Learning for Nurturing Excellence

Introduction

“As the level of business consciousness enhances it will be no more the survival of the fittest but the survival of the wisest.” (Sampath J M)

In an era filled with unlimited information and knowledge, it becomes very important for an individual to be able to assimilate the information and be able to integrate the same for meaningful purposes. Unfortunately, learning seems to be misunderstood with accumulation of knowledge rather than understanding of knowledge. In today's dynamic world, it becomes very essential to foster the ability to understand and integrate the learning's into one's day-to-day life. This would lead to higher level of contribution from each individual towards the organizational goals. In a competitive environment where there is a constant pressure on enhancing performance in any role an individual plays. In today's corporate world where `Producing higher output with Lower Investment to meet the needs of the Customer' seems to be the name of the game, there is a need for more individuals who are wise than knowledgeable. If this game has to be played well, every individual has to work towards adding value to whatever he/she does in the role one plays in the organization. One of the prerequisites for an individual to be able to add value is the ability to be a learner all through.
