GroupM India has won the award for ‘Leveraging Unique Activities’ at the prestigious Porter Prize 2013 event. Porter Prize is one of the most coveted awards in the field of Strategy and Competitiveness and is supported by the Institute for Competitiveness India.

The Institute for Competitiveness India is an independent international initiative centered in India, dedicated to enlarging and disseminating the body of research and knowledge on competition and strategy, pioneered over the last 25 years by Prof Michael Porter of the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness, Harvard Business School (ISC, HBS), USA.

Prof Porter was chairman of the Jury. There were 88 companies that took part in these awards from various industry sectors out of which seven won a Porter Prize. GroupM is the first company from the media and advertising field to win this award.

Elaborating on the reasons why GroupM was chosen, Dr Amit Kapoor, Honorary Chairman, Institute for Competitiveness India, said “GroupM reflects effective rendering of activities across the value chain, how activities reinforce and synergies are created across its range of activities through an interlocking system that becomes basis for competitive advantage and sustainability. GroupM reflects an understanding that clearly states that good strategies depend on the connection among many things, on making interdependent choices and making a tailored value chain that competitors cannot easily imitate.”
