Information Sharing!


Information Sharing !!

Every organization irrespective of its size, structure requires information on 3 basic areas. The areas are :- PRODUCT : It means something we produce during our paid work. It could be a product or a service. We should look for External Information [EI] that can *improve* [a] appearance quality or [b] functional quality PROCESS : We may call it as means or approach or technology or methods or even routine. We have to look for EI that tell us how we can do things at less [a] effort [b] time and [c] cost without compromising the quality of the final out put which is deliverable to the end user-customer. PEOPLE : It is managing people with whom we interact both at [a] office and [b] home. We have to look for EI that tells us how to *handle people effectively*. In light of this I have consulted the current curriculum of Indian Institute of Management of Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta and Lucknow. I have listed the "SEARCH TERMS" [ST]. These ST's are the subjects or topics taught or discussed at the IIM's. Thus all members can take the benefit of sharing EI based on these search terms. Can you join me on searching some of these IIM topics ?

I have access to a Altavista - the largest web index - connecting 2,75,600 servers and 14,000 usenet news groups. Periodically I plan to put EI on the this forum. Cooperation - from readers like you - in terms of providing EI on these ST would help many of us. To distribute the load, members can *ADOPT* a few of their interest. Improvements, suggestions as a collaborative and a shared effort is welcome for an ongoing evolution of this list. With best regards,

Dr.Raghu CN
