Business Sutra



Business Sutra Why we do business impacts how we do it and what ultimately gets done As is belief, so is behavior, so is business This is Business Sutra, a very Indian way of doing business.It is very different from Management Science, taught in business schools around the world, which does not factor in belief, because belief is subjective truth, hence cannot be measured.Despite the veneer of objectivity, Management Science is rooted in Western belief Just as ancient Greeks celebrated Elysium, much cherished heaven of heroes, and the Bible speaks of the Promised Land, ultimate destination of faithful, Management Science is goal oriented, obsessed with vision, mission, objectives, milestones, and targets.By contrast, Business Sutra is gaze oriented Great value is placed on the practice of darshan how we see the world and our relationship with Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, whose image adorns Hindu homes, Jain temples and Buddhist stupas.If we believe that wealth is something that needs to be pursued, we end up turning the workplace into a rana bhoomi, a battleground of investors, regulators, employers, employees, vendors, competitors and customers.If we believe that wealth is something that needs to be attracted, we end up turning the workplace into a ranga bhoomi, a playground where everyone is happy.Communicated symbolically through the stories, symbols and rituals of India, which have been transmitted across the subcontinent for centuries, Business Sutra reveals a radically different approach to management, business, goverance, leadership, even economics and politics, that India seems to have forgotten, and the world has overlooked.Who better to unravel it than India s foremost mythologist, renowned speaker, columnist, author, leadership coach and Chief Belief Officer of Future Group, Devdutt Pattanaik.He reveals how Management Science is based on the assumption that the world is finite, certain, controllable and linear But in a global village, where everything is volatile and vibrant, there is need for a theory that iscomfortable with infinity, diversity, uncertainty and non linear modes of thinking Hence, Business Sutra.

    When you think of mythology and management, it becomes very difficult to connect the two Doesn t it I am sure anyone would think it is impossible or close to being impossible, however that isn t the case for Dr Devdutt Pattanaik, who when speaks of mythology, does not consider it any different from daily living He doesn t categorize or compartmentalize the concept at all When Dr Pattanaik writes or talk of mythology, he weaves it seamlessly into what we call living He doesn t treat it any When you think of mythology and management, it becomes very difficult to connect the two Doesn t it I am sure anyone would think it is impossible or close to being impossible, however that isn t the case for Dr Devdutt Pattanaik, who when speaks of mythology, does not consider it any different from daily living He doesn t categorize or compartmentalize the concept at all When Dr Pattanaik writes or talk of mythology, he weaves it seamlessly into what we call living He doesn t treat it any different and may be that is the reason why we get his writing the way we do It is simplistic and at the same time given the expertise, doesn t come across as overbearing.His new book, Business Sutra A Very Indian Approach to Management aims at breaking all myths and vague ideas people have had about management in our country He takes almost each concept one by one and bares it to its minimum, thereby rationally ex...

    Reviewing is as much a subjective experience as reading This isn t so much a review as much as it is an attempt to record my experience of reading this book the things that stayed back with me, the things that registered in my mind and the things which will perhaps make me revisit the book again some day.The book,as many have rightly pointed out, is not the kind one can finish quickly It isn t an easy book to read Not because it is difficult to comprehend Or sprawling Or moribund But bec Reviewing is as much a subjective experience as reading This isn t so much a review as much as it is an attempt to record my experience of reading this book the things that stayed back with me, the things that registered in my mind and the things which will perhaps make me revisit the book again some day.The book,as many have rightly pointed out, is not the kind one can finish quickly It isn t an easy book to read Not because it is difficult to comprehend Or sprawling Or moribund But because there is so MUCH that this book has to offer, that one must, once in a while, set this book aside and give oneself time to process one s thoughts.The book starts with a comparison between Western philosophy, Oriental philosophy and Indian philosophy So far, the very little of philosophy that I have read happens to be mostly Indian philosophy And so I have consciously decided to revisit this section of the book, when I ll hopefully have read someon Weste...

    A very impactful book challenging the core beliefs of our workplaces the ones which make us crib about our professional lives Belief Behavior BusinessOrganizations work hard to model our behavior so that business can be done but no one talks about the belief system of a person which leads to a certain kind of behavior The focus is on goals rather than the person which dehumanizes the organization The thread which links Belief to Behavior to Business is the Business Sutra.Author say A very impactful book challenging the core beliefs of our workplaces the ones which make us crib about our professional lives Belief Behavior BusinessOrganizations work hard to model our behavior so that business can be done but no one talks about the belief system of a person which leads to a certain kind of behavior The focus is on goals rather than the person which dehumanizes the organization The thread which links Belief to Behavior to Business is the Business Sutra.Author says that this goal oriented approach is a Western manifestation of an efficient workplace People there believe in just one life and every goal has to be completed in this life itself by hook or by crook But us, their Indian counterparts have faith in the concept of multiple lives and Karma We don t understa...

    It is not a very usual experience that you read a book on management and you are gripped within its stories and intricacies Devdutt Pattanaik is definitely does that with no apologies Business Sutra looks at management through the Indian perspective The writer uses symbols, codes, stories from Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism to put forth his perspective He also uses the Mahabharata and Ramayana as the background as if he was born to tell the stories and break the myths to bring in a new point It is not a very usual experience that you read a book on management and you are gripped within its stories and intricacies Devdutt Pattanaik is definitely does that with no apologies Business Sutra looks at management through the Indian perspective The writer uses symbols, codes, stories from Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism to put forth his perspective He also uses the Mahabharata and Ramayana as the backgrou...

    This is not a practical guide on how to conduct business It is ageneric philosophy on how to broadly think about business, linked to Indian mythology and certain imagined anecdotes A littlereal world correlation with solid cases to back up the claims would have made itrelevant Best used as a philosophical compass on how one may conduct himself in corporate business set ups, and even then some of the advise seems a little too oblique for the real world scenarios we face eve This is not a practical guide on how to conduct business It is ageneric philosophy on how to broadly think about business, linked to Indian mythology and certain imagined anecdotes A littlereal world correlation with solid cases to back up the claims would have made itrelevan...
