Research and practice need to go hand in hand

Research and practice are two sides of a coin. Most actions result from thoroughly and well carried out research, but somehow, research has largely been confined to being just an academic activity that is carried out for satisfying the professional urges of the researchers. Translating research into practice, however, is very important, because research in itself does not mean much in the real world if what is obtained from it is not implemented. Likewise, many practical, real world products…

Your Hacked Mobile Phone Number is Like Your Social Security Number

If you have a cell phone, and you use it in any way associated with accessing online accounts (and many do), you are putting yourself at risk of getting hacked. With only a phone number and a bit of information, which is easy to get through social engineering, a hacker can break into your personal and financial accounts.

This works by getting information about you, such as your birthday, address, or even the last four digits of your…

Conflict management is not about chopping heads

 

Conflict management is not about chopping heads. Chopping heads is not a wise option or decision when it comes to conflict management. Many a time, a session in which the parties in a conflict can be made to come together and sit and talk can resolve conflict. Conflict management should not adapt the extreme approaches of either throwing the parties out of the organization or treating them with kid gloves.

It is wrong to say that all conflict is bad at all times. This…

Why do they dislike us so?

Recently I was speaking to someone who works as a back-office advisor in one of the big global banks. We were talking about the challenge the back-office often has in getting their point across to the “producers” in organisations. He said the nickname for his team members is BPOs which is an acronym for Business Prevention Officer. Oh, why do they dislike us so?

He then went on to say that the bank was fined last year for doing deals remarkably similar to the deals they were…
