Culturally Inclined – The Story of Implementing a New Company Culture

“Change is easy to propose, hard to implement and especially hard to sustain” – Andy Hargreaves

Change is never easy but is essential in order to move forward. Only when we have the capacity to change can we expect a revolution in our lives. This is even more relevant in the world that we live today. To not change is almost like a death sentence. So, as a forward-thinking organization, we need to constantly be in a process of evaluation and re-evaluation to see what needs change. How can we improve? Can we do something better? However, talking about change is easy. And since we are creatures of habit, executing change can be the hard part.

In my previous blog, I wrote about how we decoded our company culture so that it became an enabler of success. This exercise was very intense and comprehensive. After careful assessment and deep calibrations, we were able to identify the four pillars of our company culture that would be the guiding principles of the way we conducted ourselves and our business. … Read More

Culturally Inclined – The Story of Decoding Our Company Culture

“Make something that people want…including making a company that people want to work for” – Sahil Lavingia, CEO, Gumroad

Today’s competitive business landscape is evolving at a speed of light…what was relevant soon becomes redundant. With work and our everyday lives becoming inextricably linked and intertwined, it becomes essential to work towards achieving an equilibrium that helps us balance these two worlds better. In the years that I spent at InfoBeans the one thing that remained constant was the constant focus on the company culture. We articulated the personality of our company through our culture right when it was a fledgling. As the little fledgling grew, we decoded and fleshed out this culture so that it would find its place in today’s intense corporate environment without compromising on the quality of life and the quality of work.

Our story was like the story of any other startup. We worked hard, pushed our boundaries and saw our share of struggles that go into establishing a startup. What we did have was a great set of … Read More

Did ANSI’s WSW2017 Turn a Page for SDOs?

I just returned from Washington, DC where, along with colleagues from work and about 1500 other people, I attended ANSI’s World Standards Week (WSW2017). Maybe it was the long flight home, but it took a couple of days for the fog of jet-lag cleared and the realization emerged that I might have witnessed SDO History in the making.

As in previous editions of this important and influential gathering of Standards Developing Organizations, this year’s event was billed as an opportunity for open and inspirational presentations and extensive dialog about interests, trends, and challenges confronting professionals in the standardization and conformity assessment community. With excitement, I looked forward to a chance to join enlightened minds in the discussion “all-things-SDO”. In that regard, for me, the week turned out to be a full success: The place was abuzz with thought leadership offered by world-prominent contributors, as well as the business and technical leaders of a large number of inspection companies, departmental and agency officials, government and regulatory bodies, academia, industry at large, as well as many of the … Read More
