Actors and Cricketers: Revived AB-Setting Sachin

"Sun never sets on British empire" but emperors set out to exit, depart, dropped or expire.
Amitabh has revived as cinema has broader scope for roles even when you stick to active and not try being producer, director, distributor or critic. Cricket does not have that. If you are not batting or bowling as sharp as you did earlier, bring you down the order will not help.

I was very confused to see Monty Paneshar so elated after dismissing Sachin at Wankhede yesterday. He was bowled over again, yes, again as it is easier to bowl him over than get him caught.

Looks like being on the grounds and still playing is compared to still on celluloid and cast for lead roles.
If one is on the ground, one is on the battle-field. Will need to fight and close combat. You cannot strategise on the field. That is an exercise done before landing on turf.

Sachin must learn from Amitabh and check where he can diversify, keeping intact and leverage his brand image and capitalise. Plenty of roles available outside being bowled everyday. Coach, commentator, critic, team manager, owning IPL team, heading BCCI, leading role in ICC and many more.

Only if they are tied closely to company strategy, business performance and the needs of employees can reward programmes deliver the ROI that is needed in tough times[MK1] . The Hay Group Total Reward Framework takes strategy as a starting point – and it focuses on total reward: every financial measure together with no

Aon Hewitt Total Rewards Framework

Aon Hewitt Total Rewards Framework The Aon Hewitt model and approach believes in considering Total Rewards as a business tool and very much linked to overall business objectives! Reward as understood is a very complex mechanism and some efforts of correcting the base pay and titling in a hurry by many MNCs in India have done a bigger crime by trying to correct it by market adjustments without looking at the talent map, complexity and expectations out of role and mapping it against the benchmark. Titles in India are a big misnomer and hardly any survey on compensation ever probes and captures and calibrates the tangible outcome based bench marking! If we dive deep, we will find that the key factors of Education, Experience and Quality of Education, Quality and relevance of experience and education are not calculated granular! A diploma holder technical manager gets the salary benchmarked for the top T-school manager with top quality experience in a challenging and break-through

Well-known interviewing technique “laddering,” the Means-End Chain!

Courtesy HBR article...  The 30 Elements of Consumer Value: A Hierarchy (hbr.org) Understanding Consumer Decision-Making with Means-End Research - Rockbridge (rockresearch.com) Many of the studies involved the well-known interviewing technique “laddering,” which probes consumers’ initial stated preferences to identify what’s driving them In our research we don’t accept on its face a consumer’s statement that a certain product attribute is important; instead we explore what underlies that statement. For example, when someone says her bank is “convenient,” its value derives from some combination of the functional elements  saves time,   avoids hassle,   simplifies,  and  reduces effort.   We have identified 30 “elements of value”—fundamental attributes in their most essential and discrete forms.  These elements fall into four categories: functional, emotional, life changing, and social impact. Our model traces its conceptual roots to the psychologist Abraham Maslow’s “hierarchy of needs,
