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!!

Indian idol peaks up

Let me begin with a confession. I have not been a great fan of the idiot box for last fifteen years. My viewing is limited to 10 PM show on Discovery where I have followed the episodes on the latest defence aircraft(They even showed a C130 landing on an aircraft carrier once - it was a one way ticket, the plane had to be dismantled to be taken ashore!) to the giant dams being built. The 9 PM stories of family politics, so keenly followed across India, unfortunately have never caught mine or my wife's attention. In that sense, the prime time in my house is reserved for TV to be left in power off mode.
A little tough nowadays though. has begun to govern the dinner timings in my home. Initially one felt Anu Malik was a little brusque with the II wannabes but the dynamics between the judges and the show hosts Mini Mathur and Hussain have become quite smooth and the entire production is quite, quite slick. The show has reached its peak. Like possibly lakhs of homes across India, names such as Emon, Deepali, Meiyang, Prashant, Ankita Mishra have come to be talked about in my house as if we know them so well.
Interestingly, the programme is in Hindi but has several participants who would perhaps count another great language as their mother tongue.

Enom Chaterjee - Bengali
Meiyang Chang - Chinese
Prashant Tamang - Nepalese
Puja Chhaterjee - Bengali
Richa Aneja - Punjabi ( Possibly)
Smita Adhikari - Bengali

My personal favourites are Enom Chaterjee, Abhishek Kumar and Deepali for the sheer performances these three have consistently belted out so far. They have a very confident way of carrying themselves on the stage and that rocks. And hello, I am closing now. Indian Idol is on now. And Sunidhi Chauhan has set the stage on fire as a guest artist already. I had barely heard her name before. My wife educated me to the fact that Sunidhi herself is the product of another TV show. Now excuse me please.Need to look at the other screen now.

Yes, all you men pledge 'O we watch only discovery' but soon as we women switch to some real entertainment, you don't seem to mind and are glued to that...so flexible you all are in this matter!!

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…
