To churn out the best quality humanware that befits the industry, academia need to centrifuge with industry. Academia establishes theories, Industry propagates practices. To ingrain sound theory and contemporary practices in the students , education cannot be restricted to the four walls of classroom. Either students go to the industry or the industry comes to the students. At Acropolis (North Campus) we practice both in the form of industrial visits and expert talk.
An expert talk was organized on ‘Practices in Operations Management ’ for the MBA students by Prof Juhi Kamakoty, under the aegis of Kaizen Club. The resource person for the event was Ms Manish Jain , COO ITL Industries Limited. Mr Manish Jain , a production engineer and SCM graduates gave an overview of operations management practices on the shopfloor. He pitched the difference between theory and practices, reinstated the need to develop applicability skills in the students. The guest speaker emphasized that theoretical clarity is a pre requisite to good performance at job. In operations management it becomes all the more necessary to have sound concepts due to the vastness and variability inherent in the subject. Finally he impressed on developing soft skills in the students to be successful in life ahead. Words like hard work, diligence, persuasiveness may sound hackneyed but still they are the only way to success.
The session was interesting and engrossing. The expert talk eventually ended opening up new horizons for the students.
