From the time immemorial, India has discovered the fourth and unique faculty of human life that is ‘value system’, which defines and leads towards the Dharma (Righteousness). This is what makes a human being different from an animal. The quality and quantum of values in practice transforms an ordinary human being into an extraordinary sage or saint.
These values take the primary role of driving the human consciousness, lead humanity towards righteousness, and ultimately make them sustain in their real nature. Human values in modern management is nothing but practising management by conscience in modern world. Since the most solicited agenda in human life is sustainability into its real nature, human values only can lead oneself towards this direction and reach the ultimate goal of human life, the peace and solace.
Man has no other option than inculcate these values for achieving certain goal through the path of righteousness. This would not only make our life better but would also help in maintaining progress and prosperity of business and corporate management, or whatever progress one aspires for a meaningful life.
Today, the essence of human values no doubt is the lifeline of ‘the management capability’ of a person who is the key and leading figure of the entire management functions. The alarming rate of erosion of human values in management practices is a threatening factor to all round development of a nation. So, the development and practice of values is the only option for overcoming varied mental challenges in corporate life. Thus, values in practice in management shall surely transform an ordinary executive to an outstanding role model in management.
This book, Human Values in Modern Management describes the principal values of human life and its prospective effect in management practices, its application and inculcation in the field of corporate management practices.
