Setting: Faculty of Economics in Ljubljana, April 30th 2015
We would like to thank Dr. Mohanakrishnan Raman for his most interesting lecture: “Transiting from Small to a Big Organisation”.
Dr. Raman explained the audience how the interactions of certain fundamental factors create an organization entity. In order to function effectively, these factors need to be interacting in a balanced manner under the direction of a clear mission goal. Using real-life examples from his own experience he showed us how things such as leadership, discipline, environment and culture are vital aspects to consider when going through a change or expanding phase.
It is almost impossible for an transformation to be successfully completed without considering all these internal and external factors. Dr. Raman told us that organizations often tend to approach problems instinctively, this was later confirmed by showing the audience an interesting exercise. Finally, he assured us that in a ever-changing global environment, change is not something to be afraid of. It is actually a natural phenomenon which should be seen as an essential process of doing business.
