    • Human Resource Management Introduction
    • Paulo Freire
      • Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom , the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.
    • Approaching Human Phenomenon A Methodological Note
    • Approach Learnt from Engineering & Sciences
      • ‘ Problem solving mode’
        • Seeking the solution
        • Looking for a universal answer that will always be correct
        • Seeking techniques that can be repeatedly applied
      • ‘ One dimensional approach’
        • My vantage point is the right view
        • Others are wrong and/ or spoilsports
    • Approach Learnt from Engineering & Sciences (Contd.)
      • Problems are reduced to good/ bad individuals
      • Try to apply numbers / make a problem amenable to quantitative modeling/ computing situation
    • ‘Popular’ Scientific Method
      • Reductionism
        • The larger system to which one is trying to develop understanding should be divided into smaller units and the behaviour of the system should be understood in terms of the behaviour of the units
      • Determinism
        • A scientist should be able to observe the smaller building blocks, like atoms or cells, and develop cause – effect relationships
      • Make generalisable principles
        • Express them precisely through mathematical equations
      • Questioned by 20 th Century Science
    • The Specificities of Human Sciences
      • “ Managers do not solve problems; they manage messes .”
        • Russell L Ackoff
    • Humans are Conscious Beings
      • Conceptualise a situation
      • Understand another person’s context
      • Anticipate future course of events
      • Make deliberate choices
      • Roots of Consciousness
        • Historical background
        • Social context
    • Collective’s Consciousness
      • Individual and collective behaviour are intertwined in complex ways
      • Humans make any social institution
      • Humans individually and collectively can act to change the institution that they are part of and they are making every day
        • Social systems are far more dynamic in comparison to physical systems
    • Emergent Phenomenon
      • More than the sums of its parts
        • Interactions is the key
    • Towards an Alternate Approach for Learning Social Phenomenon
      • A complex grasp of a complex situation
        • The need to understand multiple facets and multiple forces, and be able to contextualise them in social and historical reality
      • Analyse a social reality from multiple vantage points
        • To be able to put oneself in the shoes of multiple others
        • Critical role of assumptions
    • Towards an Alternate Approach… (contd.)
      • Nature of learning is experiential
        • Getting a feel for things
      • Social phenomena are far higher order of unpredictability
        • Tendencies
      • Only through successive approximations can one arrive at the essence
        • Understanding
