Conflict Management: Simulation Exercise


Lego (Building blocks) are one of the best and affordable tool to understand various business terminologies/ concepts. Students were introduced to ‘conflict’ that one faces because of three factors: lack of trust, too many questions; and lack of clear goal. These factors lead to a ‘Hidden Agenda’. When a conflict arises earlier or later two things are visible: Fear and Failure.

A simulation exercise was conducted to understand the principles behind ‘conflict’ and how one could relate & respond to it?

Mr Alex Jeeva

Interviewer: Good evening Mr. Alex, tell us about yourself!

Alex:  I’m from Tirpur and presently pursuing final year B.Tech CSE. My short term goal was to find an opportunity to explore a role (job) that would help in utilising my skills to benefit the organisation. And my long term goal is to become a well renowned person in the respective field. I see myself as a honest, adaptable and a good team member. I try to view things positively. Apart from technical and academics; cricket, badminton and listening to music is something I enjoy on regular basis. I have a younger sister pursuing 12th standard and mother taking care of business and family.

Interviewer: Interesting to know that you enjoy multitasking. Let’s move to our next question, why did you choose to apply for Kaar Technologies?

Alex: (Thinks and smiles) I see that the future depends on integrating things which could make objects/system accessible in easiest and effective way. Kaar Technologies is an SAP based software company whose clients are from across the globe. They provide business solutions and make their task easier. This idea of making human effort easier to contribute larger to the society made me choose Kaar. I also think SAP domain is lucrative from a career perspective.

Interviewer: Your views are interesting! What were the different rounds conducted?

Alex: Rounds were Aptitude, GD, Technical cum HR and final round with the Delivery Head of the unit. The aptitude round consisted of 60 questions that had logical, quantitative and business english. I assume about 25% were applicants were shortlisted. The next round was GD with 7 or 8 members in the group. The topic was related to ‘Jio’. The next rounds were stressful because of the continual questions with limited scope to think or to react on the responses/ feedback. The final round was about 50 minutes with interesting scenario thrown to present ideas/views. For example, ‘if you were a team lead and need to answer a client in absence of delivery head on the postponement of the project, how would you handle?’ ; Tell me about SAP, Kaar and its competitors? ; Tell me about your native place.

Interviewer: What is/are your take away from the process?

Alex: It was a good experience interacting the members. I realised that more the questions came, self confidence was getting better. A good preparation on resume and answering the scenarios in best possible way at moment worked it for me.

Interviewer: What are your suggestions for future aspirants?

Alex: Being aware of things happening across the globe and presence of mind could make difference to one during recruitment. Learning beyond academics seemed to have paid for me and I believe it will be others as well. Being confident to express oneself because ‘you know yourself better.’

Interviewer: Thank you Alex for sharing your insights. I hope it will help the readers and aspirants. Wishing you a great life and career with Kaar Technologies.

Alex: (smiles) Thank you too!

BUGman Book Review – Hariharan


image-12BUGman

Thanks for the authors for giving the scenario that happens inside the IT industry. Freshers will be benefited by this man (BUGman book). I’m sure that all the bugs which are in the minds of software aspirants will be corrected after meeting this man (reading this book). It also very interesting to read that’s because of the authors Sa&Sa for giving this in a funny way. All students interested in software must have to read to give up their fears during their interview time. – Hariharan, 3rd Year ECE 

Hey Hero


“Mankind would like to live and die a life of a Hero”

The way feet runs holding breathe to see the movie without missing titles from beginning. Why don’t we see students run to attend the classes? The same student run to watch the movie without a blink. Can we relate time to entertainment? Why one needs to get entertained? Perhaps changing paradigm shift call for newer approaches. If one want to live and die a life of Hero, one must become a hero! What does our Hero(ine) do in movies? They act, sing, dance, cry, laugh and so on. Can teachers be like hero(ine)?

What could possibly make one Hero(ine) of a class?

  1. Subject Knowledge
  2. Approach towards students
  3. Good heart
  4. Achievements (success of past to inspire students)
  5. Delivery (techniques)
  6. Mark (a magic wand?! nah!)

Let’s now look into components of a movie:

A movie consists of –

Characters, Story, Songs, Dance, Theme, Music and so on.

A class consists of – 

Interaction, Group Discussion, Puzzles, Role Plays, Cases, ICT, Humor, Application, Purpose, MCQ, Demo and so on.

A good movie consists of several things, can similar analogy true for a class? I feel possible true! Because the primary objective of a movie is entertain, similarly primary objective of a class is participation (from teachers perspective). In order to see a good participation a structure is vital-

  1. Introduction/Recap
  2. Content
  3. Break (?!)
  4. Content 2
  5. Summary/Assessment/ Reflection

The point 3 might seem out of context but lets not forget Indian movies demand a break too. It’s just about the interval break that leaves the viewers with a suspense/curiosity to return to their chair. It’s als
o break from a prologue. Break To Banta Hai Boss! But, why one does need a break?

‘Words are creation of man but God created sounds and visuals (nature).’
