TransGanization Aka “Organizational Transformation” By Rohit Arora – Book Review

By on Dec 14, 2011 in Wisdom | 1 comment

Typically, I’d refrain from buying a book that has an Indian author sporting a nice business suit. I somehow figured out the connection between authors who wear suit to the contents of their books. That connection is like this: Authors who wear suit write boring books. An example of this is the world famous book, “You Can Win”; which basically has been written for the people who think they are losers. Oh well, IIT+MBA thingy does not impress me anymore. Anyway. TransGanization is the latest management buzzword in the B-town that you can quickly add to your own Buzzword Bingo game to play during dull office meetings. But when you ‘receive’ a book for a review; you don’t have lot of options. So here’s my review of the book. First things first – The Book is GOOD. I’d however recommend that you should start reading the book from page...

Surprises come in different flavours, and I had a very nice surprise yesterday evening. I got a mail from my blogging engine saying I’ve a new comment on my post in which I criticized the movie title(d) “Shwaas”. I had said that I did not find any connection between the title of the movie and the story. I was shocked/surprised to see that the producer of the movie, Mr. Deepak Chaudhari commented on the post! Check it here – Click Me I’ve mixed feelings while writing this post. First of all, Mr. Chaudhari’s comment does explain how the title “Shwaas” is relevant to the theme of the movie. The message is very good – one can be successful even without eyesight. I’ve seen few blind  people who are way better than the rest of us. I remember our English professor – Mr. Asudani. He is a genius! Physical disabilities can never be an obstacle. We all...
