Why Doesn’t Anyone Use The Enterprise Social Network

Why Doesn't Anyone Use The Enterprise Social Networkenterprise

Organizations have bought the latest and the best Enterprise Social Platforms like Chatter, Yammer, SocialCast etc. The usage remains lukewarm to put it mildly. It is not the thriving watering hole that brings everyone together. A place that replicates the heated debates and discussions of the smoke-filled cafes where intellectuals share their ideas; artists display their provocative versions of iconoclastic art and where auteurs discuss their cinematic dreams. Challenge No […]

Book Reviews: The Front Row

Book Reviews: The Front RowThe Front Row, @AnupamaChopra, @AbhijitBhaduri

Who reviews books written by cinema critics? Remember that puzzle, “Suppose the barber shaves everybody in town, except for all of those who shave themselves. Who shaves the barber?” That’s a bit like what I felt like while reviewing The Front Row by Anupama Chopra.

Stay Updated Stay Successful

It helps build humility to say that you need to learn something new and the courage to acknowledge that anyone, even someone junior, could be their teacher. So courage and humility are two great signs of an internally-motivated person.

Skills In A Team

Skills In A TeamTeam Skills, 11 Skills

Collaboration and the ability to work with a group of specialists is making today’s businesses look more and more like what goes into producing a great film or a winning cricket team. Every business needs to be viable, feasible and desirable. Here is my list of 11 skills that makes a team achieve all three objectives.

Analog vs Digital Leadership

Analog vs Digital LeadershipForbes, Digital Mindset, Bill Fischer

Powerful digital engines are everywhere, capable of the continuous production of new knowledge to feed new ideas. But, where are you? Are you still an analog leader in a digital world?

Future Crimes – book review

Future Crimes - book reviewFuture Crimes, Marc Goodman,

If you have a smartphone or have used email or have been on social media sites like Facebook you should read this book. After all “600,000 Facebook accounts are compromised daily”. If you use apps to find your way or shop online or have used free wifi at a coffee shop or a bank, you need to read why it is almost certain that your data has been compromised.

In a world obsessed by size zero and anorexic looking heroines, it takes courage to make a movie with a rather plump looking leading lady. But that’s what makes this story unconventional. Thought provoking while still being light hearted.

PhD for B Schools – do we need them?

Every business is now beginning to become a technology and data business. A sector like e-commerce is expected to grow at 50% in the next five years. The online retailers generate terabytes of data every day and need to build data science capabilities that can help them sell better. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) will continue to have the most opportunities. Women techies should make active plans to build successful careers.

Leadership for a digital enterprise

Leadership for a digital enterpriseexponential

The digital workforce uses technology to buy, sell, rate a product or service and share their ideas with the world. They are opinionated and are unafraid of rating anything from their managers to their increments and HR policies on the net for all to see. They create content for the social media by constantly uploading pictures of their activities, their selfies and whatever is on their mind – everything is just a tap away on the smartphone. No process has a defined beginning and end. Everything is ongoing and continuous and this speed of continuous and open communication leaves the analog colleagues dizzy.

Leap Year Babies and Weddings

Leap Year Babies and WeddingsLeap year, February, Baby

Yes, my friend is what we call a “leaping year baby”. Yes, that’s what they are called. I have never been able to call him that. Leaping year sounds the same as “leaping ear” and feels weird to visualize.
