By Satya Adhar 
Dr. Stephen LundinYou have heard about "Stephen and the art of creating fun in the work place". Now meet the author and international speaker in flesh and blood as he comes to Bangkok on 9th and 10th October to talk more about it. The details of the events are here .

While FISH! focused on employee morale, quality of work life, productivity and motivation, Top Performer addresses customer service, customer retention and sales. The FISH! Philosophy provides an important cultural base while Top Performer supplies the action. It also explores the most powerful resource available to any manager, anywhere in the world; natural energy.

Drawing on the tradition of court jesters, buskers and street performers, all of whom would starve if they didn’t understand the laws of energy, Top Performer presents an elegant set of guiding principles that any manager should find useful. Steve Lundin, writer of the FISH! Series of books, has teamed up with a PSP (professional street performer Carr Hagerman) to write this book and develop this program. If you found FISH a helpful metaphor for improving the quality of life at work and thus positively impacting recruitment, retention, morale and productivity; you will find that Top Performer seamlessly connects with the FISH! Philosophy while introducing a unique and useful set of ideas.

BOSIts a great news for all those in top management and the upwardly mobile new age professionals. The Blue Ocean Strategy seminars are being organized right here in Bangkok on 18 and 19 July 2007. These will be presented by Professor Ben M. Bensaou who is a Professor of Management at INSEAD, France and Faculty Member of the Blue Ocean Strategy Network. The event is supported by and the members get a special 10% discount. Contact us now !

Before we dwell deeper into the details of the seminar, let's first understand what this Blue Ocean Strategy (BOS) is all about:

Blue Ocean Strategy is a business book written by Professors W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne, from the INSEAD business school. The book examines how successful businesses captured uncontested market space, and thereby made competition irrelevant.

The "ocean" refers to the market or industry. "Blue oceans" are untapped and uncontested markets, which provide little or no competition for anyone who would dive in, since the markets are not crowded. A "red ocean", on the other hand, refers to a saturated market where there is fierce competition, already crowded with people (companies) providing the same type of services or producing the same kind of goods.

Renewable Energy Technologies: Need for a Shift in Policy Imperatives Print E-mail

India faces three major energy challenges i.e. security, access and environmental impact. With high oil price volatility, India’s vulnerability is further compounded by the fact that it imports about 70 per cent of the total oil consumed and oil imports ( $15 billion or 3 percent GDP in 2003 ) constitute the single largest item in the country's total annual import bill. About 40 per cent of the export earnings are funneled back into importing oil for domestic consumption. Studies have indicated that a $ 10 hike in the oil price would slash India's GDP growth rate by 0.2 per cent and raise the inflation rate by 0.7 per cent (Park, 2004). The only way India can mitigate the oil supply threat is to exploit its indigenous resources and Renewable Energy Technology (RET) offers tremendous opportunity.

Globalization and International Management 

Often the terms liberalization, democratization, market deregulation, privatization, welfare reform, and the general retreat of state from policy interventions have often been studied and associated with globalization (Reich, 1998). Globalization in modern times is marked by an increasing diffusion of commodities and ideas. Advanced technologies in communication and transportation have made it possible for people to transcend national markets earlier limited by geographic boundaries, leading to an ever increasing interdependence and integration. International Management (IM) issues are gaining significance across businesses. It is not only helping the firms to grow, but also redefining the way in which firms have been growing traditionally.
