Interview should not be to do with your job.

A person taking the interview represents the whole of the organisation. Now in India especially Bangalore, a person decided to move out of a company is getting different options. He would at least get five offer letters before he conclude to one. Salary, Nature of work, Status of the company, Employee benefits, possibility of exposure to technology and skills, Projects etc are some of the major factors that makes one to decide upon which company to join. But I believe that there is one main factor which actually makes a big impact. And that is the nothing but the person who takes the interview.
Technical people who take the interview shows how technical the company is.People who take HR and the soft skill rounds represents the company and should be having the capability to judge the person in such a way that they understands that if it is worth taking this person. Most of the times when technical interview is taken the task is to check if he would agree to the minimum salary. Hear itself the thing is going wrong. Why do you want someone to be take in a lowest possible salary to which he agrees at that time. Yes, this would certainly help the HR. But we are not taking him for HR but for the Project. Very soon hie would approach the Project and start taking about a better hike. And this would again create tension in the project. And soon he leaves the company. One thing what we forget is that. When you find the right candidate, you are actually not selecting him but showing a demo of your company in front of him so that he selects your company. The person who takes the interview should also feel for the company and take the interview. This could reduce a lot of attrition happening in the corporate world. To make this possible, there needs to be a direct benefit attached. If the person who is selected in the interview is performing good in the appraisals, the person who took his technical interview needs to be also appreciated. A person is staying long in the company needs to be certainly appreciated but at the same time the person who has taken his personal interview needs to be appreciated. In my company we have a concept of having two managers. one is the line manager and the other is staff manager. The line manager is the person to who you report to the the project. Staff manager is responsible for your growth. While taking the interview staff manager or in companies where you are attached to units. a representative who would be responsible for you throughout your carrier in the company should take the interview and see if he/ she is responsible and is worth taking the person to the company. and the person also should be showcasing that what the company is. It’s time to come out of the normal way of recruiting people for just doing your job. Most of the people do things so that their job is done. If asked to recruit people and increase headcount, we also needs to be responsible enough to take people who are going to fill in the gaps of the business coming in and not just to complete the job. People should not be just following the words as said but needs to think why is it said so. And you need to take decisions on your work which is good for your work. else we do not need such designated and educated people to do these jobs. If or job is just to obey orders then we could get people from anywhere. I remember an year before one of my friends sister came to attend the interview as a fresher. The friend of mine who I am referring to joined in the company as a graduate and continuously got good rating and is considered as one of the best employee in the Business unit. He was also awarded with the LORE award once and also got the best programmers award. He is one such person of who client is always happy and have never received any complaint on him from any one. Coming back to his sister. She got 79% in her engineering, and the cut off the company declared was 80%. She was not given a chance to write the exams. My friend requested for giving her a chance to write the entrance exam at least, and if she is proving herself then take her. His request was not considered. Now this in my view is a great mistake. The person who was not even thinking of changing the company, planed to change the company and resigned. he was offered high in another company We had to struggle hard and make lot of options to convince him to stay back. I was referring to this scenario to show how people needs to be flexible and take their own desertions. Now 79% is certainly a high score and will have no difference between a person getting 80% and 79%. Since there is a rule, people did not even think why that rule is made when rejecting her. Well if you would have given her a chance to write the test and if she fails in it, it was a different case. This is one of the actual employee benefits. Now it is also the family of the person who work for the company who cares for you. And this make a real branding which you can not get spending millions of dollars. One of my colleague told me a few days before, the branding that you could not get by givig thousands of rupees as monthly salary, was built in my home when I took home one packet of cashew which was given on Diwali. So start thinking out of the box. It is also the family which helps a person to take decisions.



Here I am forced to remember what Colin Powell said once. “You know the expression "it's easier to get forgiveness than permission?" Well, it's true. Good leaders don't wait for official blessing to try things out. They're prudent, not reckless. But they also realize a fact of life in most organizations: If you ask enough people for permission, you'll inevitably come up against someone who believes his job is to say "no." So the moral is, don't ask. I'm serious. In my own research with colleague Linda Mukai, we found that less effective middle managers endorsed the sentiment, "If I haven't explicitly been told 'yes,' I can't do it," whereas the good ones believed "If I haven't explicitly been told 'no,' I can." There's a world of difference between these two points of view.”

Now the choice is yours. think for the company until you are a part of it.

