Management in most business schools is taught as a bundle of
techniques, such as the one of budgeting. However, the essence
of management is not techniques and procedures, but to make
knowledge productive. The Thirukural enunciates a variety of
principles indispensable to modern management.
- Overview: Leadership can best be described as a process
by which a person influences others within the organization
to accomplish an objective. The Thirukural defines the job of
a leader (prince or chief executive officer) as that of planning
the strategy, earning revenue, preserving what has been earned
and spending it wisely.
