected very meticulous research and in-depth analysis of an otherwise alien field (medical) with respect to management students. Each presentation was followed by a rigorous Q&A session where, along with the judges, other participants and students too got involved in the discussions. The first position was bagged by Team Chanakyas from NITIE Mumbai.

The judges lauded the OPEP club and the organizers for the successful completion of the event, which attracted such wide participation.
The winning presentation by NITIE Mumbai is given below.
