Lessons from the First Book of Management | Webinar
Press Release | Delhi | 8th June
As Father of Modern Management Peter F. Drucker quoted, “ What gets measured gets managed.”
A revelatory webinar for pharma professionals seeking solutions to the challenges of both their professional and personal lives was hosted by PharmaState Academy, a learning and development platform for the pharmaceutical industry. “Lessons from the First Book of Management,” a live interactive session from PharmaState Academy primarily focused on books and scriptures that can help you find practical solutions to your business and life problems. The principles outlined in these books apply to many aspects of human life, and there is much to be learned from them.
The webinar hosted Chinmay Mitra (Managing Director of C-MARC) and Vivek Hattangadi ( Chief Mentor- PharmaState Academy). Chinmay Mitra is a pioneer in the field of prescription research and has a futuristic outlook. He has transformed the brand management and marketing management landscape in India through C-MARC. He despises transactional marketing and believes that pharma companies can only build brands through scientific research.
“As we love what we do; every day is wonderful.” Chinmay Mitra lives by this motto and encourages others to do the same.
Vivek Hattangadi is a pharma industry veteran with over 48 years of experience. A mentor to many B-school students and novice brand managers in the pharmaceutical industry.
Shazia Sheikh, Project Manager at PharmaState Academy, began the session which welcomed a significant proportion of attendees. Representatives from major pharmaceutical companies were in attendance. Time was extended for another half hour due to frequent acknowledgements from the speaker and participants.
Chinmay Mitra began the session by discussing the first book of management, Shrimad Bhagwad Gita, which enlightens us on all managerial techniques that lead us to a harmonious and blissful state of affairs in place of conflict, tensions, poor productivity, lack of motivation, and so on.

“Commitment to work is important. The desired outcome is secondary. It does not imply that we are not goal-oriented. Achievement is guaranteed if we are sincere and committed. Let us keep in mind that we have a long way to go before we sleep.” rightly stated by Chinmay Mitra, and this has been correctly observed by all participants.
With the direct events of the Q&A round, the webinar was rich with knowledge and lively discourse. The webinar is brightened by a profound conversion, as participants, as well as speakers, took an active role in the discussion on the relevant session topic.
The session concluded by emphasising that “What we do in business is no different than what we do in our personal lives. It is best to keep expectations of desired outcomes separate from the completion of any work. Similarly, an individual must concentrate on accomplishing the task rather than on the results.“
