Ya Thacker! MBA has been exciting. Recently we had a workshop on Design Thinking which I truly believe was a novel and enriching experience.
Hey Zee!! Finally, we are catching up after a long time. You are into your third term of MBA. So what has been the most novel course you have taken there?
So, Design Thinking acquainted me to a holistic process of how to approach problem-solving. It helps us to understand the user, challenge assumptions and redefine problems in an attempt to identify alternative strategies and solutions that might not be instantly apparent with our initial level of understanding. The five phases in this process are to empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test. I am also planning to write about this on our WhatsApp group "Wingz" were I will discuss it more elaborately
Interesting! Can you tell me further about it?
Oh! that remembers me of an interesting case on your competitor PnG that we discussed. That really set the tone for the class and manifested the power of this process. I will surely share that with you and it will help you look at your products as well. Another interesting thing was that we had a hands-on experience
Wow! that is something I can leverage in my RnD role at HUL. What other things made it interesting?
I already have an interesting idea! Being a part of economics club Currenc-I here, I feel that we are not really adding enough value for students. In fact all clubs need to put more effort to channelize interest among people. I plan to reach out to students to gauge what they expect from economics club
I am sure it would have been fun! So, how do you plan to leverage this in future?
So, as I said, first I will reach out to the students and professors as well to gauge what new changes can be done to become the best club here. Accordingly, we will augment our events and take feedback if people like those ideas. After that we will test it for few months by conducting those events and activities. If we get a good response, which I am sure we will, then that will be my legacy at Planet-I.
That will be amazing! How do plan to go ahead?
Ha Thacker! Bola tha ki ab IIM jaane ka decide kar lia hai toh kuch toh machana hai...Chal it was fun meeting after a long time!! Ab Goa trip plan karte hai, wahi milenge!!
Sahi Zee!! You have been totally inspired by this. Phodne ka pura irada hai!!
