76th Week@XIMB -

76th Week@XIMB - 18th November to 24th November, 2012

5. Types of decision processes
6. Modifying the brand decision process to create Brand

"A product can be quickly outdated, but a successful brand is timeless." - Stephen King

19th November - Played Beer Game. I have successfully completed online course of Principles of E-Government issued by 'United Nations Public Administration Network (UNPAN)'. E-Government Index of India is 0.383 in comparison to average score of 0.497.

20th November - Strategic quiz.

21st November - We learned about competitive advantage of nations over other.

Mr.R.S.Sodhi, MD, GCMMF (AMUL) delivered a talk on Synchronizing Management Theories with Business Practices

I visited to warehouse of CWC office for SCM presentation.

22nd November - The poor attendance in CEO talks in-spite of the multitude of mails requesting you for active participation. Student Placecom ensuring attendance indicates the interest of the students for the particular organization and high rate of absenteeism jeopardizes our chances of converting them for final placements. There were few people debarred from applying for the respective company for which they did not attend the talk and also from the immediate next company for which application would be floated. The decision was taken after consulting with Faculty placement committee.
There is nothing more sorry scene than to waste an opputunity through reckless attitude.

23rd November - Last visit of BASF is completed today. I sat in boring immersion course of CRM (Customer Relationship Management).

24th November - Congratulations to Sreevidya N Gowda for getting placed in Mlinda Foundation as the Operations Manager! From a placecom's perspective: each person having job by off campus is one less to place.

I was reading a report on Entrepreneurship in India by National Knowledge Commission published in 2008. One line that struck me : 70% of the entrepreneurs interviewed do not have an MBA qualification. This may suggest that an MBA degree is not a sine qua non to become an entrepreneur, though perceptions may be changing. So why should one person go for MBA degree : The 10 Most Under-Rated Reasons Why You Should Get An MBA

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. - GB Shaw
