ABOUT THE BOOK

    In recent years, the Western management education and training citadels such as Harvard, Kellogg, Wharton and several others have experienced persistent failure of their modern management technology to inspire executive trainees and students to stay perpetually motivated in the face of growing challenges posed by economic liberalisation and globalisation trends sweeping across the world. Hence, modern management minds are looking for solutions beyond the reservoir of Western management thoughts and practices. They have examined and experimented with the Japanese and Chinese systems of management. Of late, their focus has shifted to Indian philosophy to find solutions to re-occurring irritants in efficient management practices. As a step in this direction, Western management executives, particularly in USA, are being cajoled to put purpose before self during retraining sessions at institutions of management learning. It is Ved Vyasa’s Bhagavad Gita through which they are attempting to enrich themselves with the supremacy of action. They are trying to enrich matter with forces of spirit, realising that the principle of karma has invaluable merits.

    The present work is an attempt at systematic presentation of the vital management contents as enshrined in Bhagavad Gita, the eternal Song of Wisdom. The book is a running treatise comprising principles, percepts and practices employed by Lord Krishna to achieve his mission incarnate objectives.

     The work is divided into IX Parvas (or Chapters).

     Parva I presents the wisdom concentrates of Lord Krishna in the form of brief analysis of selected management-relevant slokas from the Bhagavad Gita, the divine Song of Wisdom.

     Parva II delves on Lord Krishna’s approach to dignity of work, commitment appreciation, respect for reality, strategic intervention, efficient facilitation, intense rapport, internal conflict management, talent recognition, superior team management and management of uncertainties.

    Lord Krishna was a man of action, a unique manifestation of action warriorism. His action initiatives, at all stages of his life, are perpetual source of inspiration for productive action. His leadership qualities of divine proportions come alive in Parva III.

    Parva IV elaborates the intense thought warriorism of Lord Krishna. His unique thought prowess led him to command people of immense capabilities and diverse interests, with the finesse of a magician. His skills as a power thinker, his practice of thinking ahead, his divine doctrines of karma, dharma and non-material motivation, are described in this Parva.

  Lord Krishna was a true master of soft skills, the skills of verbal and non-verbal communication, logic and intellect, through which he managed friends and foes, juniors and seniors, and co-operators and antagonists, with equal ease. The humility and ethicality of his approach, respect for virtue and merit, effective empowerment of subordinates, superior emotion quotient, skillful ego management, total impartiality, and his irresistible technology of madhura, are detailed in Parva V.

   Parva VI is devoted to Lord Krishna’s skills as a teacher and as a guru. He was a guru with a spiritual core, and a guru of rectitude and alternatives. His relevance as a perpetual guru, and also as a management guru, is elaborated with essential brevity.

   Finer aspects of management, practised by Lord Krishna are detailed in Parva VII. Energy as a management tool, principle of causality, power of absolute, creative destruction, approach to managing the boss, and more significantly, the unified concept of management performance are discussed therein.

    Parva VIII presents the distilled wisdom of Lord Krishna’s management approach and practices. His divine skills of madhura, doctrines of karma and dharma, sanctity of objectives, among others, are discussed here as the omnipotent technology of management.

    Parva IX entitled as nectar of management wisdom covers the essentials of Lord Krishna’s management skills, practices, percepts and preaching.

Besides, the book contains a detailed introduction by the author in the form of preface, attachments, references and index.  

The work is topical in view of the fast changing business scenario across the world. It is relevant to deal with frequently encountered modern day management requirements and challenges.
