And I saw the magic happen

Sunday morning, breakfast at Candies with two batchmates from IIMA (let’s call them A&B*). It’s been less than 3 months since they joined their jobs out of college and we were obviously talking about work, among other things Me: So, A, what kind of products does X (the place where A works) deal with?

As an example – Inter-Cluster … Continue reading

IIM Ahmedabad Lesson #1: Priority

Before most students jump to apply accounting formulae or decision making trees of even statistical models as a conditioned response, we need to step back – the problem is not optimization – it is PRIORITIZATION! Slot 4 is finally here, and it has brought ample time to ponder about life, the universe and everything …and … Continue reading
