45th National Competition for Young Managers, 2019


About Theme:

Smart Organisation: Innovative, Capable, Competitive

Charles Darwin famously has said “It Is Not the Strongest of the Species that Survives But the Most Adaptable”

These words are so profound to the current business and economic environment. In the face of onset of disruptive and technologies and business models, every organization and the functions under it are faced with challenge of adapting – quickly.

The perspective of an organisation existence itself seems to be undergoing a rapid change of meaning and intent. From a viewpoint to have an organization that maximized shareholders value, there is an increasing demand of having organisations which maximize stakeholders wealth. Environment, nation, society and communities are gaining greater importance than only the bottom lines. So, in a way, it is a dual challenge – to stay ahead in terms of its place in the marketplace, yet walk the very fine line being a responsible corporate citizen.

All functions, without exception, have a role to play in achieving the above twin objectives. While functions like productions and operations strive to balance between adopting new technologies to produce better quality products and reduce costs, they have an equally important task of preventing unnecessary loss of jobs.
Finance needs to work on most efficient ways of raising and utilizing capital and invest it optimally to have a healthier and smooth running organization while making provision to improve technologies, invest in the future and spend on employees and stakeholders.
HR and Training and Development have their task cut out in terms of skilling the existing manpower to take up the challenges of the future. They also need to man the organization with right-skill manpower and strike a healthy balance between experience of the past generation and dynamism of the current and the future generations.
Sales and marketing need to focus on customer benefit maximization with increasing focus on qualitative products and services at reasonable prices by adopting ethical practices and mediums for consumer outreach.

Over and above, the Top Management needs to ensure that it pays back the stakeholders by discharging its responsibilities as the responsible member of the society.
