Kiran Karnik's departure from Nasscom is a shock

Kiran Karnik, the venerable President of Nasscom is all set to leave, Economic Times, reports. Nasscom is the premier coalition of Indian IT and BPO companies and apart from lobbying and awareness building about IT and BPO, Nasscom has been playing an active role in envisioning future business opportunites in IT & BPO space. This news comes the same day when Infosys(INFY) announced Q4 results and several others are all set to come out with their Q4 numbers in the next few days.
Nasscom's previous president was Dewang Mehta, who established Nasscom's name to what it currently is. Kiran's tenure was marked by days in which IT companies have come across stringent non-tariff barriers such as visa quotas, and outsourcing becoming a negetive term in the west, and other countries having earned the 'emerging destination' label.Whoever joins next, will have quite a challenge on his hands.

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…

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.