Some insights into 2G Spectrum Scam

This is an email that I have got. from one of my friends.
Some insights into 2G Spectrum Scam (http://killcorruption.org/ )

Q. What is the 2G Spectrum Scam?
In 2008, the union government awarded pan India licenses and second generation telecom spectrum to 9 companies in 122 circles for offering mobile telephony services. These licenses were awarded in an arbitrary and non-transparent manner for a paltry sum of ` 1658 crores, which was the price discovered in 2001, when the teledensity was very low.

Q. Who are allegedly involved in the scam?
• Telecom Minister A.Raja
• Corporate Houses
• Government Officials
• Corporate Lobbyists
• Media Houses

Q. What is the amount of scam involved?
Based on the subsequent auction of airwaves for third generation (3G) services, which fetched nearly Rs. 63,000 crores, and that for broadband access, which fetched over Rs. 35,700 crores, the notional loss to the exchequer due to under pricing of 2G spectrum was estimated by the CAG to be a whopping Rs. 1,76,000 crores !!
Q. What does Rs 1.76 lakh crore mean to our nation?
• 4 Times the money used to build the golden quadrilateral connecting delhi, mumbai, chennai, kolkata - to improve our road connectivity and trigger economic growth.
• 30 lakh RTC buses - Could be a big boost for our defunct public transport.
• 11 crore buffaloes - Could improve our dairy sector
• 1868 Nagarjunsagar dams - Could vastly improve irrigation sector (No more need for loan waivers)
• 23 Shamshabad airports - Could improve the aviation sector big time.
• 25 Lakh Nursing homes - Could be a big boost of our disastrous health sector (India remains home to one-third of the world's undernourished children)
• 30 Lakhs Schools - Can go a long way in improving our literacy rate - 65%
• 35 Crore Computers - Could establish India as the IT capital of the world
• 504 Fighter Jets - Could strengthen our defense system in a big way.
Q. Can this money be recovered?
Yes. Under Section 23 and 24 of the Indian Contracts Act 1872, a contract becomes void if it is tainted with corruption. The government can cancel the current licenses and recover the lost money by fresh allocation of 2G spectrum through international competitive bidding after laying down transparent eligibility criteria in consultation with TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India).
Q. Did we ever recover such scam money previously?
Yes. In 2007, the Indian Army did not hesitate to scrap a $600 million-worth deal for 197 helicopters with Eurocopter, the world’s largest maker of civil and military helicopters (and a subsidiary of EADS, the European defence and aerospace group), following the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC)’s criticism of the bidding process and illegal use of middlemen, violative of the existing policy of prohibiting middlemen in military deals. The Army subsequently went in for a fresh and open bidding process.

Q. Do we have enough evidence to prove the scam?
There were many events leading to the day when the licenses were given...
• TRAI had recommended auctioning of spectrum at market rates.
• Raja ignored advice of TRAI, Law Ministry, Finance Ministry and even the PMO.
• Licenses issued on a first-come-first-served basis
• Cut-off date for applications advanced by a week
• Rules changed after the game had begun.
• One more clinching evidence is that the bidders were asked to give a bank guarantee of 1600 cr, and the time given to satisfy the clause - 45 mins. Its impossible for even the biggest of the corporate houses to arrange for such a huge money in just 45 mins. But, the successful bidders were able to provide the bank guarantee. If they did not had prior knowledge about the clause, how can they arrange for it? This proves clear favoritism.
Q. What should the government do?
As we discussed before, the immediate steps should be to recover the scam money by canceling the licenses and issue new licenses international competitive bidding. But there should be some long term measures to eradicate the menace of corruption from our country. A JPC or PAC as demanded by the opposition will not do any good .
• Enact a comprehensive anti-corruption law and create an Independent Anti-Corruption Commission (IACC). IACC set up in Hong Kong in 1974 reduced corruption within a few years. When it was first set up, wags referred to the ICAC as “I can accept cash”. However, the ICAC has worked, precisely because it is independent.
• Enact a Windfall Profits Tax law (on the lines of the UK law 1997), which will provide for stiff taxation of windfall profits earned by corporates in the exploitation of natural resources either because of monopoly or a change in the global economic environment. The companies that cornered the 2G spectrum licenses through questionable means and sold them within weeks for astronomical sums should be subjected to the proposed windfall profits tax. Such a law will also help tax the abnormal profits made in the mining and other sectors.
• Enact a False Claims Act (on the lines of the U.S. law). If the exchequer incurs any loss because of fraud or misrepresentation or violation of the due process as determined by an independent, competent authority, the guilty will have to pay a civil penalty equivalent to three to five times the loss sustained. The U.S. Government has collected over $24 billion from corporates under this Act.
Q. How can you help to stop this scam?
There are many ways you can help in recovering this scam..
• Sign online petition to Prime Minister of India (You took the pain to read this mail, spare 30 more secs and this is the least you can do for the future of our country)
• Email to Prime Minister of India ( manmohan@sansad.nic.in This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ; pmosb@nic.in This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )
• Post a card to Prime Minister of India (The Prime Minister of India,
PMO Building, South Block,
Raisina Hill, New Delhi - 110101)
• Send one rupee money order to Prime Minister of India. The Money Order will cost Rs.2.25 (Re.1 + Re.1 as MO fee and Rs.0.25 for the MO form), and has the added advantage of someone in PMO having to acknowledge it.
• Join & Spread awareness about 'Cancel 2G Spectrum Licenses' Campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Orkut communities.
• Send this mail to all your friends, relatives and colleagues.
• Get involved in the various anti-corruption campaigns by any of the NGO within your reach.
After all this, most of you might be thinking that I am just an individual and I am not going to make a difference to the system. But, just recollect some of your history lessons -
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." -- Margaret Mead
There are many things that we cannot do individually or fight against the Government to punish the guilty. But there are some people who have taken their anger to the next level to clean the system and make INDIA a better place.
Let us at least give our supporting hand to the people who are ready to change the system/curb the corruption.
Please forward this mail to as much as INDIANS you know. Atleast you can make someone aware of this!

