    Episode #7 - a culture called The Lean Startup (26m)

    Episode #7 - a culture called The Lean Startup (26m)

    The Lean Startup, a methodology for developing products and businesses using short cycles of build-measure-learn to continuously improve. That's probably the crispiest definition one can provide but what impact does this have on products, on businesses, and more so on the culture of an organisation? A startup may embrace this methodology on day one of its conception and not even realise how its culture gets moulded by it, however more mature organisations who wish to realise the benefits of this methodology do witness a cultural change, sometimes not very successful ones. So it only seemed fair to speak with someone like Bob van Luijt, the CEO & Co-founder of SeMI Technologies, who's witnessed this multiple times. His current startup provides a solution called Weaviate which is a Semantic Search Engine with built-in Machine Learning to search through Unstructured Data and this is used by huge organisations for building, for example - their Knowledge Graphs. It was fascinating for me to understand from him how one can balance out cultural differences when working in a space like his and hopefully you and find it just as intersting as I did. I'm your host Vishal Prasad and this is EnterpriseJoy, educating organisations to be awesome!

    Episode #6 - Period Leaves, Period (21m)

    Episode #6 - Period Leaves, Period (21m)

    The title of this episode is Period Leaves, Period. The second period is a full-stop, in-case you didn't get the pun. It's usually unusual for men to talk about periods, but I'm going to do it anyway. It all started with the Founder & CEO of Zomato, publishing a blog on 8th of August 2020. Zomato introduced upto 10 days of Period Leaves for women, including transgender people. And the media went berserk. There was coverage in national news papers and news channels, there were interviews and statements from Zomato officials, however what caught my attention was the eruption on social media. The social media went wild with supporting and against supporting such a policy; there were men & women who were supporting it and getting lashed by those not supporting it, the same happened the other way around, although if you were a man and not supporting it you were just a jerk, women not supporting it got some coverage and commented up on. So I thought, why shouldn't I look at it objectively, keeping all the pseudo-science BS out, and just focusing on what people have to say about such policies.

    Interesting bits and pieces:


    00:01:24 - What is Zomato?
    00:02:07 - Zomato's blog Introducing Period Leaves (Link in the description)
    00:04:07 - Does this policy violate the notion of equality at work?
    00:04:47 - Equality vs Equity (Link in the description)
    00:09:38 - Does this policy give a handicap status to women?
    00:11:00 - Temporarily Able Bodied (TAB)
    00:14:25 - Can this policy be misused?
    00:16:23 - Trust
    00:19:34 - Conclusion

    Episode #5 - Extreme Ownership; when everyone's a Leader (1h, 18m)

    Episode #5 - Extreme Ownership; when everyone's a Leader (1h, 18m)

    Let's say that you were on a vacation and the day you returned you found out that your team has made the biggest blunder in the history of your organisation. You're to meet the Senior Leadership in an hour to explain what went wrong and possibly point the one who should take the fall for it. You spend enough time understanding what went wrong and even identify who was responsible for it and now you're in front of the senior leadership. But when they ask who's fault it was, you take the blame on yourself. The senior leadership is surprised how it could be you since you just returned from your vacation to which you say, it's your team and their actions are your accountability and you're ready to face any consequences that come off it. Now that's extreme! This and many more unconventional actions is what Sriharsha and  discussed in this podcast.

    Episode #4 - Building High-performance Teams (1h, 31m)

    Not expecting high performance is no longer an option. In the information age, mediocrity doesn't stand a chance and this means individuals, teams, leaders, and organisations need to deliberately focus towards improving their current status quo. This would mean aligning teams to conform to their high performance standards, working together to continuously develop themselves, overcoming their dysfunctions, and managing conflicts head-on. This is what I discussed with Vinaya Murlidharan during this podcast, she is a Coach at Fiserv in Pune and leads one of their Delivery Transformation teams.

    Episode #3 - What makes an organisation Agile? (2h, 24m)

    Episode #3 - What makes an organisation Agile? (2h, 24m)

    Every organisation needs agility, be it in being the market leader or trying to keep their businesses afloat during a crisis. In the year 2020, every organisation is facing a crisis, as we go through a global turmoil right now, it is sad to say that many shall not pass. It is said that we live in a VUCA world, one that's volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous and it takes agility to navigate through it. 

    To discuss this further, joining me for this episode is Sunil Mundra; he is the author of the book Enterprise Agility - Being Agile in a Changing World, a well know speaker, and a Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks who's helped organisations navigate through complexity since the past 30 years.

    Episode #2 - Motivating your Workforce (1h, 2m)

    The question "What motivates an individual to perform their best?" has been asked since the days of scientific management and the answer has evolved over many years. The applications of research in this area spans from the fields of education to game designing; and it's needless to say that an organisation that has motivated people has better products & services and much happier shareholders. 

    And to discuss this further, joining me for this podcast is Priya Kher, she is the Director of Collective Quest, a psychologist, and an executive coach who has been supporting organisations to develop their people capabilities since more than 20 years.
