This is one of the rare books on business management. It consolidates all the material in one book that matches the present requirement. Competent managers, if they know any one thing, know how to manage paradox. This is the powerful message of this book. Paradox confuses everyone because many events keep occurring unexpectedly. Although the paradox is Fifth Generation Management according to Charles Handy, a study of paradox-based management in university curriculum is not evident as yet, except a case cited in this book. Readers will find the relevance of paradox from start to end of the book as a special and unique feature worth learning and practicing.
This book has highlighted the problems presently faced by organizations, managers, leaders and students. Towards the right solution, a collection of pearls of wisdom acquired from the ancient and present way of modern management have been discussed and applied.
A concept starting from management foundation to successful management and ultimately to RESPONSIBLE management has been deliberated. Then a trilogy model of science,
spirituality and responsible management has been presented. Such a perspective can promote intellectual, emotional and spiritual capabilities to manage diversity at workplace and guarantee business growth.
Future indications are provided with a positive note for the young generation with India’s vision and priorities considering its core competencies and resources.
