Research Report: Corporate Real Estate in India: Aligning with the Business and Creating Value
The real estate sector in India is an important one. From the booming residential sector, looking to contribute
to the needs of a growing population, to the retail sector, catering to the demands of an increasingly wealthy
middle class, there is a lot of activity surrounding the built environment in India. Similarly, with the economy improving, and India still on the radar

Presentation: The Productivity Imperative
Defining and capturing productivity improvements is a moving target. For CRE executives, the ability to drive improvements in business productivity is the key to aligning efforts with strategic direction. However, to capture senior leadership’s attention you must be able to measure and demonstrate this productivity contribution. This session shares insights from a survey of 20 leading companies’ CEOs - who share how they measure productivity in their organizations. The results reveal a surprising disconnect between the areas CEOs are focusing their attention and those areas where real estate can have the greatest productivity impact. A framework – developed from the survey results – will be presented that outlines four key areas that CRE executives can focus on in order to achieve immediate and substantial productivity gains.

Labs and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Speakers: Despina Katsikakis; Iolanda
