VISAKHAPATNAM: Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) Chairman and Managing Director P.K. Bishnoi has asked the technocrats and management personnel to be proactive in learning and share it with others and contribute their best to the innovation and creativity and as ‘making complicated things simpler was creativity.’
Addressing a two-day conference of the Indian National Suggestion Schemes’ Association (INSSAN) that began in the city on Friday, he said only the combined brain power with creativity could meet the challenges of the industry and cut-throat competitions. In today’s knowledge economy, employees’ involvement and their empowerment had become the success mantra for any organisation. Quality circles and suggestion schemes had been providing wonderful opportunity to promote responsibility and complete belongingness among the employees.
Tata Sons Director Jamshed J. Irani said modernisation of employees’ mind was the most important for the growth of any organisation. Unless there is modernisation of mind (knowing the latest) there is no use of having modern equipment in the industry. “It is like having a good hardware without having the appropriate software,” he said, adding that though one would never reach perfection, there was no harm in trying for it. He said the trend now was to have “new wine in old bottles” (read young and energetic employees). Having a leading edge technology; world class process; bench mark in implementation; good HR process; recognition to core strength; ruthless in cost cutting; selection of best relevant technology; compression of project implementation time; and delight of customer were some of the objectives of Tata group which helped in the company’s growth, he said.
INSSAN president Deepak Sahani, and VSP DGM (Marketing Services) G. Kanakayya participated.
