Leading by competitive advantage: How diversification paved the way for immense success for OSL Group



A glance at the history of corporates shows that several conglomerates dominating the landscape merely started with a single product or an industry. However, when your revenues become your greatest wealth-building tool, they shouldn’t be limited to a specific industry for long-term success.

While establishing a flourishing empire isn’t an ordinary feat, your business cannot grow if you don’t diversify wisely.  Hence, uncharted territories are deemed to be the powerhouse of immense opportunities. As an entrepreneur, you have to take risks and innovate for reaching out where others don’t go. This is where the role of diversification in business comes in. As a major growth strategy, it involves entering into a new market or industry. Working on the same lines is Mahimananda Mishra, the managing director and chief executive officer of Orissa Stevedores Limited (OSL Group).