An year full of fun and learning through Syntillations.

Election rolled out for Syntillations, the club of employees, last year and I nominated myself as a Special Interest Group Administrator(SIG). Kasibatla Bala approached me and said that there is a team which we are forming and if you would like to join in the group. I met the team and though that yes, I would go for itThe election result was declared. Unfortunately Kasibatla Bala did not make it, rest of all the candidates from our group won. I was the first one to be declared won in the election result announcement.

Nandu –President. . I was also approached by Benson and said that Reddy has also made a group and why don’t you join in his group. I said that I have already joined a group. Reddy is from PE-TP, the department I belong to. So even though I went for canvassing with Nandu’s team I voted for Reddy.
Nandu was  the appropriate person to hold the post of the president. He is social dedicated , true and faithful.  Without he being the president for this team there would have been many disputes. It was also not possible to handle so many things. He personally involved in each and every event happened in different departments.
Jagadeesan VP, was happy as this was the first functional Syntillations management committee formed in Chennai. He took care of the complete Chennai Syntillations activities and justified his role he has taken.
Sudheer – Tressure. We were together in the same project for the last five years. It was for him I filled the survey for the Syntillations elections, Since I could not nominate another person, he had to do it from his own PC. Since the survey was opened I nominated myself. He initially was planning to contest  in the election as the president. I told him to contest as the treasurer. He was the only one from Bangalore who stood for this post which is common for both the locations. He was so responsible for the last one year and spend money as if he is spending his own money. Many of the syntillations members had fought with him for not releasing funds on time. His theory is that if you release fund easily they will not spend smartly. He will also follow you until you claim for the funds that you have taken. Such a true person to handle fund. Without he taking care of the funds our team would not have done with these many events.
SIG – Me, Santhosh from Bangalore and Naarayan and Barani from Chennai
Santhosh was my partner in the canvassing as a Special Interest Group Administrator. One day one of my friends told me that there is another SIG candidate Ajay who approached her and asked vote. She said that she told him a big no and said that I need to vote for Joe. When said that there are two votes for SIG. She refused saying that I would only vote once because it gives more weight to Joe. Till them I had not thought of doing single vote. As Adam got the idea of eating the forbidden fruit from Eve, I too got this idea. Hence I did not vote for Santhosh, which I later regretted for. Not only that I have also told one of my colleague to vote only for me. Santhosh had given a right kind of support through out. He was also interested in the social service. Naarayan was another important person in the group who corrected the mistakes and also points out the mistakes with out fail. He is so talented and was an overall contributor in the group. Barani helped Naarayan in the SIG activities and made the clubs in Chennai. When it was taking time in making trekking club in Bangalore he went ahead and started it in Chennai. He was also behind the group 24 frames in Chennai.

