With a 690, your profile is as good as it can get. This means that if you focus on your essays and recommendation, you can expect at-least an interview call from ISB with surety. From there on, its your interview preparation that will get you through.
Your awards and work experience need to be mentioned in the right way, which means more than what you did, its important to mention what changes it brought to the organisation and also what do the awards speak about your leadership and teamwork skills.

Essay+Recommendation+Initiatives are the three key part to the ISB application. Spread your selling points across these three parts of the applications and you should be in a good position to get an interview call.

All the best and let us know for any further guidance/clarification.
