The runaway success of the author’s earlier book, Management by Values: Towards Cultural Congruence demonstrated the widespread need Indian managers have felt for an integration of western management skills and systems with a holistic, home-grown cultural ethos and value system.
In this book, Professor Chakraborty develops the themes propounded in his earlier work to provide a systematic presentation of the relevant Vedantic and allied principles in a conceptual and empirical framework. From an overall perspective of Vedantic ethical vision and its application to managerial and corporate ethical morality, he examines what that system can teach us about individual leadership, transformation of the work ethos and ethics and productivity.
