Valmiki Ramayana is considered as a marvellous epic and the first
written literature in the Indian context. Over the centuries, several authors have
explored various dimensions of Ramayana ranging from philosophy,
spirituality, politics, economics, sociology, culture, literature, language, poetry,
technology and others. However, management does not seem to be a popular
subject of analysis from the Ramayana, although Valmiki Ramayana is
pregnant with several lessons for managers. Therefore, this paper aims to fill
the gap in the literature by exploring the relevance of Valmiki Ramayana for
development of contemporary managers. By employing hermeneutics, a
qualitative methodology, the authors have explored work motivation, dharmic
management, principles of control and vigilance, decision making, humanism
and equanimity from Valmiki Ramayana which provide lessons for enhancing
managerial effectiveness. The prospect of exploring Valmiki Ramayana in other
areas of management such as strategic management, people management, and
others can be considered in the near future.
