In his address, Bhatta said that with almost all the big global players like Arcelor Mittal having set foot firmly in India and our competitors are expanding very rapidly, the domestic steel industry is in the cusp of momentous change. A lot of consolidation is taking place in the steel industry. For SAIL to move into the big league, we need agility and adaptability to continue the learning momentum. Business challenges, particularly disruptions demand decision-making without procrastination.
While some of the MODEX units in Bhilai had been commissioned very well, the challenge for the leadership in the new units is to extract maximum out of the installed modern systems like Level-II automation, he said. Highlighting the challenges being faced by existing establishment units like Rail & Strl Mill, Bhatta spelt out certain options for the Mill to adapt its product mix.
Addressing the participants, Faculty for the HR programme, Dr SN Singh said that the topics being covered by him will open up new paradigms of self-learning and discovery which will help participants discharge their leadership roles with perfection.
