Resolving Management Glitches by Thiruvalluvar Tactics
This paper explains the dimension of business ethics from ancient Indian times and methods to solve the business problems by applying the concepts from Thirukkural. The Thirukkuralis a well-known treatise on ethics which was written by Thiruvallavar in the second century BC. It is considered to be the first work which covers ethics at all departments in Indian (Tamil) literature. In presenting the business ethics from the Thirukkural, the authors employed hermeneutics, a qualitative methodology which is the interpretation of ancient or classical literatures. The findings reveal that Thirukkuraladvocates a consciousness and a spirit-centered approach to the subject of business ethics based on eternal values and moral principles that should govern the conduct of business leaders. The prospect of highlighting the Thirukkuralin other areas like leadership can be considered for the near future.
