Strategy and its Influence on Organization Structure 27 March 2015

Strategy is about understanding market and technology evolution and transformation. With this understanding, develop capabilities which enables us to differentiate our products or services better than that of our competitors and create unique value proposition. Competency required for sustaining in the competition is becoming increasingly dynamic and it is very essential for a firm to adapt to the latest changes and reflect the same in their capability to sustain in the competition.

“Achhe din aane waale hain” - the economy is looking up, and things are changing. But what makes India the ideal torchbearer of development in the world will be its people.

Relevance of Independence in Corporate Governance - Role of Independent Directors 05 March 2015

I would like to start by throwing light on the word independence and its importance in corporate governance. The word “Independence” in the Vedic language showers an opportunity provided to an individual or a group to stand up for his/her rights and put forth any kind of pondering points without the fear of resistance. Independence is a very subjective and relative term used in any scenario and talking specifically about corporate governance it forms the backbone of the extravaganza highlighting the actual functioning of the company. People quote always that a law made with certain regulations will play a major impact on the working discipline of any firm, but I say everything goes for a toss if willingness to interpret things in a well versed manner is not present. The same thing applies to corporate governance in every minute way.


Challenges faced by Employers in India 20 February 2015

It is no big secret that India has a huge population and is rich in what we call ‘Human Resource Capital’. With each passing year, lakhs of students finish their studies and become so called ‘Potential Employees’ and hope to be recruited in top companies, to start their career with the hope of fitting in to the Indian corporate sector. As such, the main concern in the minds of most students in India (as well as their parents) is whether they will get a satisfactory job once they are done with their studies, be it in any field like engineering, medicine or management. Thus, in today’s highly challenging and competitive world, these young minds are subjected to a lot of stress and the list of problems they might face is endless and we can go on and on. Unemployment is one of India’s most commonly talked about topic. But, that isn’t what this is about.