Social Service - Niraagulan and Vinutha from Bangalore, Jigassa from Chennai
Social service is one of the most projected side of Syntillations to the rest of Logica. Niraagulan is the person who have contributed in all the departments of Syntillations. There would not be any member in the group who would have not got his help. His expertness in the Microsoft Office Sharepoint Service helped Syntillations to make a beautiful portal. I learned sharepoint with his support while creating the sites of SIG. He is a people’s person and would wanted to be with people. His help and contribution has played an important role in making many of the events successful. His group of friends who were the volunteers for most of the events played the role dedicatedly because of him for the smooth run of the programs. With out them it would not have reached people and also would not have the fresh and young feel. Some of them have got elected themselves to the new Syntillations team this year, and this too is because of Niraagulan. Syntillations helped him in his transformation to a responsible, matured man.
Vinutha is a strongly dedicated girl who would proactively follow up things what ever she does. One of the favorite team member of Nandu. Once she takes the responsibility in doing some thing then she takes the complete ownership. But she would also expect people not to interfere in her activities. She has justified her role as a social service ambassador. She was behind all the social service activities happened in Bangalore. Not only that she had done most of the things but also helped the CSR team of the company to project it to the rest of the Logica. She and Santhosh goes to a blind school and spend time with the people there.
Talent Managers- Thilak and Punitham from Bangalore, Santhosh from Chennai
Thilak is the person behind the curtain most of the big functions that happened. His dreams are big. His knowledge in the Light and sound, and his experience in the event management helped us in doing things easier. His connections in the event management world helped us to get things cheaper. Oscars, Malgudi days were all his dreams. Punitham was more on to the talent hunt in the company.
Sports Ambassidors – Venu and Alex from Bangalore, Beski and Raja from Chennai.
Venu is a nice friend and always supported me in many of my activities. His idea of bringing fitness to the employees, has brought many gyms and fitness centers to people. His different approach of bringing a festival of fitness for the whole week was one of his great successes. Even though I formed a club under SIG for runners, it was he who handled it. He is also a people’s person who has got lot of friends around him. One great quality in him which I noticed is that he never forgets to appreciate.
Alex is a celebrity in the company as he is the person who drives the cricket team. He is one such person who I have seen who is a complete sports person. He is also daring in giving he opinion to anyone. A nice person who loves people and loves the God.
Team was very nice.

I had a big challenge in front of me there was no trail left by my predecessors.
First I decided to spend some time on what all to do with the help of Niraagulan, I learned how to make use of sharepoint.
I made some clubs and was searching for the right people to administrate the club.

Wheels, a blog for the people who love there cars. Sony and Vinu took charge of the club.  This is one of the top 30 blogs in the whole of logica now. It brought free emission test once.
Bikers, a club for motorcyclists, Josin and Aby  administrated the club. Josin took charge of the club and administrated the club he have also made many posts and tips in the club for the encouragement of the members.
Runners., a club for runners it started with midnight marathon and have participated in may marathons Athreia and Reshmi are the Administrators of the club. They not only administrate but also goes for most of the runs in Bangalore.
Ecoriders, this is one of the favorite of my clubs because of the way it is administrated. Ratheesh Menon, a nice adventurous person who has got the fire in him. He not only helped me in making the club but also made me to buy one bicycle. We went for some rides in the Saturdays. He with the help of Mayank organized a workshop for the bicyclers. Took a group of 10 to Wayanad for a two day bicycling with the help of muddy boots. The club is very active and has got lot of members in it.  
Logowood/ 24 Frames:- this club is for the people who like movies this is later renamed to 24 frames. Barani added lot more to it. When Thilak’s dream came true there are now some 10 movies made by the Logica employees in the library. Raju is the administrator of the club.
Quiz people One day Sulfy called me and asked if I could help in forming a nice quiz team in logica through Syntillations. Hence the Quiz team was made. A very talented group of people. Soni and Vivek are the other administrators along with Sulfy in the club. Through this club teams were found to represent Logica in some of the corporate quiz championships. One day I and Nandu approached GBS Bindra, the global innovation director on his view on the club. He agreed to sponsor an ever rolling trophy in his name. It is called Inquizzit. I and Nandu spend around 6 hours in a shop to make the trophy. They have conducted many competitions in the company. The latest of there quiz master is Mustafa, a person who led Tostmasters in logica for many years.
Photologic It already existed in logica but was not with syntillations. Murthi and Krishna both of them have already brought this club to a certain height with around 400 people in the group. We approached them and asked them to come under the umbrella of Syntillations. They were happy on the way I convinced them with the proposals. The club has monthly competitions. There is also a forum where we could post pictures and some one would give feedback on it. Murthy brough his friend Kalyan Verma from National Geographic to take a session which was highly informative.
Trekking Even though this club was made there were lot of hiccups in starting the activity because we could not find right people for administrating the club. Then santhosh took the responsibility and facilitated few trekking. We have also found two young people as the administrators of the club.
Great Patents Club. One of the most beautiful club, We had the idea of making this but had always things which stopped. A starting point was missing. This is when Prabod Sirur came to us saying that he has written a book on multiple intelligence, he said he would like to give a presentation to the people through syntillations. We were happy to hear and invited him to give his presentation in the induction to the new joiners along with Syntillations. Inspired from his presentation, Great Parents Club was formed. The right candidates to administrate the club were also found. Yesh Save and Mukesh Rijhwani. They are bringing this club to heights now.

