Hello friends,

Welcome back to the Monday munch.

Today in the beginning of the session we saw an article which mentioned the letter written by Satya Nadella, the new CEO of Microsoft to its employees. In the introduction letter Mr. Nadella has mentioned his plans that he wants to implement in the company. In the letter he had also given a detailed introduction about himself to his staff so that they can know him better, both personally and professionally. He says that family, curiosity and hunger for knowledge defines him.

Here he has mentioned that Microsoft does not respect tradition- it only respects innovation. Moreover he says”I knew there was no better company to join if I wanted to make a difference”.  He finally said that he believes any company needs talent, resources and perseverance and he finds all the three things in the company. So he hopes to take the company to the next level making a remarkable progress.

In the later part of the session we discussed about our ongoing projects. Reviews and updates were taken for the top five tasks which were defined in the previous week.

November 26th, 2013 No comments

Hiii Friends !!!!

Today we had a Monday munch to understand the significance of user experience specially when you are creating a product. Brands, prices etc. also play a major role  in success of any SAAS, but customers will retain only when they will have a great experience. So we discussed about some universal rules of UX . Some of them may not be applicable to every product but we can definitely use them with a proper contextual understanding.

In the other part of the session we seen some famous quotes said by famous persons. Everyone got a food for thought by these quotes. Among  them the most inspiring thought was ‘ Either Write something worth reading or do something worth writing.’ said by Benjamin Franklin.

After that, we discussed the planning and road – map of an upcoming mega IT event IT EXPO –  2014. Every leaders gave updates of their projects and decided goals for the next week. So, overall the session was quite inspiring and encouraging.

October 21st, 2013 No comments

Welcome back to Monday Munch.

We had begun the session with a motivational video. The first part of the session was about “Turning Problems into solutions”. Everybody is worried about the problems which arise. They think about the past and get worried about the future. Instead, we should focus on solutions. The first part of the session was concluded saying that instead of getting worried and panic we should focus on solutions, rather than problems.

The second part of the session was about How to create “devoted customers”? Expectation and Experience are the two main aspects to create a customer devoted. ”The more you engage with customers the clearer things become and the easier it is to determine what you should be doing”. Finally, it was concluded that, Give your customers a damn good listening and bring him to devotion.

That’s it for today’s session. See you on Next Monday.!!

Smart work is better than hard work

September 4th, 2013 No comments

Hello Friends,

Welcome Back,

In today’s Monday Munch we had an interesting session of working hard vs. working smart. It is always better to work smart and achieve goals rather than doing hard work and end up nothing. We discussed the benefits of working smart and also the disadvantages of hard work without proper planning. Smart work with proper planning always pays more than hard work.

We also learnt the tactics of smart work through some case study. It was including plan for priorities, share the priorities and it is acceptable to quit sometimes when the work is not going to pay. The other things we can do to work smartly is to delegate non – productive work and to quit some time when it is not relevant.

The other part of the session was all about updates of last week and goals of next week.

Most Outstanding Work – Vaishali Sutariya

Workaholic Awards – Kiran Boghra , Nikunj Patel

Team of the Month – QA team

Ferrari Award – Hiren Ghoniya

Arjun Award – Shweta Patel

Helping Hand Award – Chandni Desai

Man of the Month – Mitul Golakiya

Debut Award – Vaishali Sutariya , Kiran Boghra

That’s it for today..

Cyaaa next Monday…

Product World – Monday Munch, 26th August,2013

August 27th, 2013 No comments

Hello Friends!!!

Today we had a Monday Munch in a different way. There was no videos shown but we show a PPT about products and usability. For any product, it is very essential to take care of usability and user perspective. Making product really user friendly is most important than anything else and even if we have to change or re-work to make product usable than also it is ok. As customer is the real king of any market and customer – centrist products are easy to sell and generate revenue.

The other part of the session was about punctuality, discipline and delivering work on time. We all have decided to start working at 9:30 sharp. As discipline is the first step towards success. We all will try to deliver the assigned task without any delay. As delivering right thing on right time is most critical thing to achieve definite target.

Everyone was rejuvenated with this session and pulled up their shocks to do their best!!!
