“Only by engaging with customers in a more meaningful way, using technology, will organizations be able to drive and sustain business growth.” PANKAJ GUPTA, ARKADIN


Dear Next CIO, Congratulations! You are now a part of an elite group that will drive the future of businesses—in the times to come. Arkadin is proud to be a part of the NEXT100 initiative to helping identify and nurture the CIOs of tomorrow. Every CIO today knows that the job is becoming more and more complex. Earlier, technology implied the back office, IT infrastructure and stuffy server rooms. Today technology is the foundation, and it underpins the functioning of every business activity. The CIO of today is not only responsible for designing, owning and maintaining a highly robust and scalable IT infrastructure, but is also a key member of the team that defines and executes forward-looking business strategies for the business. The IT managers of today will be successful CIOs of tomorrow if they can be nimble, agile and highly flexible. They will have to be ready to learn and unlearn, adapt and adopt a wide variety of technologies and processes including cloud, collaboration, data analytics, mobile, web and social media in ways that will help business deliver value to customers. Only by engaging with customers in a more meaningful way, using technology, will organizations be able to drive and sustain business growth. The CIOs of tomorrow will need to become Customer Centric, and employ technology to take the business closer to the customer—any time, any place and anyhow. Once again, I congratulate all of you on being selected as the future CIOs of India and wish you great success in your careers.

Best Wishes

Dear Friends, On behalf of the team at IT NEXT and 9.9 Mediaworx, it gives me great pleasure to bring you the 2013 edition of the book that highlights the future CIOs of India—the NEXT100. As in the past years, the fourth edition of the book is an outcome of a sixmonth long process that was announced in mid-June 2013. The principal objective of the NEXT 100 program is help aspiring CIOs and senior IT managers become professionally successful. The awards program aims to bring to the forefront experienced IT managers who have the skills, talent and spirit to become CIOs. The intensive three-stage selection process commences with self nomination for awards by applicants; administration of psychometric tests that diagnose personality traits and leadership styles; personal interviews and reference checks. As in the past years, the jury members decided selection criteria, and interviewed all short listed candidates. The final list of award winners was generated through a proprietary scoring model that employs calibrated weights to various factors. This book introduces the people who made it to the final list. It celebrates their entry into the club of India’s future CIOs—and into the fraternity of technology leaders. We look forward to hearing about their continued success in the years to come. While a select few have made it to the NEXT 100 list this year, I would like thank the entire IT manager community for the unstinted support, encouragement and active participation in all NEXT 100 related activities. I would also like to acknowledge with thanks the contributions made by the members of the NEXT100 awards jury who took an active part in shaping in this program. They have spent many hours reviewing the selection process, making suggestions and actively guiding the outcome. Finally, I would like to thank all our sponsors who made the 2013 edition of the NEXT 100 program possible. Without their commitment and involvement it would have been hard to sustain this program. Sincerely,

Vikas Gupta

Director, 9.9 Media & Publisher, IT NEXT

METHODOLOGY The selection of the fourth cohort of NEXT100 award winners commenced in late in June 2013. The entire IT manager community was invited to apply, through a series of e-mails and print advertisements. By the closing date, more than 1,700 aspirants had registered for the rigorous process. As in the past year, the selection of the award winners was a three-stage process. In the first stage, all aspirants were required to complete a detailed application form—and provide personal and professional information, including education, technical skills and work experience. The second stage was the testing stage, where all award aspirants took psychometric tests that evaluated their personality profiles and leadership styles. Both tests were administered by Paris-based Central Test, and the test reports identify the work attributes, leadership and managerial style of the applicants. All applicants who completed the two tests received a free copy of the detailed assessment report. Using a set of criteria defined by the NEXT100 jury, a short list of candidates was identified for interview. Every shortlisted candidate was independently interviewed by two jury members. Separately, independent recommendations were solicited from each candidate’s designated referees. The scores and evaluations assigned to all candidates in every stage of the selection process were input into a proprietary scoring model that assigns carefully calibrated weights to various factors. The final list of award winners was created as an outcome of this scoring model. To ensure that the NEXT 100 awards are completely fair and unbiased, no member of the editorial team is involved in the selection or elimination of the award winners, nor are editors and staff of IT Next magazine a part of the jury panel. As in past years, the NEXT100 awards program draws on the knowledge and support of the CIO and CFO communities. Fifty-one senior executives, who collectively represent many hundreds of years experience in IT and management, were involved as advisors and selectors this year. The jury panel debated, deliberated and decided on the award winner selection process—and conducted detailed interviews of all shortlisted applicants.