There were many programs organized by syntillations. Horse riding, Biryaniday, lunch, republic day celebrations, independence day celebrations. Mushtache competition, ethnic wear, IT lab in yemlur school, Talent hunts, Logica Oscars, Sports and games, Blood donation camps. I am proud that I am the one who introduced a mustache completion in Logica which had a huge number of response, where we conducted it along with ethnic day and independence day celebrations.


One big failure was one of the birayni day where the chicken brought was rotten. And people had to leave hungry. A vary sad and tensed day. This is the day we realized that even if people do not appreciate for a good thing that you do, they would not spare you if you are responsible for one mistake happened.
We also celebrated most of the religious and cultural functions. Dillan and Rajesh Taiyil made the Onam a success where I remember Sulfy and Anne was making the floral decoration in the night. With the help of so many people. Dandiya day, Diwali celebration, Ramadan celebration with Biryani was one of the tasteful day, here I can not afford to forget Abdul who is one such person who has got the good heart who really helped our team in many difficulties. Avinash, Swami, Teresa, Joseph Anthony are some of the other people who helped us in the difficult situations.
I also got chance to bring a nice relationship with the yemlur village and Logica. Thanks to Srinivas and his friends who supported us and also JP and his friends for there help.
I would like to thank all my friends who supported us in this tenure including Previn Ravi, Bhupinder, people from Training department, admin team corporate communications for all there support.
The greatest support I got was from my project. I would like to thank Rajesh and Asit for the liberty they gave me in the project so that I had got enough time in working for syntillations. To the last I would ask a sorry to my wife and my child for not spending enough time with them last year. It was not at all possible for me without my wifes support.

Baba Balia, a spiritual leader form orissa.

I personally do not believe in any religion or any of the gods that any religion shows me. But I believe in god, and I also have a strong believe that I am one of those who are the true believers of god. I am not in one of those who believe that god requires money, time, flowers, or loud prayers through a speaker. Having said that I also respect all the relegions and all the believes that people have.
A few days ago I went for a housewarming function were I was introduced to a Baba he is "Pujya Pujaka Baba Baliaji Maharaj" (Tirtol Orissa, Jagannath Dham) is a socio-religious reformer, who spread out the marvelous essence of spiritual power, divinity, abstract devotion, unfathomable wisdom, universal love, sympathy & compassion into the hearts of billions across and Orissa and other remote corners of our country.
My friend Chitharanjan Naik is a devotee of him and brought him from Orissa to Bangalore for his house warmig function. It was nice to know about him. he met people who came for the function and blessed them. I took some of his pictures. Then I thought of reading more about him. It is not unusual in India. India always had lot of spiritual leaders. Some stay local to the society, but some of them are famous across the state sometimes across the nation. There are also spiritual leaders from India who are recognised accross the globe.
The ideology, teachings & messages of SRIMAD BABA BALIA are much appropriate at the present time. He has highest regard, recognition & adoration for all religions, incarnations, great mentors & saints. His mission of life is to work for the harmony among all religions by practicing the ideals of SRIMAD BHAGABAT GEETA.
Srimad Baba’s contribution and dedication to enrich the spiritual and moral values of human being is beyond measure. Srimad Baba’s spiritual discourses in very clear, sweet, meaningful words have brought a revolution in the field of religion. The various theories, principles and methods described in complicated manner in the great epics and religious books like Srimad Bhagabat Geeta, the Ramayan, the Mahabharat, the Veda, Upanishad are explained by Srimad Baba to the common audiences in very logical, intelligible and comprehensive terms for practical application in their day to day life.
In all his spiritual discourses Baba appeals to the audience to make the best of their efforts to promote true love, affection, confidence, compassion, regards and respect among the family members to take up the noble familial, tradition and to strengthen the unbreakable familial bondage which will ultimately turn the family into a ‘BAIKUNTHA’ the abode of the Great Bishnu or in other words the abode of heavenly peace and happiness. Baba points out that a family being the primary unit of a nation, meets with such a pitiable fate that the foundation of the whole nation will be weak and shaky, loosing its solidarity, unity and integrity and at last will grope in the darkness of despair, diffidence, destitution, violence militancy and cold war. When these will spread over the whole world, human race, the best of the creation will be awfully and mercilessly deprived of its stable existence.

