Description - Management by Values by S. K. Chakraborty

This original work is based on the premise that Values are as (if not more) germane as Skills for the effectiveness of managers in industrial and commercial organizations, and that these are unique to every society. It is therefore extraordinary that Indian managers should, along with managerial and technological skills, import values-systems from countries such as America which have no roots there and, besides, lack the systematic and profound philosophical foundations of the Indian values-system developed over hundreds of years and deeply embedded in the Indian consciousness. The result, a skills-strong, values-weak orientation which has acted to the detriment of efficient organizational functioning. After examining the Japanese, Chinese and American experiences with values-systems, the book analyses in detail the great Indian classical texts on philosophy/psychology and the views of distinguished Indian managers and a systematic training regime based on a careful analysis of the results of courses on values-training for senior managers conducted by the author for 8 years at the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta.
