Common sense

  2. 2. We are performing to the desired level…( ! ? !) So , how do we ensure a future of even greater glory?
  3. 3. Opening hypothesis <ul><li>Common sense isn’t all that common </li></ul>
  4. 4. I need your indulgence. Just for once, to preach. <ul><li>Please humour me for the next 20 minutes </li></ul>
  5. 5. Thirteen (not so) new thoughts (13 is a lucky number !!)
  6. 6. 1. Dashboard your life .. <ul><li>We really do what is in our eye span of 134.5 o </li></ul><ul><li>The rest resides somewhere in the back of our nuts. And we need 360 o to function. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Intent and Goal are very different PLAN is not equal to DELIVERY </li></ul>Never close meetings with an intent statement-only when an action plan is ready, get up and go-and not before .
  8. 8. 3. If you do not know the why ..the purpose…you will not reach the real goal . You just might reach some destination and then wonder why you went there in the first place.
  9. 9. 4. Effort alone is not enough Watch the output God is in the (execution) details ESCALATE/REACH OUT/HANDHOLD
  10. 10. 5. Synergy/cooperation are not just catch words…they work. No one can do it alone . Think…. Why else do we have an organisation !
  11. 11. 6. Think like businessmen. BTW , our u.o.m on the P&L is Rs./Rs./Rs. NOT deliveries, ratios, percentages,etc. etc.
  12. 12. 7. Dr.Murphy IS omnipresent. Provide for slippages. There has always been entropy in the universe. You are only human. SO : TARGET+DELTA=SALVATION
  13. 13. 8. Band-aid management does NOT work . There will always be problems. RCA them and fix them permanently. Remove all carpets !!
  14. 14. 9. The WHAT is the easy part … the HOW is the key . 5W (25%) and 1 H (75%) --- what the devil is this?
  15. 15. 10. In-process measures are very very very critical indeed. Try navigating without a compass. And, by the way, drunks do finally reach home too.
  16. 16. <ul><li>Bureaucracy is a disease. But, oh so reassuring and comforting ….…...TEAR THROUGH……… </li></ul>Guess what! The big-time god we worship is speed-with-quality. Right? Don’t worry about the CYA angle.
  17. 17. 12. See the customer’s perspective - always …. CONTORT, IT’S FUN… It does not take a great deal of genius to see the world only from your own desk.
  18. 18. 13. Walk the talk ... Remember the consumer is not an idiot. And neither is your subordinate .
  19. 19. No new wisdom here … But why, why, is common sense not really all that common.....
  20. 20. THINK ABOUT IT
  21. 21. <ul><li>Headlights @200 m </li></ul><ul><li>Human vision </li></ul><ul><li>Confidence </li></ul><ul><li>Lessons from a street vendor in common sense </li></ul>