OBL feedback @ value lanes

Most of the people had a very pleasant experience with the out bound learning (OBL) conducted individuals have felt that there is no replacement for such programs because of the output they have in their own professional life and in the team. It was full of enjoyment and fun we had there and it was too late when we realized that we have learned lots of things.

Most of us felt that the learning was more stable throughout the programs where we got involved and self realization learning curve was high which we realized after all the fun we had.
o Highest weightage is on the realization that the contribution of each individual is important in the team.
o The teamwork would make things simpler and understanding other team members and accepting them as they are is another learning.
o the practices that need to be followed to come up as a team and deliver the quality output on time. The individual effort that we need to put in for that by being a good team player, proactive, good listener, owning up individual responsibilities, committed towards the project and the work you do.
o The importance of proactive planning before execution of the task and understanding the work up to lower level of granularity which is being supposed to done, can help you to get a quality work on time.
o To follow a process which is already proven and to Learn from past experiences helps in avoiding mistakes. At the same time if there is enough time to do an experiment think out of the box and look for alternate ways.
o How so ever confident we are in the process that we follow it is better to have an alternate way as a backup plan .
o Be transparent to both the ends so that it is easy for them also to have alternate plans and advises
o In critical situations have patience and do not panic, blame but help each others to handle the stress.
o To know each other and to build up a better relationship with each members, understanding the strengths of the individuals at some time also to evaluate some of the members.
o It was brought to light that how some one can be responsible when a responsibility is given, and how he can lead others too.
o A self realization on the weakness and the strengths is an added learning. The importance of asking for help when needed and proactively giving when you realize another needs is a great culture in building a confident and strong team which increases the bounding between the team members.
o The most amazing learning is the knowledge of understanding that how much faith and confidence another person has kept on yourself.
o Listen to others, do not interrupt them and once done provide your open comments. Do not comment for the reason to comment. Give ideas and guide the team if you think you can

The Good Points which we got from the OBL should certainly be taken in to the daily work and the action needs to be taken to improve further
o We were Excellent as a team and should not allow any situation to spoil the team sprit we have. We were open in helping each other this needs to be improved within the team members.
o Better the relationship is the stronger the team is and also the quality of the delivery. This also helped in the personal and professional growth of each individual.
o The opportunity given to take the responsibility was openly taken, which should be improved and there needs to be more and more opportunity and responsibility given to the team.
o One of the greatest strengths we carries was that most of us did not had egos, this needs to be carried forward in the team so that the openness and success follows.
o Smaller or bigger, good or bad the feedback given to on time, helped people to analyze their own experience/faults, giving better results in future.
o Understanding of individuals strength, interest and specialization helped in a better planning this could be taken in real life where they would be doing things of their interest than a job which is assigned.
o If you feel that there is a problem in the system show it then and there and start the process then. Once the process is started we need to agree to the common goal and should not be taking a step back. This could lead to a complete collapsing of the system.
o We have shown great degree of dedication, team work in performing on the job this needs to be brought to the daily work. Show your complete skill/talent. Don’t wait until someone points that.

Most of us felt that there are also some area for improvements this need to be considered and action on these needs to be taken to make the team a better one.
o Building up the personal willingness in giving more importance to the quality of work delivered. It needs to be every individuals responsibility to understand and follow the quality processes.
o Time Estimation is one of the areas which we need to work on. Dividing the tasks and getting individuals involved in understanding from everyone on their task is important. Should not estimate for someone else as he is the one who supposed to do it.
o We have a good knowledge as a individual but not as a team we should have a right way of knowledge sharing to build a strong team. This is possible with improving communication system within team, and discussions on the projects to other team members and to the people who are handling other projects. There could be some person in the team who has done it before or is an expert in the area.
o Losing the temper when you see someone doing things which is in an unexpected way for you is to be reduced. Every individual needs to accept the other person as he is and needs to practice to keep this work. This could be also improved with a better communication and being open to each other. Be true to yourself and be open.
o Patience, if something is not going right, have patience and think for an alternative. Don’t try to deliver it in hurry.
