One Cursor but Two Mouse

Have you ever tried to control your mouse from the mouse pad and the optical mouse at the same time.If you have, then you may know that it is quite close to impossible. The only way to achieve this is, if both the control is in the same direction. In that case its a redundant. 

In similar ways, in the management process, if one person is working under different heads then it is impossible to make the person work, or get anything done from him.

This is the problem that is faced during improper project management, there are more then one person making decisions. The decision maker has to be one and only one, not more than that. Yes, we can have team to discuss the issue, but the final call has to be made from one person. In similar ways that happen in the court rooms.  

The collaborative discussion may be important but the thinking and making any final decision has to be done by one key responsible person. This kind of management makes sure that the decision is taken with due responsibility. This may sound a trivial thing but it does exist everywhere in some way or other. Though we have only one heads in most organisation, the decision is not always taken by him but somehow indirectly by others.

The sense of responsibility grows when you find that you are the only one responsible for making any decision. When there is more then one, the responsibility factor gets divided and that causes inaccurate decisions or irresponsible behaviour. It is also a reason why a people are mostly destructive in a group, because the blame is on the group and not at the individuals.

Humans seems to be more aggressive while in a pack then in individual. May be its the instinctive behaviour of humans. So major points that I wanted to make was that in any management structure try to avoid two heads.

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :) But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared : Sale Person   : Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz? Bald Person : (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time. Sale Person    : Here sir, do you want to by a comb?  Bald Person  : Can't you

Fearful Consumer Market

Consumer market is something, I always feared. During my engineering days, I knew it was one area where I would not find myself working. I always feared the harsh competition of the market. I worried if ever, anything I made would sustain in the market. Or how people would react to it? You can say, I feared criticism and all the yap yap of group of people, who knows only how to suggest but not to act. Thus, I kept my interest into custom projects and not related to anything that a single consumer would use, rather it was something of community service. But with changing time, I knew I had to make a plunge into the ocean of consumer market and face the competition. "Be a man! Dude" That is what I would say to myself. I knew I couldn't swim, but I had to give it a try.  Journey into the consumer market is like that of 20000 Leagues Under The Sea . There are so many different kinds of creatures around to look and be fascinated. Some are small living in tiny groups. Some are
