CHAIRMAN'SMESSAGE DON’THIRE LEADERS Before you ask the obvious, let me get this out of the way – “why We are just a platform, rich in knowledge, experience, exposure should I hire a Jaipuria student?” Isn’t this the first question that and endless opportunities. A platform that supports their quest to appeared in your mind? And I guess, this question will keep identify and realize their latent potential. We help them think resurfacing in your mind every time you see a placement brochure beyond the obvious and see beyond the horizon. We offer them a of a B-School. This question pops up in my mind too; as the head culture that instigates learning. Our pool of talented and of a Business house. And as the head of Jaipuria Institute of experienced mentors act as guiding lights for these thinkers to Management, I try to answer it to myself and to you. direct their energies towards a definite outcome for themselves and for their institute too. Businesses today are treading the most dynamic times ever. You tackle one issue and there are hundred others staring at your face. These are testing times and it’s not the leader who’s put to test here. Only those who can quickly adapt to the situation and act out- of-the-box, sail through. In other words–only the learners sail through. Across all our campuses we acquire talent (students) not on the hollow claims of converting them into leaders. We simply offer them a helping hand. We are no transfiguration experts. 02 HIRE JAIPURIA STUDENTS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT LEADERS. HIRE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE LEARNERS. THINKING, ADAPTIVE, INNOVATIVE LEARNERS. THE BOX THAT IS JAIPURIA.

  5. 5. LEARN Seek the truth, pursue it, reach out. Be ready to head anywhere, as long as it's forward. IMBIBE Absorb, experience, appreciate - as much as you can. Let go of insecurity, start feeling proud of who you are. CHOOSE Weigh your options, prioritize, take your pick, try the new, accept challenges. Understand the power of risk-taking. INNOVATE Think uniquely, traverse new roads, achieve the extraordinary, keep it simple. Discover new routes to success. KNOWLEDGEEDGE WHATTHEYDON’TTEACH ATBUSINESSSCHOOL Creative thinkers and not mere managers is the need of the hour. How is management education responding to this need? Find out. T usiness environments today stay transformed owing to various factors. Rapid advancements in information technology, deepening of globalisation, changes in business practices, cross functionality among others, have changed our paradigms. What the world demands today are not mere managers, but creative thinkers and effective leaders. While the goal of management education is to create leaders, one institute dares tread a different path. Jaipuria Institute of Management, born of a business house celebrates the spirit of learning instead. The path is simple and clear. Learning after all is the genesis of effective leadership. The ability and the freedom to think from all possible angles is the starting point. Jaipuria creates the environment and the curriculum to facilitate active thinking. Active thinkers become aware about their Self as much as the businesses they are a part of. And this very awareness creates the stage for these students to start their learning. Once you ask the right questions, you seek out your possible solutions. You absorb and assimilate, you learn. But learning is never an end in itself. From the learning that you absorb comes a new question, a new thought. The culture at Jaipuria propels students to step out of the box, to think afresh and to discover anew. Innovation becomes a way of life. Students at Jaipuria thrive on risks. And this puts them in centre stage wherever they go. Leadership therefore becomes their next natural step. B The first lesson that a student gets here is that learning is a continuous journey; it goes on for a lifetime. Effective leaders- these students at Jaipuria are hence driven to a path of continuous Self Learning. At Jaipuria Institute, learning remains the core of all pedagogy. And the student Self, at its epicenter. 04
  6. 6. THINK Ask questions, contemplate, explore new avenues. After all, what you think is what you become. LEAD Take charge, blaze a new trail, be a trendsetter. Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things. JAIPURIA’SLOOPOF KNOWLEDGE LEARNING WITH THE MIND. LEADING WITH THE HEART. AT JAIPURIA, EDUCATION IS EMPOWERMENT. THAT IS WHY THE ETHOS HERE IS BUILT AROUND THE STUDENT, THE INDIVIDUAL WHO YEARNS FOR KNOWLEDGE. 05
  7. 7. KNOWLEDGEEDGE CORPORATETOCAMPUS What does a corporate house look for while recruiting its people? P.K.Shrivastava, Head-HR, Cooper Standard India, shares his thoughts with us. Read on. T empower and educate your people is what makes the difference.’ Students on campus must see this great opportunity come their way, and make the most out of “The Times of Constant Flux”. Business has to be provided with talent at all levels. In order to ensure adequate pool of talent, corporates are faced with the following concerns, which I have termed as “Problem Ka Solution.” There will be Problems and Opportunities co-existing in every organisation.

