Inspired by Tata Steel’s “Window of the World” programme, Tata Business Excellence Group (formerly TQMS) had started a platform called “SKIL-Sky is the Limit” for senior school children at Jamshedpur under its Education Excellence Programme (TEEP). The objective of this initiative is to enable students to interact with accomplished personalities and derive inspiration from them. Earlier Dr. Kalam had interacted with children. In 2015, there was a lively question answer session with Dr. Radhakrishnan (ISRO chief). In August 2015, Dr Jamshed J Irani, former Managing Director Tata Steel and Mr. T V Narendran Managing Director, Tata Steel and South East Asia, had a dialogue with students on the theme ‘Leadership Lessons’. The children and school communities have highly appreciated these interactions, as children gets to see and interact with accomplished people and derive inspiration.
