How do you motivate someone to create something that disrupts the paradigm and rewrites the rules? Do you say, “Give me something disruptive and I will pay you ten times your salary“. No. Disruption or innovation happens only under two situations:
- If our survival is challenged by nature, we innovate to survive. This has been the story of human history from the day we started walking this earth.
- Or, if our egos are challenged. This is probably why extreme sports…

For a business, a website serves as a medium to earn money and mark an online presence. But is it enough to create a website and leave it as it is? Probably it would then resemble a stationary car, which was started-on but nobody cared to put the pedal on the accelerator.
Many-a-times, you may come across a good-looking website, not giving any results to its owner. It could be heart-breaking! It usually happens…

The good news, for marketers, is that data mining really can make a difference to most bottom lines. The bad news is that, despite what data mining can do, it is so often used so poorly that it is virtually useless.
In many cases, the data is a big part of the problem. Even in the most reputable companies, data is often “dirty,”—out of date or otherwise irrelevant. Most commercially available data mining packages lack the flexibility and functionality that real world marketers need.… Continue

Companies collect so much data today and yet when you go looking for it you will often find barriers! So what’s wrong…If we were honest with ourselves, as professionals, we would admit what Rosabeth Moss Kanter suggested in 1979 in a famous Harvard Business Review article: that “Power is Americas last dirty word. It is easier to talk about money -- and much easier to talk about sex -- than it is to talk about power. People who have it deny it; people who want to it do not want to appear to… Continue

Many businesses do not have direct interactions with their customers. Service industries like Retailers, Banks & Telecom companies have millions of customer interactions which give them the customer’s pulse! How do packaged consumer goods companies achieve the same customer intimacy?

Marketers believe that creating “personalized communication” is important to drive a relevant communication strategy. But often they do not have control over the personalization process. Often very shoddy and “very personal” communication gets sent out by local sales folk which does nothing to enhance the brand perception and even less to the effectiveness of the communication. In a bank, the billing process is possibly as “personal as it can get” but rarely would you find anything but mass… Continue

Companies around the world are literally drowning in data. A typical airline or retailer, for example, is collecting data from many operational systems and storing terabytes, if not petabytes, of data. But how closely do CMO’s and CIO’s actually work or are they often at cross purposes! In India and I am sure in other furiously growing markets as well, IT is so busy building the basic infrastructure to manage the business that they often ignore the strategic priorities that Marketing is trying… Continue
