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!!

Blasts in Hyderabad - What a shame

I am breaking by blogging silence (hiatius, perhaps?) by doing what all sane minded folks should do. Let's begin by saying that the Saturday blasts in Hyderabad and reported discovery of other terror devices out to be condemned in the highest terms. You do not get a good feel when anyone dies or gets hurt, least of all, when you learn that innocent folks who are enjoying an outdoor evening, including kids, failed to return home, because someone blasted a bomb.

The bombs would certainly not asked for anyone's religion, ideology, age or profession before hitting them and that is the whole tragedy. While law enforcement is surely going to nail these faceless terrorists in due course, it is only a resolute public opinion that would perhaps deter such attacks.

My humble homage to all those who left us on Saturday, and remembrance to all those who have elsewhere died in terror violence in the past, either as innocent victims, or those who died fighting the terrorists, such as the security personnel on duty who defended the Indian Parliament House from the terrorist attack.

Good that you have raised an issue, most Indians prefer to remember for not more than a day or two.We have forgotten many deaths after paying homages( I am not belittling your effort anyway)and get back to 9-5 jobs.We always try to imitate West, but most of time we end up aping the wrong things or not so important things.Indians do not mind few deaths here and there, whereas UK and US fight for each casualty(sometimes they find time to reach Afghanistan and Iraq too).Perhaps this tendency of cheap lives in our psyche is not new.We fought wars in the past and many who fought and got martyred were remembered more than who won the war.Coming back to more recent era, I came to know through a national daily proudly disclosing that India is a country with second highest terror affected deaths.In a country of more than a billion, one life is like a drop in an ocean, but can we think of an ocean without drops.This death will again be forgotten, because this 'ocean' might have got one more 'drop' somewhere.Lets not forget that the people who lost their loved ones will not get them back.

Perhaps our PM is busy more with issues, he thinks is more important, leaving these questions unanswered.Govt cleans itself by starting inquiry(which never ends or even if it does,culprits are not caught and even if they are caught, they are not prosecuted)and uses our own money to pay some compensation, sometimes not even enough to perform last rites.

LIVES WILL ALWAYS BE CHEAP IF YOU, ME AND OTHERS ONLY WHO WRITE BLOGS IN THE NIGHT AND RUSH TO OFFFICE IN THE MORNING, CONTINUE DOING SO.IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN LETS NOT CRIB, LETS NOT PAY HOMAGE BECAUSE IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN OR KEEP THE SAME DRAFT READY SO THAT IT CAN BE RE-USED . WE HAVE MADE OUR LIVES CHEAP BY MORTGAGING IT TO GOVT OF INDIA, WHO CANNOT KEEP ITS OWN HOUSE(PARLIAMENT)SAFE.

Law will take its own course, and so will an out-law.Now even news of deaths do not come with exclamation mark.

Bhagwan sabki aatma ko shanti de!

LIFE BEWARE,FOR DEATH IS SURE.

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…
