Forget Classroom Learning

A Practical Guide to be a Successful Manager

Dr Swami Parthasarathy

Second Edition


The book, Forget Classroom Learning is differentially explaining the theory of management and describes real life from the manager’s point of view. In doing this, it offers a uniquely illustrated, practical and concrete guide to conducting your business life more positively and to becoming a better manager.


It was a conventional belief that one has to learn in classroom theory, to become a manager. But, the target keeps moving; events and people do not always conform long enough to be planned and controlled. The ways and means of management, therefore, involve continual experimentation with new approaches to old and new problems. Remember the maxim: “Try it, fix it, do it”.


Learning by doing is the best and the only way of gaining knowledge as classroom learning is nothing but the mental exercise of established knowledge attained through practice. But over a period of time classroom learning has become the primary means of learning due to lack of proper persuasion of knowledge through practical exposure and inadequacy of appropriate knowledge of instructors because of their sole dependency on theory and text rather than practical experience. So this book will help you to get the practical exposure through learning by doing rather than classroom learning.
