Union Minister of State for Power and Coal Piyush Goyal on Saturday said the country had come to a situation of assured supply of energy and even surplus, from a situation of perpetual shortage, due to a “decisive leadership and timely decisions”. “Root cause analysis of any complaint, forging strong partnerships with stakeholders and prioritising are management principles that have helped me and, in the process, policy amendments have also been made,” he said.
Watch what else is making news:
Goyal, who listed and demonstrated various apps developed by the Power Ministry for the benefit of the citizens, said, “Put everything in the public domain, why should there be an RTI?”
He was sharing his thoughts on ‘Energize and Transform -the leadership mantra for a mature institution’, at the two-day ‘IIMBue 2016’, the second edition of the global leadership summit organized by the Alumni Association of IIM Bangalore here.
Dwelling on innovative financing such as reverse bidding for projects as a smart way of saving public money, he said, “by adopting such principles, I have been able to reignite the power and coal sector,” an IIMB release quoted him as saying.
“Transformation is possible in every walk of life. As thought leaders, ask yourself are you leaving behind a legacy or will you be a have-been,” the MoS said. He described his own journey in the power sector as a journey of disruption and change, saying management principles taught in schools such as IIMB, where he had done a short programme, helped him bring in positive results in the ministry.
Professor R Srinivasan, Director Incharge of IIM B spoke about the recent accomplishments and rankings of the institute and said, “the world sees us through our alumni. Our pillars of strength are our accomplished faculty, committed students and a strong alumni network”.
