“Ancient Indian Wisdom and current corporate practices: A non-spurious correlation?” by Satyanarayana Parayitam, PhD.
Are Fortune 500 companies actually applying ancient Indian wisdom, unwittingly, and thereby getting a competitive advantage? Let’s examine the Vedic literature and Upanishads and epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata, to see how the modern corporate world may be incorporating the wisdom therein. The world is an economic jungle where only the fittest will survive. To adapt successfully and succeed, firms cannot rely on luck. Managers must put resources to best advantage and simultaneously insulate the firm from potential threats and risks. Success requires ‘wisdom’ and ‘integrity’ and sometimes something more, such as in kurukshetra (Mahabharata war) where individuals are subservient to their roles in the grand drama (dharma?) being played out.
