Partnership for success (Column: Spy's Eye)
In the Age of Knowledge that we live in many old concepts of management of an enterprise including those revolving around leadership, employer-employee relationship and the role of hierarchy in the organisation, have received a severe knock. Among the key determinants of the new norm are the recognition that a leader must rely on knowledge-based decision making and not personal 'charisma' for moving ahead, acceptance of the importance of lateral rather than 'vertical' interactions for improving the output and a realisation that in the competitive environ 'time' had to be regarded as a precious 'resource' -- apart from manpower and funds. In these times, an enterprise will succeed if its leader knew how to bring the best out of all members of the organisation and create an ethos that makes everybody -- high or low in the hierarchy -- feel that they were contributing to its progress. In a word, success today is built on partnership.
