The 'Silence' Of 'Robert Vadra' In 'Rising Controversies'

By Jatin Gandhi (Guest Writer)

Two years before he lost faith in the ‘Mango people’, Robert Vadra told The Times of India that he had been under party pressure to contest the 2009 Lok Sabha election from Sultanpur, the constituency adjoining his mother-in-law Sonia Gandhi’s Raebareli and brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi’s Amethi. “There was a huge demand for me to stand [from Sultanpur],” he told the paper, “but I was clear that it was not my place. I was being recognised only because of the family.”

Why Leadership-Development Programs Often Fails?

By M H AHSSAN | INNLIVE

Side stepping four common mistakes can help companies develop stronger and more capable leaders, save time and money, and boost morale.

For years, organizations have lavished time and money on improving the capabilities of managers and on nurturing new leaders. US companies alone spend almost $14 billion annually on leadership development. Colleges and universities offer hundreds of degree courses on leadership, and the cost of customized leadership-development offerings from a top business school can reach $150,000 a person.

Weekend Tadka: How Modi Fell Into RaGa's Political Trap?

"This is a suit-boot-ki-sarkar", said one Rahul, the Congress Dynast. "This is not the Modi government", said another Rahul, a patriarch of the Bajaj Auto group. The two statements are pregnant with meaning. The Dynast's meaning was to suggest that Narendra Modi's government favours crony businessmen. Rahul Bajaj’s quip was intended to suggest that Modi was not proving to be the friend of business that he was thought to be.

All the current problems faced by Modi – the parliamentary gridlock, failure to pass key legislation, the lack of new energy in the economy, and growing business disillusionment with him - can best be explained by the wide gulf between the statements of the two Rahuls.

The Secret: How To Become A Fortune 500 Top CEO?

By Steve Tappin (Guest Writer)

Being a Fortune 500 CEO is a privilege and one of the amazing jobs you could ever wish for. It’s also one of the hardest to get, and even harder to do well. Fans of the movie ‘Top Gun’ will remember that only 1 in 100 makes it as an elite naval fighter pilot. In the corporate world, those odds shrink to 1 in 100,000 in major company.

If you want it for the money, prestige and the power, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons and will probably not make it. If the ambition is too much around you, then it’s hard to bring an organization with you.

The business soon started expanding its product offering from mere mattresses to FMCG and later consumer durables.

The MBA Degree: Is It Really Worth For Career Prospect?

By John A. Byrne (Guest Writer)

Year after year, it’s the question asked by hundreds of thousands of people around the world: Is the MBA degree worth it?

Does it really make sense to quit a job you already have, interrupt your life for two years and assume a debt burden that can often exceed six figures for the MBA?

Many strongly believe it’s only worth the time and expense if you can get into a Top 10 business school. Others see much value in a far broader range of MBA programs. And a fairly good percentage have crunched the numbers to conclude they’re better off staying put and climbing upward in the companies that already employ them.

Political Scenario: A 'Modi'-Fication' Of Indian Politics

By M H Ahssan | INN Live

The first time the world heard of Narendra Modi was following a 2002 religious pogrom in Gujarat - he was then, as now, the chief minister of the state. It is alleged that he fanned the flames of hatred by permitting the bodies of brutally slain members of a fundamentalist Hindu group to be paraded, and that he told the police to "let the Hindus vent their anger" on Muslims. 

Modi had of course taken an oath to uphold the Indian constitution, which includes the principles of protecting life and property.

By Fauzia Arshi / Jeddah

Atleast 50,000 small and medium Indian businessmen will suffer a great loss if the 'cover-up' business will close in this peak Ramadhan period. According to the Saudi Labor Ministry’s campaign against illegal foreign workers has led to the closure of several “cover-up” shops run by expats in the name of their Saudi sponsors. As per the ministry report, cover-up business in the Kingdom is estimated at more than SR 230 billion. Many shops in different parts of the Kingdom, including Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Makkah and Madinah have been found closed with “For Sale” boards hanging on them, as they could not correct the status of workers.

By Sachin Lovade / Mumbai

In 2010, Ritesh Shah (name changed), just out of a Mumbai college, decided to test his luck in the stock-broking business. The timing looked perfect: The market had rebounded after one of its most turbulent phases, as the crisis sparked by a global economic slowdown since January 2008 seemed to have ebbed.

Shah, a commerce graduate, believing that to be the best time to start a business, went about expanding operations across of the country. Now, three years later, he has decided to get out of broking operations. “Broking was just not working out. There’s no money in it,” he says.

Indian Entrepreneurs Are Redefining India’s Taxi Service

By M H Ahssan / INN Live

Around a decade ago, entrepreneurs transformed airline ticket booking in India. Online travel companies like MakeMyTrip.com and Yatra.com started offering customers the ease of purchasing an airline ticket of their choice at the click of a button. In 2005, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation, a government enterprise, enabled e-booking of railway tickets. A few years ago, another set of entrepreneurs transformed bus ticketing. Now a new breed of techies is looking to transform an even more fragmented sector in the country’s transportation industry — taxi services.

Insight: Applying Advanced Analytics In Consumer Firms

By Seema Guha / New Delhi

Consumer-facing companies must be able to gather and manage the right data, apply analytics that generate insights, and translate those insights into effective frontline action. Retailers and consumer-packaged-goods (CPG) companies have long had access to vast amounts of transaction data: every day, companies capture information about every SKU sold to every customer at every store. In addition, companies regularly use sophisticated market-research techniques to answer a variety of questions: what products should we develop and sell? How much is the customer willing to pay? Which products should we discount and when?

'Failures Made Us The Best Airline': Air Arabia's CEO Adel

By Mehrara Zaid / Dubai

By every measure, every definition and every analysis, Adel Ali should be a failure. It is ten years since he first launched his low-cost carrier Air Arabia, a project that had failure written all over it. As he says himself, “Every guy I spoke to in the airline industry said it was impossible to start an airline from scratch in six months,” the group CEO of the airline says. “Everyone said low-cost carriers wouldn’t work in the Middle East. ‘You need to have open skies for this to work in the region, and you don’t have that’ they said. Those times were probably my worst times — the lowest point that I reached. Because I hadn’t started the business yet, there was no income and we were burning through the money.”
