Hello Friends,


I am really excited.  The new year is just around the corner.  The promise it holds, the power it creates within you for all the good that is just waiting to happen has an effect on you which is just too good to explain.  The month of December always has a magic of its own.  The weather is pleasant.  There is an air of expectancy, of change, and an optimistic outlook for the coming new year.  Christmas reiterates and strengthens this magical and exciting feelings with its own celebration of the love and hope.


I am sure all of you too feel the positive currents of December.  If not here is how you can get excited about the future.  We all tend to measure our success with  material progress as the only yardstick.  However real progress is achieved by  intangibles which lead towards money and wealth.  


Just look at al the new things you learned, new knowledge acquired, new friends and relationships created, new experiences which have made you richer, new courses and seminars attended, new books which you read and the new maturity you attained as a person.  These are the assets which have been added to your personal balance sheet.  Leveraging these assets you can always create more wealth.  Give it its due time.  Meet the coming year head on with your goals so that you are prepared for all the great opportunities just waiting around the corner.


Friends, just relax and enjoy the festivities and the holidays.

How valuable is Content in Your organization?

Copyright of R.G. Srinivasan


I had written an article sometime back on information enterprise and how

information distilled to a point of consumer & stakeholder value becomes

knowledge.  This knowledge is the key productivity factor in organizations. 


Now we are talking about another major factor in arriving at the right



What is content and how valuable is content in your organization? 


While there are complicated information models and systems, the purpose

of this article is to highlight the basic areas.


Content is effectively sourcing and structuring of Information in interesting,

clear, crisp fashion to communicate effectively without loss of time or effort

in explaining the subject matter to user groups.


These user groups could be your customer, employees, suppliers and



Once properly structured it does not require frequent modifications and

explanations.  This saves huge amount of productive time resulting in added

measurable revenues.  The purpose of all knowledge is communication of

specific ideas quickly.


We have endless e-mails, papers, strategies, power point presentations all

purporting to dispense analytical knowledge about some or the other facet

of business process.  But in reality is it being achieved?  Is the content to

the point? 


Are you communicating the essential knowledge without beating about the

bush with number of emails, memos and reports being exchanged for every

issue?  How much of the content generated in organizations being read used

and implemented?  If you just analyze the unused content in your organization,

you would be shocked at the amount of man hours and consequent dollars

being wasted.


Look around your office.  Look around the internet and these forums.  What a

lot of time is wasted in posting the same copied content from one forum to

another resulting in endless deletion of mails by hundreds of people all around

losing huge amount of man hours precious to the managements in deriving

productivity.  The internet and intranet is adding huge amounts of content into

the virtual as well as actual stacks of content which may or may not be of any

use.  Is someone looking at these issues?


Much of the content generated anywhere lacks creativity or originality, and

does not offer new perspective on old issues.


Content is the process by which knowledge is channelised for communication. 

If it takes five e-mails to your supplier or customer instead of one on a specific

issue, there is a productivity loss of 80%.  Put a cost to each wasted paper,

presentation, strategies, add it up for the whole organization and the combined

cost could be mind boggling. 


Is your organization thinking in terms of the cost of content?  If not now is

the time to start as you may be losing millions annually.

Just Relax

Here is an extract from the Book "Murphy's Law and other reasons why things go wrong!" by Arthur Bloch.  Have a good laugh. 

Gordon's First Law:
If a research project is not worth doing at all, it is
not worth doing well.
Murphy's Law of Research:
Enough research will tend to support your theory.
Maiers's Law:
If the the facts do not conform to the theory, they
must be disposed off.
1.. The bigger the theory the better.
2. The experiment may be considered a success if no
more than 50% of the observed measurements must be
discarded to obtain a correspondence with the theory
Williams and Holland's Law:
If enough data is collected, anything may be proven
by statistical methods.
Rule of Accuracy:
When working toward the solution of a problem, it
always helps if you know the answer
Young's Law:
All great discoveries are made by mistake.
The greater the funding, the longer
it takes to make the mistake.
Futility Factor:
No experiment is ever a complete failure - it can always
serve as a negative example.

Does it seem to too close to life to laugh?
