Prof NS Ramaswamy

Prof NS Ramaswamy, the founder-director of Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIM-B) Padma Bhushan passed away on Monday evening. He was 87. He is survived by his wife, a son and daughter and three grand-daughters and a grandson. After retirement, he founded CARTMAN in 1983 to promote appropriate technology.

He brought new dimensions to Management while he was Professor of Management in the Bombay University, Director of NITIE at Bombay and founder Director of IIM, Bangalore and was correctly known as the Bhishmacarya of the Management Movement in India. Prof. Ramaswamy was the man  to take management science to sectors other than business, such as Transport, Power, Communications, Government Systems, Rural Development, Education, Health, Non-organized Sector, etc. He conducted HRD programmes for Municipal employees in Mumbai and Bangalore in order to improve their productivity and service consciousness.

During his campaign, he worked for the improvement of Bullock carts and slaughter system in order to increase productivity and to reduce animal suffering, about which he is known all over the world as Cartman. Besides conventional Management thinking, he introduced additional dimensions, such as ethics, morals, values, culture, philosophy and spirituality, on which he conducted HRD programmes all over the country and abroad.

Prof. Ramaswamy believed that Multi-national Companies and well run Indian Companies, employing a mere 5 million, are already doing well, while the Governmental sector, employing 22 m, does not have Management systems and culture, which is responsible for its poor performance, corruption and lack of concern for people and progress.
