19. Case Study :
Scientific Research Corporation
 A professor in management form one of the
leading institutes of management was invited to
lead a seminar for the top 50 managers on
Scientific Research Corporation (SRC). This
seminar was of great significance because the SRC
was spending about Rs. 5.5 crores per year on its
space programs.
 In the course of the seminar, when professor was
warming to his subject and giving a discourse on
how important management theory was and the
various techniques for improving the quality of
management, a distinguished looking gentleman
(who was unknown to the speaker but was a
leading scientist at the SRC) rose from his seat
and said :
 ‘‘Sir, we are very interested in your discourse
which verily has a great deal of intellectual
content in it. But, for your benefit and for the
benefit of all of us gathered here, I would like to
say that, while management may apply to
Hindustan Lever, Delhi Cloth Mills, Associated
Cements, and even to our government agencies
like the Indian Revenue Service, it does not apply
here. We are scientists and researchers, and we do
not need or want management’’.
 The professor was understandably quite taken
aback by this and proceeded to illustrate why
scientists also needed management.
 Questions :
 (a) Suppose that you were the professor leading
the seminar, what would you have said at this
 (b) Can you explain why such an intelligent top
scientist would have made such a statement?
