A Brief Profile - about myself

Business Bottleneck Analysis: Getting Direct Business Benefit from IT - A Case Study

Computerisation can take the path of routine work reduction if it is not given a direction  and meaning by defining the Business Objective and aligning the IT objectives with the business objectives. The Information Technology initiative can very well turn out to be a shot in the dark without the torchlight of the business objective.

Businesses can improve the effectiveness of computerisation by doing what could be called a 'Bottleneck Analysis' for the business - an analysis of where the shoe pinches the most.

It will help companies to design systems which can directly contribute to the business instead of using the resources in activities peripheral to the business.

Just as a small change in strategy can win battles, this small shift in emphasis can make a world of difference to the IT effectiveness in companies. This is illustrated with a Case study in order to help the participants to identify their own business bottlenecks and directly reap business benefits of computerization. Otherwise the computer may well end up as a super efficient clerk.

Computerisation is now occupying higher priority in the business activities of a number of companies.  To implement their computerisation plans, the companies need the right people in every discipline.  As a result, more and more companies are giving preference to people who have exposure to computerised systems.

Against this backdrop, the need for computer awareness for your professional growth cannot be over-emphasised.  You as an ambitious professional know that knowledge of computers is important for your personal growth in this competitive, fast modernising industry.

You need the knowledge to manage your department more efficiently after utilising the opportunities offered by the new technology.  You want it to further you in your own profession and to reach new heights of efficiency.

While computerising an activity for a department, the head of that department and the top management play a key role. This lecture on Computer Awareness has been designed for senior officers, particularly the department heads or unit heads and top management. The lecture is intended for such people who can make a difference because of their important position in the decision making process.


The objective of the lecture is to enable the senior managers to effectively use the opportunities offered by Computer Technology through Faster, Smoother and Meaningful computerisation of their activities.

Today there is a great deal of enthusiasm about computer education. At the same time there is a confusion about what you should learn about computers.  You are an accomplished professional and an expert in your own field. I am sure you must have wondered on several occasions, "What do I as a senior manager need to know about computers ?"

You feel a strong urge to learn but do not know where to start.  Moreover, do you have the time to learn what they call the bits and bytes?

There is good news for you-you don't have to learn all of that complicated stuff called Programming.  And what you do need to learn can be easy too!

The lecture aims at making you, as a senior manager, aware of just that which you need to know about computers and computerisation. It aims at making you aware of your own critical role in the change process.


The lecture covers the Computer Technology briefly, with explanation on how a computer works and what are its components. It deals with the capabilities and limitations of the computer and attempts to correct the popular misconceptions about computers. But to confidently face today's environment of fast computerisation, it is not enough for you to know only the technical details, it is more important to know the complexities of the process of computerisation, the different steps involved, the pitfalls, and most important of all, HOW TO MANAGE COMPUTERISATION.

All  of us want to perform at work. In this article, the author attempts to list some simple ways to improve personal and group effectiveness.

By  being effective, I mean producing more results with the  same efforts. But before we can talk of achieving results, how many of us  are  clear what is the result we want to accomplish?  Are  we clear what exactly we are up to - what is our goal or objective?

At  work,  we get so deeply involved grappling with  one  problem after  another that we have no time to raise our head  above  our shoulders  to see where is our destination and which way  we  are heading.

The author seeks to drive home the need to  define  the  goals clearly  for  every single task and explains  with  examples  and illustrations  how it helps. Having defined the  objectives,  he discusses how to maximise the outputs of the team working for that objective?

Moreover,  having  defined the objectives, how do  you  go  about achieving the goal? How do you ensure that the team does not work at  tangents  but  contributes to the common  goal?  The author attempts to list steps for effectiveness by identifying strategic issues.

The author highlights the difference between Objective and Means, Long Term Goals and Short Term Goals. It also warns how dangerous it is to concentrate on only Means and Short Term Goals without keeping an eye on the Objective. The author concludes that Goal Orientation is not only the key to personal and group effectiveness in every activity, it is also the key to business effectiveness.  The author explains in a unique and simple way the meaning of Business Process Re-engineering (BPR) and how Goal Orientation is the basis of BPR.

The  article  is  important  for one and  all.  It  is  good  for personal effectiveness as well as team effectiveness.

The article is very illustrative and easy to comprehend.

Today Quality is the key to survival for businesses. Businesses are going global and the  internet and e-commerce shrinking the world so that the whole world market is made available to the consumer. Obviously the consumer has greater choice and would go for the best quality.

So far India is itself providing a substantial market to the Indian producer. When the distances shrink, the Indian consumer will have access to the world market. In such a circumstance, will he buy Indian? Can the Indian goods provide the same quality as the world market?. Can the Indian producer then depend on the Indian consumer to provide him the market? Will the Indian products and business survive against the onslaught of world class products?

Indian producers are under severe threat from the world market and unless we produce quality, we shall be extinct. When it comes to the issue of quality, we Indians are fast asleep. Indians need to be jolted out of their slumber.

This presentation tries to point out that we Indians have been suffering from severe apathy to quality. It tries to look at the typical Indian mindset and find the root cause of why we have developed this mindset. It takes a look at the history of Indian economy, industry and the political situation, analyses where we went wrong and what needs to be done now to correct the situation. Indians need to wake up to the real quality issues if we were to survive. Not only the Indian producers need to produce quality, Indian consumers need to get into the habit of demanding quality.

The presentation analyses the Indian psyche and believes that this awareness will shake him out of his slumber.

Approximate Duration of Presentation : 2 hours

Professional Experience:

I am an InfoTech professional presently working in a Software Consultancy business unit. I have over 20 years of experience in Information Technology (IT) developing and implementing computerised business solutions, most of which as head of IT departments.

My areas of expertise are InfoTech Management, IT Strategy for successful Implementations, People aspects of IT, IT related Change Management, What Top Management needs to know of IT, etc.  

With a right mix of People, Process and Technology (PPT) expertise, I specialise in Business Process Automation focused on business objectives and people. Having managed IT on behalf of both IT user companies and SEI CMM Level 5 software manufacturing companies, I have gained expertise right from high level IT Strategies, Change Management, Strategies for IT implementations, upto down to earth system architecture and software delivery. With my close study of the businesses and people, I have developed the insight to develop business solutions that work for businesses and people.

The presentations are based on my over twenty years of experience working in computer profession, my close association with people using computers and a strong human orientation to computerisation problem.

I am an engineering graduate from I.I.T., the most reputed Technology institute in the country and have an MBA (with specialisation in Systems) from I.I.M., the most reputed management institute of the country. I have passed a course "Energo Cybernetic Strategy - Advanced Management Diploma" with flying colours (from Mewes Systems, Germany).
