What are the pain areas of today’s leaders?
According to a global study, the pressure to work faster, the threat caused by institutional knowledge drain and challenges posed by environmental regulations are among the chief concerns. We should start with a vision – what will India be a few years ahead from now and where will we be as a country.
Driving from that, we should figure out something larger than what we conceive of, if we look at current reality with all its constraints. If we want the contribution of manufacturing to become 25% of GDP by 2022, the industry will have to think differently to make this happen. Labour is cheap in India is a common myth. Lot of automation investment is deferred or not done.
When you educate at a young age about the benefits of automation, which is where the gap between automation in India and abroad will get reduced...the gap is too high today. Do we believe that it is possible if we work together in education, skill building and create inspirational solutions, we might build National pride and multiply the overall prospects of this entire group by an order of magnitude?
We all have our individual goals - top-line, bottom line etc. But, when we start looking at something which is having all inclusive growth as the ‘Make in India’ mission, it is our vision in that direction that makes a big difference. It will give us the energy to make this journey. However, if we try to climb up from the pressures of competition, the gravitational force of circumstances will hold us back. This issue is dedicated to the ‘Cause of Collaborative Action’ and ‘The Opportunity to Make a Difference’. Should you wish to contribute your talent, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
