Metis Talent Management brand new website goes live

Last fortnight was a joy, as we came to the launch of Metis Talent Management's website. Metis is a Singapore based organisation that advises clients on Talent Management with a primary focus on Talent Development and Organisation Design. Best wishes to team Metis!

The other great thing is how folks at Metis approached this by going in for a full overhaul, including getting a new logo and brand colours. Do leave your comments on what you feel about the website and the logo!!

Coping ICC World Cup 2007 aftermath for India and Pak:Lateral Idea

While the cricket fans of India and Pakistan are smarting over early exits of their national teams , here is a suggestion to BCCI and PCB to utilize an excellent opportunity ahead of us.

Forget the ICC WC 2007. Organize a quickfire India Pakistan ODI series in parallel! Yes!!

Hold five matches in India and five in Pakistan.

Why does this make sense:

1. Cricket fans in the subcontinent would not just be happy, but delighted.Nothing generates more fun than India Pak cricketing encounters.
2.
The advertisers would have a mighty good alternate option. Nothing generates more money than India Pak cricketing encounters.
3. Matches would happen in IST & PST. Late night would be reserved for encounters of the other kind!
4. For BCCI and PCB, there is tons of (more) money to be made.ICC would realize the power of the cricket fans inthe subcontinent. Its TRPs and ad revenues would dip sharply and BCCI and PCB would have their chance to settle scores with ICC. ICC would accept any bargain.
5. Players and the managers of brands they endorse would be delighted too, reasons are so obvious!(Okay if they are not obvious, then let me state - finally their brand ambassadors would be seen winning, for a change)

Stretch your imagination a bit and make Siddhu - Mandira Bedi duo the official commentators and think how cool this would be(or hot, take your pick).

You may feel such a series is impossible(Well, some copyrighter said something like Impossible is Nothing!). Okay, if 'official'(meaning ICC blessed) series is not possible, then let us organise some 'exhibition matches' or Kiran More welfare matches(let us thank him for his services to cricket so that he says goodbye to cricket in all forms- finally!!).
(And now get back to work!!!!)

Why do we need anymore cricket? I think we have been fooled enough and its time for us to realize the same.

Rediscovering Osterwalder's Business Model Canvas

Of late I have found myself very obsessed with Alex Osterwalder's business model canvas. It seems to be all over the place - in workshops, training sessions, CEO talks in B-Schools and in generally every intellectually sounding talk!

Having heard this turn business model at the turn of the century when all sort of logic-defying business ideas were bandied about as unique business models, I had become programmed to turn an instant sceptic whenever this term was used in presentations. Thanks to this refreshing new approach, which appears as smooth as Swiss Chocolate, I found myself forced to look at the 9 blocks of Osterwalder's business model which seem to present a more complete picture. Of late, I have been part of few envisioning exercises myself and found this model very handy, though I do add my own spice to it, such as using colour code in that box which reflects significant innovation and is critical for the value proposition.

Marketing 4.0 by Kotler et al. A great mind expander

For generations of MBA students who have grown up on the staple of the Marketing Management that so lovingly called just 'Kotler', the book, yet another one bearing Kotler's name, brings in a bagful of fresh air.

Marketing 4.0: Moving from Traditional to Digital

If management or business books can be classified as instructional, conceptual, feel good and general read, this book qualifies as all four. Add to that keen observation skills of the authors as well as intellectual intrigue present in the book, the combination of which makes it a must-read for anyone who wants to be informed of the evolutionary directions in marketing.

This book follows (not succeeds) “Marketing 3.0”, published by the same authors(Kotler, Kartajaya and Setiwan) in the year 2010. Perhaps the fact that Kotler is an academician and researcher par-excellence and Kartajaya and Setiwan happen to be practicing marketers, provides this book a unique perspective, one that is neither too academic in nature(a…
