SHIFTING THE PARADIGMS FROM EXISTENCE TO EXCELLENCE:
A UNIFIED AND HOLISTIC THEORY OF EXISTENCE FOR INDIVIDUALS AS FOR ORGANISATIONS
This book is one of the first attempts in management theory where individual theory and organizational theory are integrated in the same conceptual framework. Every organization, commercial, political or cultural as well as every human person has three indestructible elements: Image, Performance, and Substance. Image is what one is, Performance is what one does and Substance is what one has. If one improves what one is (Values, beliefs, principles Skills, and excellence), he/she improves what he/she does (competencies) and consequently what he/she has resources like finances, network and opportunities. Hence, Excenomics as a new global discipline pinpoints that the strategic long term focus on excellence will be most effective in producing sustainable tangible and intangible results.
EXCENOMICS in addition to proposing an alternative economic model also propounds an alternative model of education

When a child learns that a triangle has three sides, she should be taught that life is a triangle having three sides, the physical, the intellectual and the spiritual. Instead, she is taught the different types of triangles without learning about how it relates to life.
Excenomics is based on the principle of Knowledge in Application (KiA). How does one use what he/she learns in order to advance his/her life and that of others around him/her-this is the thrust of Excenomics. The study of Excenomics would also lead to an enhanced rate of creativity, productivity, and economic development.
In the first fifteen years to twenty five years of an individual’s life, much of the time and energy is spent in accumulating a mass of redundant information. For...
