India’s premier management institute Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) has become a part of the biggest training regime in the country for an entire system.

The programme is being conducted by Professor Neharika Vohra, faculty of organizational behaviour at IIM-A.

It was a year ago that the Delhi government had approached IIM-A for the training.

"It is a leadership training, where various aspects of leadership at schools will be discussed. This include how to work with parents, how to work with the school management committee, how to have more innovations among teachers, how to develop teachers and how to work with data. It is all about school management and leadership," Professor Vohra told TNN.
