THE CONNOISSEUR’S ORATE Mr. Ram Menen, Divisional SeniorVice President - Cargo, Emirates elaborates on - ‘An Agent of Transformation’

ICFAI Business School enlightens us on -‘The need for a Corporate Guru’


1. What does a corporate guru do when he takes over an organization that needs to be transformed? First, you draw a big picture and look for the right talent at the right time and the right place. Those involved see the big picture developing; they become like the members in an orchestra. Everyone has the right expertise in an orchestra and all of them can play their instruments perfectly, however, the music comes to life when the conductor is in front, keeping everyone in sync; the passion actually comes from the conductor. The question is ‘are you able to build the expertise together, and manage that bigger picture?’
