The last quarter of the year is usually the most happening one. Their is something about human nature that keeps everything to the last minute. Anyway, that's the topic for some other day.
Today, I'd like to share three important and interesting things with you.
1. HBR Article: The reason why I think this HBR piece will change your perspective is not because of the author (which is me) but because of the framework and path it lays out for career progression. The idea equally applies in the corporate sector as well as social settings.
2. Free Conference Tickets: Next week I am speaking at the API Days conference in Melbourne. I can get you in as my guest for a ticket valued at $799.
3. Jugaad: In colloquial terms, jugaad is referred to as non-conventional, frugal innovation, aka hack. But is there more to it? Should entrepreneurs and small businesses think about jugaad? Will that devalue their work?
During your first year in the workforce, what you know is the most important. Developing the competencies and base-level knowledge essential to succeed in your role and often determine eligibility for advancement. Then a few years in, your expertise is superseded by your network.
But the tipping point comes only after that stage. This is when you’re ready to lead a larger team and who knows you matters.
So, how do you go about it? Check out my latest article in Harvard Business Review to know more.
Next week I will be in Melbourne. Talking about transformative innovation and its importance in the context of APIs and other IT systems.
In my view, transformative innovation is the need of the hour. Moreover, it is much different from than typical innovation people often talk about. So, I will talk about why and how of this new way of doing things.
Organizers have extended three free tickets for my guests. All you have to do is, go to the registration link, and select the late bird option if you'd like to join in person. And then use promo code as IKNOWANANDTAMBOLI. That's it. The ticket will be free for you.
Just remember, this is for the first 3 registrations, so hurry up.
And finally, some more about the well-known, all-famous, jugaad. In several Indian languages, jugaad is referred to as non-conventional, frugal innovation, or hack.
But is there more to it? Should entrepreneurs and small businesses think about jugaad? Will that devalue their work?
My colleagues and I are organizing something exciting later this year. If you'd like to know more or participate in it, just hit reply.
Until next time...
