Like it or not, as business horizons advance from the known to the unknown in todays world, we need more reliable, recent and useful information to achieve our objectives. During our journey to create useful information from raw data, it is inevitable that we will experience varying levels of ignorance on certain matters, but these should be temporary as we expand our ocean of discovery. So the journey becomes more important than reaching our destination, as we learn to reduce unknowns to known within quicker learning cycles and thereby better equipping ourselves for the future challenge.
So let us consider a simple hypothesis - to survive in the knowledge economy, should recreation and development programmes, adopt revolutionary business management practices or evolve the basics?
Sure, business practices are changing rapidly, but let us also remember that business change is essentially an extension of what is already known and driven towards unknown horizons. It is also given that existing knowledge will continue to evolve and change in response to strategic and competitive factors, providing creative strategic stretch as business strategy are navigated from the known to the unknown.
The present day managers have learnt to live and do business in the era of uncertainty and for that purpose they have to be guided in a systematic approach for such change and management of such change.
At this juncture, our journey has to start and professionals like the undersigned teaming up with academicians along with other distinguished people in different areas have decided to expand our ocean of discovery and result is the formation of RECREATION CENTRE OF INDIAN ACHIEVERS' FORUM.
