Did you know? Q : This is the new technology for connections expected to overshadow existing wireless network connections. A :5G or 5th Generation Wireless Systems are coming in 2018. Though the technology that should earn the moniker "5G" is debated, we are being promised speeds up to 10 times the current LTE networks. 5G will run on a new "high-spectrum band", which uses higher frequency signals than 4G. All major players globally - T-Mobile, Verizon, Softbank and AT&T - have been aggressively deploying millimeter wave multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) infrastructure to bring home the insanely crazy speeds later this year. The infrastructure costs for the companies are touted to be lower because the network is delivered through wireless. But do we need 5G? It is predicted b...

The Art of Mentoring

The Art of Mentoring

June 2018
The Art of Mentoring - Rama Vasudevan Are you a good mentor? If you can set people up for success, within a short time, you are. Are you an extraordinary mentor? You move into this category, with your own effort, if you can make people believe in themselves enough, for them to reach for the stars that they never even knew existed before. Often the magical path that leads the mentees to the never-before-imagined heights of achievements, is your time with them, sharing the knowledge gained from your experience, have a patient ear, and an unbiased approach. Do people ever forget such mentors, well definitely not. Which brings us to the question, do these mentors par excellence do anything special? Of course, they do – here are a few things that they seem to do right, at the right time, and

Why Speed Trumps Management

Why Speed Trumps Management - Oliver Yarbrough, PMP Let's face it.  We live in a customer-driven world. Business success is predicated on your ability to rapidly meet (and exceed) your customer's wants, needs, and expectations.  In other words – Your entire company must be built for speed. This is just as true for Fortune 100 corporations as it is for small to medium sized businesses.  Take for example the telecommunications giant, AT&T.  Several years ago, to remain competitive, they decided to retrain 250,000 of their employees. A New York Times article stated – “AT&T's competitors are not just Verizon and Sprint, but also tech giants like Amazon and Google. For the company to survive in this environment, Mr. Stephenson needs to retrain its 280,000 employees

Editor's Note Dear Readers, I welcome you all to the new regime of Project Management and governance as the new government is sworn in the state of Karnataka. The last couple of months were exciting and interesting as all eyes were on the Karnataka elections and a lot was at stake on many frontiers. The climax was never ending as fortune turned sides pretty swiftly and people at large seemed to understand how Kingmakers can sometimes become Kings.  In a city like Bengaluru which is ever gasping for space, and infrastructure issues are always on top of people's mind, it will be difficult for the new government to cope up with the ever increasing challenges. Epic infrastructure projects like Metro takes heavy toll on the general population and slippages in time always remind...
