About the BookThe book is a compilation of insights on management practices in industries observed, conceived and practiced in India and abroad. It covers management of machines, materials and men. Some other equally important topics on the fringe, like management of productivity, management of infrastructure and waste management have also been covered in the book. Breaking from the convention, the author has taken liberty to include chapters on Science of Management, Knowledge Management, Making of a Manager, and Stray Thoughts on Management. Here he has played with his conviction, developed over a period of more than four decades of association with successful, professionally managed industries in India and abroad. The compilation ends with reference to a few case studies on management, adding different dimensions to highlight perceptive analysis of the corporate world. The most challenging aspect of management is how to engage people effectively to deliver in a consistent and innovative way. Exposure to various psychometric tools, developed by the behavioural scientists over a period of time, is of great value to the individual and the organization to assess internal mechanism so that reality on the people front can be understood and put to various practices. The book deals extensively on these features as well. The book provides a holistic approach to all facets of management with emphasis on practical applications. It amply justifies that effective management is secured on the foundation of science through the routes of developed techniques. The practicing managers will find the book insightful of how management has to be approached logically, rationally and intuitively. For aspiring managers, the book offers enough ideas, practices and valuable inspiration.About the Author/sA.B.
