V. Kumar

"Marketing does not get its due respect in the boardroom. One reason for this is the lack of accountability, with no direct link between spending and profitability. The challenge we face is to get data at the customer level, on how much profit they are contributing. And more importantly, chasing profitable customers, rather than the loyal ones. And, the customers who exhibit the highest future potential, instead of past contributions. Making companies move from product-centric to customer-centric involves adopting an interaction orientation where CLV (customer lifetime value) is maximised."

S. Sridhar

"Disposing of 'distress inventory' by airline companies without diluting the brand image as well as revenue is a big challenge. Distress inventory, as you may know, refers to seats remaining unsold at the time of flight departure. On an average, 60000 seats are unsold per day, in India, as against total capacity of 200000 seats. That is, a whopping 30 per cent, as against the global average of 15 to 20 per cent. We, in Atyourprice.in, help airlines to distribute this inventory to flexible traveller at a price lower than the published price, and thus earn revenue."

G. Shankaran Nair

"When you have a generic problem definition, it should be possible to cross-validate it across many domains. A wholistic system thinking is better than fragmented thinking, which is too common in organisations these days. For example, customer service is seen as a separate piece. No, it is the entire organisation. Which is what we emphasise to Servion clients. Customer service apparatus is like the woodwork for the house, something that is usually an afterthought, at a time when the home buyer has perhaps run out of funds and ideas. Similarly, companies spend a lot of time and effort in setting up manufacturing capability, marketing capability, building the brand and forming the sales team. They start thinking about service the first time a customer calls to complain."

Rohit Biddappa

"Indian manufacturing can rule the world. This is possible by focussing on innovation, by not being complacent, and by taking a professional and holistic approach to product development for a global market. We already have examples, such as Tata Nano, Indian shipbuilding, and engineering services. PTC is an enabler for companies that have the global vision, to facilitate more efficient product development and processes. The recent announcment we made with Kirloskar Bros Ltd (KBL) is a case in point, where a combination of PTC technology and KBL innovation resulted in the successful siphon design at the Narmada Sarovar Dam project which led to an efficient pumping of water to farmers in the parched areas of Kutch. This innovation won a US patent for KBL."

Lalit Khaitan

"Over the last 10 years Radico has grown to be the second largest in the country by volumes. We have been able to create many 'millionaire' brands. The Magic Moments Vodka, launched in the semi-premium segment about 2 years ago, has crossed 650,000 cases, and is hopefully headed to cross the 1 million mark this year. In the semi-premium segment, we have a 75 per cent share, in the country. We have also put in the market 6 varieties of flavour, such as 'lemon grass and ginger' (perhaps, the first in the world) chocolate, and green apple. Brand ambassador for this Vodka is Hrithik Roshan, the youth icon. Growth of vodka sales in India is at 30 per cent p.a. compared to 10 per cent for the total liquor industry. Similarly the Masterstroke Whisky, a product of the 50:50 JV with Diageo, is doing well in the first year. In the next 15 months Radico is launching two more brands in the premium range, in the brown spirit (whisky, brandy and rum) segment. One of these will be launched in the current financial year."

"Here comes everybody! What does a brand when there is a great fragmentation of viewership, disintermediation and democratisation. Practically, anybody can be a brand, equipped with the Internet, social networking and so on. Which is where we come in to work with the existing brands and help them deal with the realities of the Internet."

"I often draw inspiration from Lance Armstrong who used to say, 'Pain is temporary, but quitting is for ever.' As a business, there are a lot of challenges. So with being a working mother. Whenever I have faced crises in both my professional and personal life, this quote helps me come back on track. Many CEOs seem to think similarly, and find a way out of the pain by not quitting. However, the same cannot be said of the current generation."

"Speech is heading for exciting times due to the proliferation of mobile phones and the ability to handle local languages. Most of the telecom operators realise that city-based subscriber base is plateauing, and that they have to reach the rural market. The only option is to automate using speech to reach the needs of the masses. For instance, we have developed 'Local Vocal Search' - a first in the world - which combines GIS and speech-based search."

"The current slowdown that the Indian IT industry faces is more in the financial services segment. We, as a company into engineering and IT services for 'discrete manufacturing industries' (e.g. machine building, material handling, pump/motor manufacturing), find that the demand has in fact grown during the last 2 years. Our focus is on the mid-market, which is just beginning to outsource."

"The best of times are yet to come. We just need to keep working towards excellence. The key is to remain focused on what we want to achieve. Primarily think long-term and execute in a short-term manner, meaning the cumulative result of all the short-term goals should lead to the larger long-term goal. Expecting the long-term goal to happen in the short-term can lead to anxiety."

"Remaking gold jewels after using the same for only a short period is a common practice, but often wasteful. For example, you may get a new jewellery item instead of losing out on remaking 10 items. Contrary to popular belief, what was a fashionable pattern years ago returns as a new trend again. Therefore, desist from remaking old jewellery too early on, especially if the item had involved intricate workmanship."

"The cleaning industry in India is at a very nascent stage. There are no standards or guidelines on the procedures and cleaning aids. The scope for developing this area is truly very vast. The major challenge to the growth of the industry is the low level of awareness with regard to the availability of technology of cleaning. Another hurdle is the mindset - the resistance to change. "

"Taking multiple data sources into consideration, a rough estimate of the number of mentally challenged 'children' (in the chronological age group of 0 to 30, but with a far less mental age) in Tamil Nadu can be close to 80,000. In recent years, we find that the number of abandoned mentally challenged children has been on the rise, perhaps due to the rising costs in maintaining them. Any solution to a problem of this magnitude requires the support of all of us."

"The innate nature of the IT and ITeS industry is such that the size of the pie is a growing one. While North America has got widely exposed to IT, the same is not true of other regions of the world, such as Europe, Japan, Apac and so on. There is an increasing awareness that one has to stick to the core activities and hive off the non-core ones to players who specialise in those activities. The other advantage in the process is that what is non-core to a company is core to the service provider, and hence there is a lot of scope for value addition in the performance of the non-core activities."
