Admissions-2010 interviews at Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore were an interesting experience for TAPMI. Other teams did at Kolkata, Hyderabad and Manipal. All these were between 10th and 23rd April. The side experience was meeting host of Alumni as Panel Members as also in the Interactive Sessions. The response at Mumbai is unbelievable that as old as 1987 batch members appeared with family members to recall their nostalgic experiences two decades back and sharing their journey in the management and business / corporate world with the present generation management graduates.
It was an unexpected addition for me to travel to Bangalore to add up ten-days saga of Interviews as was done hitherto in Manipal only before. The continuation was to attend a three day Workshop cum Training on Blue Ocean Strategy on 22nd, 23rd and 24th April along with eight other colleagues from TAPMI and six senior Officials of Piaggio, Pune. Dr Bong and Ms Katrina kept us busy all the three days with discussions sessions, Case Discussions, Group Tasks, Presentations and so on. It is interesting to know that Dr Bong is setting up a Centre in India with a tie up with TAPMI, Manipal for propogating on Blue Ocean Strategy.
