Topic Description:

Indian literature is replete with concepts and examples which are akin to those present in modern management, and project management. This talk will take some topics in today's management - Change, Learning, Leadership, Quality, Success, Wealth, Work, Focus, Spoken Communication, Health and Human Nature - and give correlations and references to relevant extracts found in our literature, from ancient to modern. Several examples related to these concepts will also be highlighted. This talk concludes with some common maxims, which reference situations in everyday corporate life; and a nice literary message found at a busy intersection in our own Bengaluru. Focus is on two of our Indian languages; similar ideas being documented in other Indian languages too.

Expected Take-away:
This session provides four important aids that are required to leverage politics in project. The audience will gain insights on actual verses and quotes from our books, along with similes and examples as follows:
  • • Change – Examples of Fly-by-Wire, Gesture
  • • Learning – Receptacle, Arrogance, Humility
  • • Leadership, Quality – Walk the Talk, ‘Politics’
  • • Success, Wealth – Example of Sleeping Lion; Shyness, Doubt, Criticism
  • • Work, Focus – Silent, Diligent; ‘Blind, Deaf’
  • • Spoken Communication – Truth, but no harm; Yes Men
  • • Health – Significance of Food, Mind – Bondage and Freedom
  • • Human Nature – Three temperaments, Example of Neem Tree
  • • Maxims
  • These similes and examples not only make these concepts to be demonstrated easily, but also help in deriving correlations during our daily work situations.
