mahabharat is a great epic of our history, if we compare mahabharat with managements then we will find some ethical and unethical work under it.. so it is a nice and interesting assignment.

Ethics:
Simply put, ethics involves learning what is right or wrong, and then doing theright thing -- but "the right thing" is not nearly as straightforward as conveyedin a great deal of business ethics literature. Most ethical dilemmas in theworkplace are not simply a matter of "Should Bob steal from Jack?" or "ShouldJack lie to his boss?" Many ethicists consider emerging ethical beliefs to be"state of the art" legal matters, i.e., what becomes an ethical guideline today isoften translated to a law, regulation or rule tomorrow. Values which guide howwe ought to behave are considered moral values, e.g., values such as respect,honesty, fairness, responsibility, etc. Statements around how these values areapplied are sometimes called moral or ethical principles.
Mahabharata and management (ethics&values)
“YADAA YADAA HI DHARMASYAGLANIR BHAVATI BHARATA,ABHUTHANAM ADHARMASYATADATMANAM SRUJAMRUIHAM”.
Lord Krishna said
-”Whenever Dharma would be at stake, I would reincarnateto save this Dharti (EARTH)". I want to share something very revolutionary.About "MEANS AND MANAGEMENT “After getting a great assignment liketoday.The topic is “MAHABHARATA AND MANAGEMENT (ethics &values)". The topic sounds wonderful. Commencing with the most important part of Mahabharata. "PANDAVAS” though they were just five, but still were a perfect example of a team. Team with all qualities. Let me describe them indetail. Going in ascending order of age-1. SAHDEVA: Known for his intelligence2. NAKULA: For his horse riding3. ARJUNA: Archery4. BHIMA: Power and strength5.YUDHISTHIR: EthicsandKRISHNA: An invincible leader 
 
So don't you find a perfect team combo? Intelligence and planning in form of Sahdeva is there, horse riding depicting speed with smoothness is too there.Archery denoting accuracy and dedicated patience is there. Power in form of Bhima also counts itself into the team and above all the most mandatory part of any team. Discipline in form of Yudhishthir is too present. And last but not theleast the most important part of the team, the base, the foundation of team, Aninvincible and a wise leader-LORD KRISHNA. Is anything missing? No? Yes?Its DRAUPADI! So what do you think this part of team is for? A force or something? Or an entertainment factor? It’s for none of these.It’s for Glamour!And hence a perfect team is complete. Come to the Mahabharata war. How itall started?But let me explain a small incident that took place before it. OnceDURYODHANA and ARJUNA went to Krishna. Both of them asked for hishelp at the same time. What could he have done? He gave them an option oneof the either " Either me or my arm." And guess what? Arjuna opted foKrishna and Duryodhana for his arm and hence it all started. The mainconditions were given that Krishna was not supposed to use his super human powers.Krishna always said. "Dharma is the end what you achieve. Means don't countinto Dharma."
Let's infer something from this and apply it in themanagement arena.
So what can we infer?
Management is something whichdoes require some ethics
. But friends it’s not a place where you show your commitment to truth. It’s a place where you got to show your commitment toskills and plan to achieve the end. The path you achieve it is not important. Idon't say u can do anything and everything. You have to maintain minimum possible ethics to govern you, apart from that it’s you, your team and your leader whose wiseness is going to be counted.
Good managers
are not thosewho stand on their principles even if they come on a position to be thrown outof the company. They may be a good person but mind you, they would befailures when it comes to management. A good manager would be the one whowould act wise and save his job.
“SO AS I THINK! A GOOD MANAGER CAN BE A GOOD PERSON BUT A GOOD PERSON CAN'T BE AGREAT MANAGER. HE HAS TO PLAY SOMETIME OR THEOTHER!"
All these discussions were mainly to highlight the fact that“DHARMA IS THE DESTINATION AND NOT THE PATH WHICH ISTAKEN TO REACH IT!” Now I will justify all this by giving some examples-
