Bridge the Gap in Society : Start where others end !!

July 9, 2022 Published by Leave your thoughts

To build a , company,a big one at that,over 25 years,from a green field you go thru,each and every aspect of business and corporate growth,if you keep pegging yourself at it,inspite of several disappointments along the way. My story is similar.I have had plenty of shocks,ups and downs,successes,huge failures,and all along the way,I was always convinced that my product and services,will make a difference to my clients and society at large once it stat reaching them in adwquate numbers.So,keep pegging.There were numner of days in my life,when I felt that it will remain unfulfilled.Might as well give up.There were also days,when I felt encouraged to keep going.

Life of an entrepreneur is never easy.People’s memory also is shortlived.So, there is a need to share.I started writing blogs precisely for this reason.These are my personal thoughts.This is what is going thru’ my mind now.This is how,I want to deal with it,and take it forward.All these are key stories to tell.

I have been misunderstood several times,in my life.By my family,colleagues,business associates and friends.Because mostly they either found what I was saying or doing is frivolous,will never happen,or,it could at best be my fantasy.But to me,they were always REAL. I could see them in front of my eyes,and I could see how,it can make a difference to their lives. Once the solution is found,it needs to be processed,otherwise it will remain for a select few. These are very  few instances where the lack of belief is predominant in the eyes of the consumer,as they dont believe it is possible. So,you have to then also design and define the process clearly,demonstrating the innovative ness.So, now RnD comes in.So, now it is INNOVATION.So,when I defined the concept of Software Finishing School(SFS),I had to define the process. So, the training in SFS follows the following steps :

ACQUISITION………………………ABSORB…………………….MANAGE……………………..PERFORM

Once you do these 4 steps,there is no way,you will not adequate knowledge to perform.So,I sat with my team and told them,can you incorporate these  4 steps within the training program,so that my students after the program make some meaningful contribution to the society. Pickup any software language,and see/check after the training program, can the student work on these 4 aspects ? If he does,he is basically ready for the Industry/Corporate. Where did the source of innovation come from ?  The entrepreneur in me had triggered that thought. Most of the  training which was imparted those days,did  not make the student Manage and Perform on the software.At best they simply had Acquired the knowledge.But if they cant Manage & Perform,it doesnt help the business. Right ? So, by putting these two aspects in the training program,we changed the entire eco-system of IT Training. Everyone benefitted. So,the concept of SFS took its roots there. But it was not at all easy to make these elements,available for all the trainees,so that it becomes a life changing thing for India,in their quest to be global leaders in software development.

IT HAPPENNED.
