Why "Indian" Ethos? Aren't ethics in Business universal?
Each society has to draw its lessons on ethics from its own culture specific areas-its own psychological areasmakemake-up. It cannot draw its ethical lessons from another society. Hence the body of knowledge which derives its solutions from the rich and huge Indian system of ethics are known as Indian Ethos in Management.
Is IEM some kind of Hindu concept of management?
Certainly not. Management is behavioral science and it has to be culture specific. IEM has as its basis the culture base of India, and as a country whose culture has its roots in religion - it does draw its lessons from the religions of the land - be it Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other.
IEM concept of recognising the potential is fine, but the ground reality is that people are unwilling to work?????
An example on how one can work with ones subordinates
Method Tamasik Guide Rajasik Inform Satwik The Mahabharata talks of 4-types 4of dealing with people: Saam (treating equally), daan (rewarding), bhed (discrimination) dand (punishment). One has to judiciously use one of these methods in dealing with people. According to our scriptures people are oriented towards 3 character sets: Tamasik (the simpleton), Rajasik (the forceful/ambitious) Satwik (the wise). This is how do we conduct these 4 types of transactions with the 3 character sets.

Will moral education in the name of Indian Management help to change the situation?
Indian Management does not preach morality. The problem is how to implement good values in real life and yet become a great achiever. IEM teaches how good values pay better dividends, how honesty helps to grow in industry and business, how cooperation and not competition could be a better growth strategy.
