17 Concluding Summary Harvard Steps Wisdom Steps Himalayan Steps
(Rationality) (Reason + Intuition) (Creativity & Spirituality) Head Head + Heart Head + Heart + Consciousness

18 Implications for IIMA: Towards A New Interpretation of IIMA Logo
‘Vidhyaviniyogadivikasa’ (Knowledge –Application- Development) New interpretation: Vidhya, Vinay and Yoga lead to Vikas. This implies three elements viz. Wisdom, Humility and Yoga (ability to achieve balance) lead to Development. Thus, there is a universal message in IIMA logo viz. Development based on Wisdom, Humility and Yoga. Such Development would be Inclusive and Sustainable. Open ended tree in Golden Jubilee Logo is indicative of coming out of constraints created by restrictions and the tree is growing to touch the sky.

19 IIMA Formula for Success
Intuition, Inspiration, Motivation and Action IIMA is unique from others because A (Action) is part of its ethos This definition of IIMA implies, taking new steps through following combination: Harvard Steps + Wisdom Steps + Himalayan Steps In these Steps, Head, Heart and Consciousness find an integration leading to Action. It also implies opening Mind’s Windows, Heart’s Doors and Consciousness Corridors in performing whatever Actions we undertake.
