Business Analyst vs. Six-Sigma Belt

“Is Green Belt a prerequisite to Black Belt?” and my answer is always “NO”. The follow-up question; “Then, why the ranking in position?” Whichever, one you take depends on how comfortable you are with Statistical Analysis?

One of the most pathetic situations in life is when you spend most of your life achieving the dream of others without achieving yours. You should endeavor to work where […]

The Missing Ingredient in Career Development

I was in the India Embassy when I was asked about my profession; “I am a teacher” – a succinct reply without encouraging further explanation.

Feedbacks are Important!

In the past 3 years, I take my time to watch the X-Factor US and I wonder why participants still confuse their passion for talent.

The Downside of Certifications

In my 13 years of teaching, I can attribute performance goals as one of the greatest hindrances to learning – once a performance goal is placed as an incentive to drive learning, it produces the opposite result to the objective.