NEXT100 | December 2013

PERSONALITY TEST & MANAGERIAL STYLE INVENTORY TEST In the stage 2 of the NEXT100 application process, all aspirants were administered two tests—a personality test and a managerial style test. Both tests are administered by Paris-based Central Test. The Central Test Personality Inventory for Professionals (CTPI-R) test provides an assessment of work related personality traits that play a crucial role in performance. According to the test designers, CTPI-R conforms to the standards of scientific validation set out by the International Test Commission, and the American Psychological Association. The workplace competencies are conceptualized as “clusters of knowledge, skills and attitudes that are predictive of superior performance in a given job”. According to Central Test, the competency scores in the CTPI-R are not a ‘direct assessment’ of competencies but an ‘assessment of proximity’ of the test taker to the profile of others who have demonstrated a high level of that particular competency. The assumption behind this method is that people with similar profiles will be more likely to exhibit

similar abilities. The scores on each competency also give an indication of the extent to which the person is trainable on each competency. As the score are derived from an assessment of proximity to an ideal profile, they give an indication of the extent to which the candidate is psychologically inclined towards high performance on a specific competency. The second test, the Management Style Inventory Test, assesses a candidate’s aptitude for leadership and identifies their managerial style. Based on seven primary management dimensions (Innovation, Global Vision, Conceptual, Reflective, Affiliation, Intervention and People-Oriented), the test compares the candidate’s profile to typical management roles, including those of Chief Executive, Motivator, Project Manager, Entrepreneur, Expert, Strategist and Executive Manager.


PERSONALITY PROFILE

WORKPLACE COMPETENCIES The CTPI-R test has been standardized on an international group of 5000+ working and managerial professionals. The test uses a continuous scale of 0 to 100% to deduce 21 competencies that are relevant in the workplace. The conclusions are based on statistical studies and theoretical models. This year’s NEXT100 award winners exhibited high scores on competencies like Challenge Orientation, Reliability , Mentoring Others and Authenticity, and scored relatively lower on Caution, Supervision and Influencing.

A collective analysis of the personality characteristics of the NEXT100 award winners indicates that they scored high on attributes like Assertiveness, Tactical, Rational, Emotional Stability and Vision, while scoring relatively lower on Trust, Adaptability, Developing Others, and Action Orientation.

People Management Perception Mode Self Management NEXT100 Winners

Other Applicants

The test results are reported on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 implying a low level and 10 implying a high level of conformance to the behavioral characteristic.

The CTPI-R test provides an assessment of work related personality traits that play a crucial role in performance. It evaluates test takers on 19 distinct personality and behavioral characteristics that are grouped into: People Management, Perception Mode, Self Management and Change Management.

CREATING HAPPY CUSTOMERS BY BUILDING A DYNAMIC ORGANIZATION WITH HAPPY EMPLOYEES! By Pankaj Gupta & Dr Raj Kumar Sharma

48

NEXT100 | December 2013


A happy employee in an organization is likely to be more productive and more creative. When an organization provides an environment that is conducive to freedom of expression, it gives them a sense of ownership and empowerment. This factor alone can be a big difference between an employee and a Happy Employee.

W

ith proper grooming and a culture of open communication, employees will be able to go beyond the regular and that extra mile that makes all the difference in customer satisfaction.

Recent research shows that 70% of buying experiences are based on how the customers feel they are being treated! So it is no surprise that loving customers have a significant impact on whether they choose to do business with you again, thus having a measurable impact on the bottom line. The customer of today is an ‘Infovore’. Before doing business with you, a huge majority of customers will now use the information available on the web to find out a plethora of things about the organisation and the service quality. This highly informed customer

isn’t going away anytime soon. In fact, today’s digital world has made it better than ever for honest, upstanding businesses, who very well take care of their customers to succeed in a world where most companies fall short.

Some of the well-known and most common mistakes, that leaders make today are: 1. Getting business and closing deals is on top of their mind. 2. Spend too much time in monitoring and collecting the data instead of focusing on developing the sales team

3. Driving the number of calls per day each sales person should make instead of quality of calls. 4. No focus on leading by example and creating role models. 5. Being too transactional. “Manager-Employee Relationship” is the key to building a dynamic happy sales organization. The number one reason why employees leave or are not able to perform is because of their managers and should be the key food for thought. Most organizations are customer centric and feel that a happy customer is the key to success. However this is the result of an organization with happy and motivated employees. It is important to understand that a happy and motivated employee is the catalyst in ensuring customer delight. We all know, customer is the most important thing when it comes to business for any company. The

secret to happy, engaged employees is treating them like individuals, nurturing their growth and enabling autonomy to be creative, take initiatives, and generally be free to be great at their work. Any positive working relationship is based on trust. An environment of trust assumes that both parties will be safe, and it carries with it an implicit message that you have each other’s best interests in mind. That is when employees can accept criticism and even anger from a boss they trust. The employees know deep down that the boss really means to help. Without trust in the workplace, communication and teamwork will erode. Additionally, morale will decrease while turnover will rise. However, by creating happy employees you can build employees’ trust in management, thereby making their workplace an environment December 2013 | NEXT100

filled with innovation, creativity, and ultimately higher profits and happy customers. Leaders need to be proactive in creating an environment of trust apparent to all. So how do we build trust amongst employees?

