Delhi Metro has executed projects well in time as all powers were vested with the Managing Director of decision-making and the management principles evolved by 'Metro Man' E Sreedharan, a new book says.
'25 Management Strategies for Delhi Metro's Success: The Sreedharan Way' written by Delhi Metro's Chief Public Relations Officer Anuj Dayal gives the entire credit of the organisation's growth to the principles followed by Sreedharan to infuse a new work environment.
The book gives an overview of the stupendous journey that the new age transport system has had in the national capital in the past 10 years and Sreedharan's principles that made the Delhi Metro stand out from other government organisations.
Integrity of the people involved in building the system, professional competency, target orientation, emphasis on punctuality, cleanliness and safety, crisis management, delegation of powers and speedy decisions are some of the 25 startegies that Dayal says are being followed at Delhi Metro.
"One of the reasons why DMRC was able to execute its work quickly was that all powers of the management board have been vested in the post of Managing Director who has been empowered to take final decisions on all matters," the book says.
The book also chronicles the journey of Metro -- from the concept to construction to the running stage -- and the difficulties faced during the initial years.
Dayal has gone into detail on all 25 strategies and explained how they contributed to the success of the Delhi Metro.
