Change Management is the Buzz Word in today’s Business world.
As Management is a combination of Art and Science. In recent past
Management is borrowing lot of things from the old Religious Philosophy and Mythology.
Japanese were the first to take their old Buddhist Philosophy from Kaizen
Kai Zen.. It means Kai-Continuous, Zen- Improvement/Development.
It is a continuous process of development/Improvement in all fields of Management.
Toyota Production System is the out come Kaizen.
There is always a room for improvement in all fields of management , and all are trying to thrive for excellence and perfection. http://www.1000ventures.com/business_guide/mgmt_kaizen_main.html
Management has lot of things that it has borrowed from the Old Testament, the stories of Gospels has taught the HR field about positive attitude towards the work and corporate culture and corporate governance. http://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/search/?st=pendleton
Recently I have found in the west teaching from Gita is very much appreciated by Western Management experts.They are looking for Hindu Gurus who can give teaching from Bhagavad Gita on Leadership and Mahabharata which can teach the modern corporates about the Business Strategies.Nearly 10% of the Harvard Business Professors are from
Indian Origins they are taking about the Philosophy's of Gita in the class rooms and the corporates are benefiting from them . Karma is a very familiar word in Hindu philosophy how you perform your good work and you are paid back according to your Karma that you do.Yoga has been very handy for all the highly stressed business executives.
Managers should become KARMA YOGIS in order to excel and to achieve peak performance.It is the KARMA which ultimately matters for your life success or your business success.
Change is a continuous process , and Management is borrowing all great teachings from different religious thoughts.
May be time to come when Management can borrow things from Islam.
In Arabic Slam means Peace , and Islam it is a Religion of Peace.
