Shivaji Maharaj & Management
Shivaji and Management

In his short life of five decades, Shivaji Maharaj created history to be remembered for more than hundreds of years and beyond. Shivaji Maharaj’s struggle against the ruling Mughals was not a “Hindu – Muslim” battle, it was a battle of survival, it was a battle for respect and a battle to safeguard his homeland. He will forever be remembered as a pioneer of “Swarajya” which coheres to the modern concept of a secular state with no castism or communalism.
Often when we speak of his greatness, his face as a ruler, a fighter or a warrior surfaces in our memories but what also needs to be learnt, comprehended and remembered is his efficiency as an able administrator with the right management policies in place that made him accomplish what he had set for. What esteemed management theoreticians like Henry Fayol and F.W Taylor laid down as their “Principles of Management” in the eighteenth century were practically executed years ago by this remarkable Maratha King – Raja Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
This blog will feature stories and articles based on the great king’s life highlighting the aspects of management that he incorporated in his rule.
His fair administration despising discrimination, ahead of time thinking, supporting business and trade and formulating befitting policies for the traders, establishing the cabinet system much in line with what is followed in today’s political era as well and military and war tactics make the modern pundits thus refer to him as “Shivaji – The Management Guru”. His Administration skills, rational decision making, communication skills, innovations, project management with a proper sequence to activities and just & proper judgments with patience are the few skills that made him an extraordinary administrator.
