New Dimensions of Cooperative Management


SKU: 979aaa1271e6 Category:

I am glad that the second edition of this book is coming out in response to the demand. While the broad structure remains the same, every care has been taken to up-date the information and data in crucial areas in the Indian Cooperative sector. Pace of development has been truly fast and issues are getting complex, both internally and environmentally. This dynamics is most welcome. Therefore some new have been dropped in the context of new developments. (However, this pruning has been very marginal as could be comparison to the old edition.)

The additional feature of this edition is inclusion of same seven cases to cooperatives management, covering such management area as project formulation decisions, board-exective relations, managers on deputation, public sector and private coordination; etc., etc. Since management practice must in all possible directions conform to the principle universally accepted, it was thought proper to include these cases as exercise feature of the revised of the revised and enlarged edition.
