About The Book

Professor Chakraborty has made a profound contribution to the art and science of Management Development with the publication of Foundations of Management work: Contributions from Indian Thought. He goes deep into the causes for the solutions to organizational problems. It is the courage to go deep, to essential cause that sets this book apart.

The book is a call to Indian managers to return to their sadhana. To turn to spiritual practice to develop themselves. To raise their consciousness. All management, Professor Chakraborty correctly notes, is finally subjective. Therefore, the cultivation and purification of man`s inner field, the realms which subjective decision are made, is central to effective management.
