    Dr. Prajapati Trivedi, Secretary Performance

    Managemenovernment of India and Chairman, National Authority, Chemical Weapons Convention, Cabinet Secretariat said,

    “It is a pleasure to be amidst the budding managers of tomorrow. I will share some of my journey with you, being a part of the Government of India. It is seen that the Government agencies are not perceived to be an organisation of efficiency. The reason for this is that such agencies need to face multiple principles and goals and the ‘not me syndrome’. All experts agree that performance depends 80% on the system and 20% on the people. In a bad system, good people can never survive. When the system is good, efficient people can work better. Actually it is very important to reduce quantity on Government and Increase quality of Government to churn in the best results. When there is accountability at the top, it tends to tickle down to other systems, sub-systems as well. In India, we have formulated our own RFD i.e. Results Framework Document. The quality of an efficient Government cannot be lower than that of its clients- specifically the private sector. For a perfect performance management system, it is important to have a good information system, a good performance evaluation system and a performance incentive system.”

  • Dr. Uddesh Kohli, Senior Adviser , Global Compact, United Nations, added, “There are many challenges which business organisations need to face in order to thrive in such a global competitive forum. Infact with globalization at its peak, multinationals are somewhat taking the crumbs of the local industries. However every company, whether big or small should abide by certain responsibilities for the society. The need of the hour is that corporates should demonstrate their concern for the society by positive action. Companies need to build up concerns on humanitarian grounds and should develop a corporate sensibility of their own. This concern can be made by corporate citizenship, corporate social responsibility, corporate sustainability and corporate responsibility. It is very important for the companies to put social issues on the boardroom agenda. Companies should mobilise employees and lend a human touch to employee relations; only then they will develop a sense of belonging towars the organisation. Infact customers should also be motivated to develop a sense of  social responsibility. Some principles that companies can follow are labour and human rights, take a pledge to contribute to the environment we live in, and retaliate corruption. One should know that what is needed, is an a sense of responbility towards both the corporate and social environment. You, being management students should learn to decipher the mantras of leading an organization in the most effective manner. Run ethically and care for the society as well. ”

    Emphasising the importance of regular interaction of industry with academic institutions, Dr S.N. Dash, Director (Officiating), Asia-Pacific Institute of Management said, “ It is an honour for us that we are starting the new year with the presence of two of the most reputed people who have genuinely made a mark as a true business professional.

They are the budding managers of tomorrow and it is extremely necessary for them to learn the nuances of the trade. We will continue to bring such programmes which will throw light to different managerial processess needed to establish and carry forward an organisation’s objctives.”
