Making People Extraordinary

At the Firebird Institute Of Research In Management


FIREBIRD Institute of Research in Management Creation of Corporate Leaders



Business & Industry function in a complex and fast changing world that is set with lot of challenges. The fast changing technological environment in the last three decades outshines achievements made in the previous three centuries. The very dynamic business environment has accelerated the life cycles of products, services, and companies to the extent that the market leadership position changes quickly.

The only crucial resource that can make a difference in the contemporary business environment is the Human Resource. No organisation can survive in the absence of efficient human resources who are trained to expand the horizon, trained to lead, and trained to be objective, innovative & responsible. Firebird Institute of Research in Management has taken up the mission of creating the right kind of human resources for the contemporary business & industry.


It is indeed a great pleasure to talk about the vision behind Firebird Institute of Research in Management – a unique centre for thought leadership in corporate management. Having actively participated in the industry-academia discussions over the last couple of decades, it is my firm belief that Executive Education Programmes at all levels can be created with the highest excellence only when structured and facilitated by industry veterans who are personally experienced in what they articulate.

It is also my belief that active engagement with industry in the form of original research, and Executive Education Programmes is essential for Firebird to maintain thought leadership. This in turn would benefit industry through transformational training, coaching, mentoring, and other instruments of leadership development.
