73rd Week@XIMB

73rd Week@XIMB - 28th October to 03rd November, 2012

28th October - See a heart moving documentary Dilli'. It is a multiple-award winning documentary that has played in over 80 international film festivals across North America, South America, Africa, Europe and Asia.

29th October - Mid term has been taking place in this span of time.

Cracking the rural code and Rural consumption boom are two articles for an insight of rural markets.

30th October - SCM quiz was there.

31st October - There was case discussion on Barilla Spa. While learning about pasta in case study, I reached a conclusion that consumption pattern of essential commodities like wheat and rice can't change but only purchase pattern. I learnt that in long run, stability in sales figure can be offered without giving any short term promotions. Promotion and marketing is tow different activity as per prof in supply chain class. To see the effect of promotion, check the sales data of two quarters before and after the peak promotion season of previous 3-5 years. That will help in fair impact assessment of promotion offers.

01st November - We studied in the case study how Honda entered and gained dominance of the USA motorcycle industry in STM class.

MART has initiated the knowledge series as part of its commitment to disseminate knowledge among larger stakeholders since 2009. The list of knowledge series documents given by MART is here.

02nd November - Xpressions is the annual B-School fest organised by the student community of XIMB, in their endeavor to foster interactions with the corporate world and other B-Schools.

Vinayak Veerakesavan and Binayak Acharya managed to get a special mention award in the Sitaramrao Case Study Competition this year. Narrowly missed the top three. They were working on Manglajodi Eco Tourism. Great Work guys !!!

I applied in IFMR and mine CV was selected for first round. Knowledge of econometrics and qualitative tool was must for this profile. I studied a little about Randomized Controlled Trials (Research Paper)and Impact Assessment (148 Page PDF).

03rd November - I got rejected in IFMR after interview. There were rejection in past weeks in CEAT Campus Connect Contest and Social Entrepreneurship contest. In order to succeed, one must be given a chance to fail. I am going through that phase of failures. Short term success gives me that confirmation to keep doing the hard work and keep trying to move forward. Faith in oneself for cracking big shot is never enough. Recently, I have began to doubt on my capabilities and talent. Still, I respect the journey and accept failure. I am looking for a nice break away from hard luck. I am off for the rest.