During these times the corporate leaders There is consensus amongst all concerned need to “lead competition”. It is the that effective organisations cannot be built people who can provide this winning edge merely on investments and returns, but for organisations. This idea can be aptly more so on the quality of their workforce, explained in the words of Robert Eaton, its commitment to the goals of the CEO of Chrysler Corporation – ‘the only organisation and the investment made to way we can beat the competition is with attract, train and retain superior human people. That’s the only thing anybody has. resources. Your culture and how you motivate and W This diagram covers all aspects related to successful running of an organisation. You need to introspect and draw your own Action Plan, based on your own situation. Understand the problem your organisation is facing and then look for the best possible solution. 06
  8. 8. Your attitude will determine your altitude of Life. Have a positive attitude towards your seniors, class mates, situations etc. You can improve your attitude when you undertake new experiences. To start with “think globally and act locally.” Read magazines and conceptualise global trends. Effective people are not problem–minded, they are opportunity–minded. Think for various alternatives that can resolve the problem, that may exist today, or that may surface tomorrow. I think, if one avoids criticism, comparison and complaint the attitude will undergo a change. Practice to live your decision & avoid procrastination. ATTITUDE Others will get influenced when they trust you. Practice trust - why should people trust you? Because you exhibit confidence, authenticity and concern for others. Being a good listener helps - listen to people and respond properly. Disagree without being disagreeable. Express your ideas without getting into conflict. In short, if you strive to be a good human being you will stand a better chance of being hired in campus.

  9. 9. WHATTOB! OUTOFTHEBOX 08 With new management institutes mushrooming in the country, are institutes able to differentiate themselves and offer something new? Take a look.
  10. 10. TT here are over 4500 management schools in India today, with over 350,000 management course spots. The rise is steep, over 100% in past 6 years. New B-Schools come up, some survive and a majority is forced to shut shop. Reason? Inability to differentiate; in terms of programmes and quality-value-proposition. Barring a few exceptions, most institutes look and talk the same. Industry experts rue that though even the top B-Schools have produced good managers, they have failed to create leaders of tomorrow. So what affects the ‘education’ in these management institutes? Is it the course losing relevance to industry needs? Or is it, education losing its soul? Jaipuria’s innovative ways are not B MORE restricted to the programmes and Clearly appears to be the mantra this pedagogy. It transcends into the unique institute lives by.

PRATIBHA WASAN (JAIPURIA NOIDA) For Associate Dean and Professor, Dr. Kavita Pathak, the secret of classroom participation is “Engaging with the students and making them curious to learn more.” As an enabler for learning she believes in “providing cues and teasing young minds with stimulating questions”. An MBA and PhD, Dr. Pathak has over 20 years of teaching experience, which includes not only the time spent with Jaipuria Institute, Lucknow but also her four-year teaching and research stint at UQ Business School, University of Queensland, Australia. And what is her message for students? “You are what you think you can be. Challenge the limits and take life as it comes.” She signs off. The spirit of excellence-that is what Dr. Pratibha Wasan brings to her classrooms everyday. Her teaching style, pedagogy and management orientation in the course engages students for learning. “My industry experience helps me establish and deliver the connection between theory and practice. It has given me an insight into corporate functioning, its behaviour, value systems, culture, challenges and realities, which I now pass on to my students.” The academic experience for her is “ongoing, delightful and self- rewarding”. She also adds that Faculty Development Programmes have helped her use interactive, practical course content and pedagogical tools. DR. KAVITA PATHAK (JAIPURIA LUCKNOW ) 31

Indeed, people who you might not have seen as “talent” a year ago might become the people who are needed to make it successful. The first thing Talent Management systems do is identify “Talent” So while the stated intent of Talent Management programmes are based on performance. To do better, they try to look at consistent laudable, the success and therefore the ROI are not very easy to performance over a period of time. However, they often forget that quantify. So what does a HR group do? It should focus on building successful performance is also dependent on a context of a resilience and “learnability” rather than designing prescriptive myriad of enabling factors that might not be available in other programmes. roles/positions even in the same company. Some examples are a manager who lets the performer focus on his strength and takes away the de-energising part of the job and gives it to other team members. When this performer moves to a new role with a more conventional manager the de-energising aspects of the job fall into his lap, and might impact his performance overall. Same is true of the high performer who was successful in a business where the processes were well set who might not perform spectacularly in a business unit that is being set up from scratch. OVER-FOCUS ON TECHNOLOGY THE INABILITY OF HR & BUSINESS TO PREDICT THE FUTURE PERFORMANCE IS SUCCESSFUL IN A CONTEXT T Learnability and resilience instead of mere prescriptive programmes should be the focus of HR for managing talent.
