The PGDM first-year students at Jaipuria School of Business (JSB) got an opportunity to attend a guest talk by Dr. Babu Lal on 18th September 2018 in the Dr. Rajaram Jaipuria Hall of Inspiration. The topic for the session was “Organizational Behavior in the Present Era”. Dr. Babu Lal successfully headed Learning & Development function of Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) including the Human Resource Development Institute (HRDI), NOIDA of BHEL as Executive Director (Corporate Learning & development). He is Doctorate from IIT-Delhi, M.TECH from IIT-Delhi and a graduate from MNIT Jaipur.

The speaker very wonderfully delineated the basic nuances and changes in the Organizational Behavior in the current times. He cited various live examples to elaborate and complement his point. The organizations today, have to be dynamic and have to adapt to change very quickly or else those would become obsolete in no time. He, further, emphasized the fact that talent would always be considered the most important aspect and today’s economy too is a talent-based economy. He concluded his session with two very intriguing quotes, “Consume less, be efficient and be sensitive” and “develop the habit of looking before obvious.” The lecture was very interactive and informative.
