But, not so much otherwise. When you see a broken process, problem lies mostly with focus and priorities; not with their ability (technological or managerial) to manage processes.
Systems Today, Culture Tomorrow. Don’t Tweak!
Posted by Ashish Bhagwat in Business, Human Behavior, Leadership, Management on June 15, 2010
Not all organizations may realize that some of the tweaks in policies and systems actually end up as the key determinant of the longer term direction that “organizational culture” takes.

What’s in a Shopping Bag?
Posted by Ashish Bhagwat in Business, Human Behavior, Leadership, Management, Marketing on April 28, 2010
Post the ban on plastic shopping bags, many retailers have resorted to selling bags made of alternative materials. What they do not realize is that a decision to not offer it for free or for an amount of sale hurts their business more than they realize! Huge price to pay for few thousand bucks on shopping bags.
