THE SMART WAY TECHNOLOGY
The iconic management treatises; The HP Way & The Toyota Way, akin to the iconic companies, well documented upon are effective roadmaps. The HP Way is a treatise on the creation of a unique management style in the broader story of a garage to multi billion dollar company, the vision & its execution; on solid foundations of business ethics. The Toyota Way is epitome of management mantra of continuous improvement & respect for people. Core organisational principles hold good for all.
Quite contrary to solid organisational, ethical & business principles, we seem have developed “A SMART WAY“, contrary to the long term interests of the organisations, cutting the foundations of vision & strategic planning, a messed up creation, execution & implementation process & a nebulous roadmap. In this unpromising future & a challenging environment, individuals outshine themselves, the organisation & the society, reaching eminence & success without the commensurate delivery. It’s a make believe world, the The Smart Way.”
Truly Indian, cutting across of organisations, these professionals are executing The Smart Way to perfection. The undercurrent is lack of substance & sustenance, an aura of success & temporary achievements.It’s so difficult to compare the perspective, strategic, annual plans, targets, execution, impact & roadmap, if any. We are lost in the wilderness of management & governance, with technology & rational people’s aspirations making it worse.
From the reputed R & D institutions to the new world of start ups, the underlying story is the same. Huge individual successes/ figures are flaunted, the presumed saga of solid success never comes to the fore.Hitting the public domain with announcements, initial short gains, likely collaborations, funding is no way. Declare a product, final creation, long drawn impact or self sustaining billion dollar company. Resurgent organisations can only make a resurgent nation.
THE SMART WAY CANNOT BE AN EVASIVE WAY. AN ENDURING WAY CAN BE THE ONLY SMART WAY.
