About Course

Management Program curriculum provides a variety of theoretical inputs which are helpful in
enabling an individual to take decisions for running an organization effectively. In the current
state of affairs theses inputs are characterized by two peculiar aspects. Firstly, these are
based mainly on the western paradigm of the “world view”. Secondly, the current
management theories have been developed to improve the productivity of the business
organizations. Even when issues pertaining to individuals are addressed, they are perceived in
context of organizational performance. For instance, theories on motivation are developed to
improve the organizational performance. This overwhelming focus on organizations has over
time pushed the “individuals” at the distance.
It is increasingly felt that the current ideas do not adequately cover all the issues of major
concern to individuals and organizations. Many feel the need for alternative perspectives on
the problems and possible solutions. Ancient Indian wisdom has a set of ideas that present a
different perspective of the problems that individuals and organizations face and proposes
alternative ways of understanding several aspects pertaining to the domain of management.
This course is an attempt to bring these perspectives using Bhagavad Gita as the main
reference frame.
