A very famous and near to my heart poem of Dr. Hrivansh Ray Bachhan “Rah pakad too yek chala ja pa jayega madhushala” meaning all paths leads to goal you choose any one and keep on going to get the goal. How wonderful thing!! The Indian Literatures in Vedas and Upanishads thousands of years ago have pronounced the same aspects for life. And felt amused when I realized that is pretty true in our business life as well. In the professional life In India we are pretty much confused on the ways to run a business. See in our companies today….they are adopting ISOs, they are doing 5 S, they are taking TS, they are going for 6 sigma, TQM, Lean and so many. No surprise at all there are many companies who has adopted all the systems known to them. But what is the out come ????? rejection is high, waste is high, customers are not happy…business results are disappointing. Where is the Gap???
6 sigma a proven methodology saved millions of dollars in Motorola and GE and win business and customer satisfaction of uncountable scale what happened to it in India (leave certain outliers)?. The same story is about all the quality philosophies which has revolutionized rest of the word is failed in our country. Whether philosophy or the people are the problem?? In my opinion the people are real problem. The answer also lies in above lines. The attitude makes a difference. If apply with religious or if I say in my language with all the quality values to any philosophy in the work place there is no reason of failing in achieving the goal. A renowned consultant of
shared a story while his sessions in the . He said that India is
knowledge hub, the peoples know every aspect of management if you ask them how
many have you applied ….it is zero. The real problem of the country lies here.
We learn....learn…..learn and keep on learning, knowledge without application.
Japanese may not know the concepts but you can witness it in the work place
applied religiously. Knowledge without application has no value. India
What we really need is the application, what ever we know… what ever we learn not matters really unless we apply it. What
needs today is application of
the knowledge. Fortunately we have the best knowledge resources of the world.
We can jointly make wonder in all the fields by religious application of the
learning’s and knowledge….lets do this!!!! India
