WHAT IS EXPECTED FROM A MANAGERWHAT IS THE STRATEGIC ?HOW IT APPLIES TO KRISHNA ? Creative destruction. Burning of khandava forest. Setting goals.
Mahabharat was the biggest battlefought in ancient India betweenPandavas and Kauravas, and hadeach and every other king/rulerfighting from either of the sides.Duryodhana representing Kauravas and Arjuna representingPandavas, reached at nearly the same time to Krishna forcalling him to fight from their side. Krishna asked them tochoose between him and his complete army. Since he alonewas capable of destroying the world, leave alone the opponent,he would not raise arms and play a non-combatant role. Arjunachoose to have him and Duryodhana was happy to have gainedhis mighty army.
STICK ON A GOALKrishna had three 3 clear cut goals that he followed and achieved 100% targets.Paritrayana sadhunaam ---- welfare for saintsVinashaya Dushkritaam----- Destroy evilDharmasansthapanaay sambhavani yuge yuge ----To establish and strengthen religion in everyera
MOTIVATIONAL SKILLS When Arjun reached the battle field he loose his determination to fight He saw that among the opponents were many of his relatives young and old and that he was going to kill them for the sake of Kingdom. He resisted from fighting and dropped arms. Lord Krishna motivated him by his speech which was later named “BHAGWAT GITA” that’s still read and followed. Arjun recovered and decided to fight.
EFFECTIVE STRATEGIESManager should have skills to build strategies to achieve targetPandavas and Kauravas had soldiers and warriors strength in the ratio of 7:11,Pandavas and Kauravas having 1.53 millions and 2.41 millions. With this count it was clear that the battle could be won only with Effective Strategies.The fact that Pandavas won the battle proves that Krishna was successful not only in building strategies but in implementing them to achieve success.
LEADERSHIP QUALITY When Krishna asked Arjuna and Duryodhana to choose between him and his army, the choice was, in fact, between a Leader and his Resources. While a Good Leader can gain from limited resources, a Bad Leader will loose even with vast resources. Knowing his excellent Leadership Qualities, Arjuna requested Krishna not only to lead the entire mission but to personally lead him by accepting to be his “Saarthi” (Charioteer), guide him and lead him to success.
DIRECTION AND CONTROLLINGControlling an army of 1.53million soldiers and warriors tofight against a bigger army wasnot a easy task. The 1.53 million soldiers were divided in seven divisions, led by a Commander each, further controlled by a Supreme Commander who himself was guided by the Pandavas and Krishna.
Conclusion Agreed that Lord Krishna was ‘God’ and almighty and that he could have done the task himself without involving a single person. But the Battle of Mahabharat had him in a non- combatant role and that the Pandavas won the battle is due to his extra-ordinary Managerial Qualities achieving 100% target. And thus, we can call him the GREATEST MANGER in the World.
