To bridge gap between training and requirements in social environment

TIRUCHI: Educational institutions must adopt Total Quality Management (TQM) principles to bridge the existing gap between training and requirements in social environment, the Vice-Chancellor of Bharathidasan University, M. Ponnavaiko, said on Wednesday.

Inaugurating ‘TIECOONS 2K7’ organised by the Jamal Institute of Management (JIM), Jamal Mohamed College, he said that adherence to TQM principles would bring about a comprehensive change in the quality of education along with the enhancement of teaching standards.

Emphasising on the importance of time management, he said that success in management begins at the level of individual. In accordance with the country’s needs, institutions should produce managers with efficiency to manage available resources to maximise output, he said. Dr. Ponnavaiko received the first copy of ‘The 4th Dimension’ a magazine brought out by the JIM on the occasion.

Presiding over and releasing the magazine, the Principal of Jamal Mohamed College M. Sheik Mohamed said the seventh edition of the meet was meant to serve as a forum for budding managers to unleash their hidden talents and bring out their potential in productive management. India owes to efficient managers its success in economic revival through green revolution, white revolution, and developments on the telecom, IT, space technology and atomic energy fronts, he said, adding that young people need to be trained to adapt to the needs of knowledge-based economy and keep pace with the rapid changes in the world.

The events for the day included Ad-zap, business quiz, paper presentation, communication game, stock war, presentation of global business model and corporate show. Participants comprise management students from 32 institutions in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
