The story of Mahindra War Room victory

Mahindra War Room (MWR) is one of India's most prestigious annual business school competitions; this year was the 8th Season of MWR.

MICA has over the years been a close contender in MWR, with us securing Runners Up position two years ago and making it to the CEO's round last year being among the top 23 in the country. This year, Team Zealots from MICA were national winners, an accomplishment I consider one of my most significant.

From picking the case among the list of 22 cases given, choosing something that seemed relevant, interesting and disruptive was what we as a team had in mind while making the initial selection.

After hours spent doing primary and secondary research, brainstorming with team members, poking holes in our idea, ironing out the creases, the day for the West Zone Regionals approached. MICA being a wild card entry was up against other prominent B-schools in the West Zone.

Our first hurdle was a pat on the back for us when we were announced the West Zone Finalists. The next step was to present to the CEOs of the Mahindra Group in Mumbai. The top 23 teams from an initial 10, 000 entries in this year's competition made us feel special and pushed us to work harder.

Refining our idea while retaining the nuances and story-telling was our strategy. With the spirit of disruptive innovation in the air, we were fuelled further to make sure we built a strong case, supported by numbers, rationale and the MICAn edge.

The CEO's round had us pegged against five other premier MBA institutions with the finest minds presenting on a range of cases: Agribusiness, Two Wheelers, Auto, Technology, Hospitality and Retail. Being a part of this process was tremendous learning and gave us a chance to interact with our contemporaries across the country enriching our experience.

Post the CEO's round results we were overwhelmed to know that we made it to the TOP 8. Up next was the opportunity to present to the Group Executive Board, Mahindra & Mahindra, industry stalwarts, heads of businesses that we admired and Anand Mahindra. With TV cameras, excitement, zeal and the desire to win we walked onto that stage and told our story. The rest is history, Team Zealots made history that day. We were the first MICAn team to ever win Mahindra War Room, with our case on Club Mahindra being a disruptive innovation in the vacation ownership space.

As for the myriad feelings that consumed us? Ecstatic wouldn't even begin to cover it. The feeling of accomplishment, the joy of winning, the sense of satisfaction was compounding. My teammates and I celebrated a victory we will all remember, as friends, colleagues and most importantly, as MICAns.
