Vice-Chancellor of Bharathiar University C. Swaminathan speaking at a workshop on managerial competencies at the Bharathiar School of Management and Entrepreneurial Development in Coimbatore on Monday.

COIMBATORE: Vice-Chancellor of Bharathiar University C. Swaminathan has said that in order to ensure successful functioning of managers, there was a need to identify, hone and nurture competencies. Only this would help them compete on a global level.

Inaugurating a workshop organised by the Bharathiar School of Management and Entrepreneurial Development (BSMED) on “Emerging Skill Deficit to Enhance Global Managerial Competencies” at the Bharathiar University, he said the workshop was yet another attempt to rationalise, streamline and make appropriate changes in the syllabus and delivery mechanism.

Co-operation

The university was talking to University of Melbourne, National University of Singapore, and Singapore Management University, for mutual co-operation in realising the above aims.

Western principles

Director of Indian Institute of Management, Ranchi, M.J. Xavier, said that the Western perspectives, theories and practices in management should be replaced with an Eastern orientation. While the West was looking to the East for yoga, life style changes and transparent networking human skills, the East was looking to it for “those outdated Western principles”.

Management consultant Daniel K. Shanthakumar said that individuals should be trained to know about the self and the understanding of the self in achieving the desired results for individual excellence. Course ware should be loaded with individual development and performance variables.

The difficult task faced by the second and lower tier business schools was ensuring supply of talent and transformation of such talent to make it useful at the user's end, he added.

Chairman and Managing Director of CADD Centre India Private Limited, Chennai, R. Parthasarathy, said that to meet global challenges, competencies dependent on time, person and country should be developed.

Director R. Venkatapathy, Associate Professors S. Sankaranarayanan and Ajoy Mathew, of BSMED, also spoke.
