While the Indian business scenario is changing rapidly, the attitude, orientation and practice of management has been slow to adapt. Indian managers have found it difficult to change policies both at the enterprise and the employee level to match an increasingly global and international environment.
This book discusses key issues such as: Indian management culture and emerging challenges; leadership styles and leadership issues that face Indian corporations; ethics and values and their impact on leadership and management culture; the issues confronting global corporations working in India; tackling human resources issues in the Indian context; and the emergence of the new global Indian manager.
Better Management & Effective Leadership Through the Indian Scriptures
Pustak Mahal, 18-Sep-2007 - Management in literature - 207 pages
Management as a subject and various theories associated with it are largely considered as brainchild of the West. the moment this topic is raised, the names of western thinkers, such as F.W. Taylor, Robert Owen and Peter F. Drucker, come to our mind. However, the fact is that all the management theories and hypotheses propounded so far, draw heavily from the Indian scriptures. Indian sages and gurus, like Sukra, Kautilya and Vedavyas laid the foundation to better management through their literary works as early as in the pre-Christian era. This book, Better Management and Effective Leadership through the Indian Scriptures, aims at discovering the treasure hidden in the Indian texts, making the management scholars all over the world feel proud of our literary heritage and appreciate the farsightedness of the Indian thinkers. It is an endeavour to reveal that, be it in any sphere of academics, Indian scholars were in no way secondary to their western counterparts; they were rather the precursors.
