Happy New Year!
Please refer to our previous blog, Blog No. 34, in which we mentioned few of the great opportunities that are likely to unravel themselves in 2015. Let’s remember that a great opportunity is like a catch in the game of cricket…It helps only if a player takes it!
Yes, we need to grab all the great opportunities in the year 2015… We are already on the track of preparing ourselves for them…we believe!
In our previous blog, Blog No. 34, we discussed the fourth action item (listed in our Blog No. 29, dated as 29th October 2014) – to set up a process for periodic training of faculty apart from entry-level training.
Let’s think together on the fifth action item today – to initiate and oversee Technical Developments for meeting “below-the-horizon” requirements.
We see up to the horizon. But then there are things that exist “below the horizon”, waiting to catch our attention as we move forward.
We believe, we are moving forward…towards things that are not visible at this moment…
Let us question ourselves – Why do we need to initiate and oversee Technical Developments “now”? Well, the things that lie “below the horizon” could be of two categories – (i) that we can handle at our current expertise level (ii) that will require us to build up certain new expertise. We need to initiate and oversee Technical Developments for (ii).
There is an immediate challenge, though – How to know of things “below the horizon”? It will require us to be in constant touch with the originators of the requirements, i.e. OEMS – to be in sync with the new requirements / challenges that they see for themselves! We could also look for such requirements / challenges proactively by analyzing the shortcomings of what they offer now, as well as studying trends in market requirements.
Each new Technical Development initiative needs to be taken up in a planned way – much like a Project – looking for as much clarity as possible on what-to-do, how-to-do, and who-to-do – and, of course, with a dare-devil attitude to be motivated by the thrill of a success without being bogged down by the difficulties that may crop up as go along..
Please share your thoughts – We’ll wait for them as usual…
