IIM Kolkata is imparting different programmes for managers to enhance their core skills in different areas. Though these are the basic traits which very often has been used by the different employers to implement in their areas to maximise their productions, of late it has been felt that there should be some specialised training in these areas so as to be conversant with some specific tools to tackle delicate situations. The managers would need some specific training to strengthen their basic solving problems in the different domains where they are receiving training to enhance their effectiveness.
