Everyone's growth depends on the conditions created by the Organization. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 2

These new ways lead to new ideas and distinct insights.

The quality of the work and the quality of the worker are inseparable. Become what you are doing, rather than someone who just works. Work done in true spirit is meditation. The Mother dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 8

Sometimes, we do not have business problems, we have people problems. When we solve our people problems, our business problems are substantially resolved. Shiv Khera Rudeness is the weak man’s imitation of strength. Eric Hoffer dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 12
