If you think that theory, practice, technology, and affordable price are a contradiction in terms, think again. DRM SG is in continuous attempt to turn RIGOR into RELEVANCE with the proper infusion of ICT. Furthermore, competitive pressure on growth often blur uniqueness, create compromises, and reduce fit. Therefore, at this time of economic uncertainty and turbulence, DRM SG is timely and relevant for executives eager to study and conduct research concerning the right blend of strategy and growth imperatives
