The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad is hosting a group of nine ministers from the state of Jharkhand as they take part in management and leadership lessons to deliver on pre-poll promises. The group consists for ministers from different departments of the state government.
“We make many promises ahead of elections. But, we have to set priorities after coming to power as the resources are limited,” CP Singh, urban development and housing minister, said adding that this would help the ministers learn new things and bring forward effective policies to help the state.

The course— ‘Management and Leadership for Good Governance’— is a three-day event involving interactive lessons by IIMA faculty on ethics, education, cooperative movement, healthcare and public-private partnerships. The programme also includes cooperative structure for benefiting people at grassroots, management control systems to ensure effective implementation of government programmes and driving behaviour and actions in Government.
“Earlier, the people never had any expectations from the state government. But now they are expecting us to do some sort of magic. Such a demand is obvious because the BJP is in power in the state as well as at the Centre,” Singh said. Read | IIM-A honours its IAS alumni, five other achievers, click here
