Managing Development for Future: A Study in Transition and Change Management (In 2 Volumes)

Satish C. Seth (Editor)
Synopsis This encyclopaedic book captures and collates the transition in the thinking about new education, new technology, new management approaches and futures consciousness during the last two and a half decades of the 20 century India. It describes with what mind-set and how our decision makers, scientists and thinkers accepted or rejected changes. Also, how during these decades a major movement of futurology (futures studies) and future consciousness emerged and impacted systems in the public and private domains and how, the author played a significant role in furthering the Indian futurology movement through a futuristic network. It further records how the future oriented research and thought grew and futures studies got institutionalized in the Indian universities and in some of its school systems. The questions raised in this set of collected writings in the words of Dr. Seth is simply this: do all Indian systems that cater to the spectrum of basic needs of India have looked enough in an anticipatory mode? Have these systems developed alternate scenarios of development to accommodate future needs and demands of over a billion Indians? Do our administration, planning, process and thinking there of have a good grip, inaccessing the emerging demand of the future—and at all levels of management in all sectors? On how to manage the new goals of change? Dr. Seth, thus argues that genuine development has to be seen as a scientific exercise of future scanning and anticipatory management.
