Press Brief on Leadership program at BIM Trichy

August 22, 2014

Bharathidasan Institute of Management conducted a leadership development program titled Being & Becoming a Leader for the middle and senior management of SMEs and MSMEs in Trichy region on 22nd August 2014. The program attracted participants across several industries ranging from manufacturing, health and hospitality, automobile, academia, IT and consulting.

The program was created with inputs from literature, psychology and philosophy and was delivered in the form of discussions, activities and case study analyses. The program had participants responding to great leaders of the world in the space of a thematic apperception test apart from ruminating upon the leaders in their family and professional life who have influenced them in their life and career. The program offered a quick insight into the extant literature on leadership and covered a wide range of theories from the trait theory of leadership to transformational theory, authentic theory, level 5 theory and finally theory of Managerial Grid which formed the leitmotif of the program. Managerial grid talks of leadership effectiveness as a balancing act between concern for task and concern for people.

An insight into the mind of a hero was provided by Ms Deepti Tiwary, Auroville. She drew from rich and ancient Indian texts like Upanishads and Gayathri mantra to elucidate her point. She transported the participants in to a deep world of meditation and inspiration where nothing is impossible for a hero. The program had carefully chosen two case studies for discussion which highlighted the need for a hero to learn how to do a task and how to manage people who will do the task. The cases, A Tale of Two CEOs underscored the need for a balance between strategy and action in a leader whereas the case Ganges – A Temporary Institution provided insights into how a leader can harness feelings that his team members may have for one another and for the organization for the benefit of all including the organization. The text of The Little Prince by St Antoine Exupery and IF poem by Rudyard Kipling was also used to buttress the point that one has to lead from the heart.

The program ended with every participant formulating a leadership plan for themselves for the short run and the long run. Some of the observations made by the participants on the program are:

  1. I was able to understand qualities that a leader must possess and the psychology of a leader through case studies. I also realized the importance of handling people’s feelings to become an effective leader – P R Kannan, Senior Program Architect, TAFE.
  2. I learnt about mind of a hero, different parts of mind and system concept. I also realized the effectiveness needed from a leader’s communication. K Gobinath, Engineer Purchase, Acoustics India Pvt Ltd.
  3. Task and people management was my key learning whereas as the diverse perspective offered during the program on the role of a leader was I thought the major strength of the program – Ms Gayathri Ragavan, GM Commercial, Harihar Alloys (P) Ltd

BIM again proves its marketing mettle!

February 28, 2014

BIM has once again proved its marketing mettle. It was a clean sweep by BIM students wherein they bagged the first two prizes of “Brand WarZ”, the flagship marketing event of ARCTURUS 2014 – the management festival conducted by IIM Trichy. It was a two day event phased into 3 stages – Preliminary evaluation was based on the executive summaries of the business plans; it was followed by a live presentation wherein the teams had to present the marketing plan of their respective products. The final round was a personal selling round, wherein the teams were required to literally sell the idea of their product to the model market (which was the current IIM Students and Faculty). This was the most interesting part where the teams had to clarify the doubts raised by the market participants. Based on the cumulative scores and the votes of the model market, the results were announced. Mr. Shivam Gupta, Miss. Tanvi Lamba and Mr. Baskar won the first prize for their product “Y-Note”- a miniature technology based replacement for school notebooks.  Miss. Harika, Mr. Sudharsan and Miss. Swati of PGP-1 bagged the second prize for their product – “Kryoptics” – a breakthrough revolutionary idea to eliminate the electricity usage by harnessing the sunlight.

Guest Lecture by Ms. Jayashree of DHL

January 13, 2014

“With a developing Indian economy, career opportunities for the MBA graduates in the logistics sector cannot be ignored” said Ms. B Jayashree, Head - International Supply Chain India at DHL Global Forwarding. Transition of logistics industry from an unorganised to organised sector, along with the ever demanding customers to reduce the logistics cost has increased the need for management graduates.

She also added that industries that previously gave the students the required ‘on job training’  now expects them to perform from the day one and in order to do this students must go beyond the regular text books to explore the industrial practises. Students with narrow specializations and  in-depth knowledge skills in that field are demanded more in the industries.