Being Role model An employee always looks up to his or her manager as role model and hence a manager should be a perfect combination of knowledge and leadership qualities. He should be the right combination of being a boss and a friend with his or her subordinates. Set example of success by leading them from front rather than just being an advisor. Is able to strategize and provide solutions to successfully manage various sales and customer situations. Apart for this he should spend quality time with employees with the objective of building and grooming them, it’s not enough just to be present for meetings and other essential tasks and at the same time being honest to them. Remember that honesty is the best policy. When you lie to employees, you erode their trust, and that erosion of trust results in a damaged relationship. Even when telling the truth is difficult, bite the bullet - they may not like what you have to say, but your employees will appreciate you.

Inter Personal Skills People come from different places and backgrounds at the work place without knowing history or back ground of each other. It is important for a leader to understand each employee and their personal environments understanding are really important. It is equally important to develop relationship and rapport with each employee and to achieve this, a leader should be the right

NEXT100 | December 2013

“Great service and customer delight is only delivered by satisfied and happy employees” combination of boss and friend. Good interpersonal relations can get things done faster and more effectively .If you want to have good relationship with your employees, you have to be there for the ups and downs. Having a friendly relationship with your workers can be a desirable thing, as relationship of this sort makes the workplace more comfortable one. Being close friends with your employees, on the other hand, could be a poor choice. A proper balance between professional and personal relationship between the employee and manager is the recipe for success.

in the work place but also amongst customers. A leader should communicate and remove all roadblocks for employees to approach him or her. If a leader wants to build an effective employee relationship, he should try to communicate in a transparent manner regarding what is expected out of them, give the right feedback at the right time and on regular intervals by citing examples and how to improve. This helps in developing the capabilities and imposes trust and confidence in the manager. Only criticism without feedback may just go opposite.

Be Accessible and Communicate openly

Inclusion

Have an open door policy. If employees feel comfortable coming to you with new ideas, concerns, or, in the worst-case scenario, complaints, then it’s easier to establish the natural give-and-take that comes with strong relationships. Many organizations fail to retain employees or not able to create a healthy work environment because their managers are difficult to access and are not able to communicate with them openly. This only builds frustration amongst employees and a unhappy employee creates more unhappiness not only

Include employees in important decisions whenever possible. When employees work together to create policy, set organizational goals, choose the tools they need to work and make other decisions integral to the organization, they feel valued and important to the organization and to you. In other words empower your employees, but this may take time as empowerment is based on trust between manager and employees.

Be Fair & Resolve Conflicts As a leader it is important to treat all your employees with equal

fairness. Any bias to a particular employee could be detrimental to the manager’s image of being a role model and building trust. Have a positive attitude towards all employees. Instead of allowing your preferences to be known, treat all employees the same, showing them all that they are equally valuable and appreciated within the workplace. Normally conflicts do arise in the workplace between employees or employee and manager .As a good leader and leader do not let it grow , rather as a true leader and as a concerned manager you should proactively resolve the situation by listening and understanding the issue from both sides .

VMware (NYSE:VMW), the industryleading virtualization software company, empowers organizations to innovate and thrive by streamlining IT operations. By virtualizing infrastructure—from the data center to the cloud to mobile devices—VMware enables IT to deliver services from any device, anytime, anywhere. VMware is radically transforming IT with technologies that make your business more agile, efficient and profitable. A pioneer in virtualization and policydriven automation, VMware simplifies IT complexity across the entire data center. Our organization delivers value to more than 500,000 customers through virtualization software, professional services and a robust ecosystem of more than 55,000 partners that drives application interoperability and customer choice. Gartner, Inc. has recently placed VMware in the Leaders Quadrant in its 2013 report, “Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure.”

VMware’s Growth Strategy VMware’s strategy is firmly in place with its three growth priorities,

96

NEXT100 | December 2013

enabling the Software Defined Datacenter, delivering a true Hybrid Cloud and End User Computing. VMware is on a multi-year journey as it guides customer’s technology and business transformation. VMware believes this IT transformation presents a $50 billion total addressable market opportunity by 2016.

The Software Defined Datacenter The vision of the software-defined datacenter is the way of the future. It extends the concepts of virtualization to all datacenter resources and services—including compute, storage, availability, networking and security. It promises to dramatically speed up and simplify the initial provisioning and ongoing management of these fully virtualized resources and services by applying powerful policy-driven automation. The result is greater agility, delivered by the most efficient, reliable and flexible datacenter architecture for the future. The company recently announced new capabilities and enhancements across its portfolio of cloud management solutions to

simplify and automate management of IT services for multiple clouds and platforms along with new product releases such as VMware NSX and VMware Virtual SAN which will fundamentally redefine the hypervisor and its role in the data center.

Hybrid Cloud VMware launched the vCloud Hybrid Service (vCHS) in the first half of 2013. The company announced the general availability of the new VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™ with new data center locations across the US and Europe with general availability for the APAC region early next year, and new capabilities to make it simple to bring existing and new cloud-native applications to the public cloud. VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, built on VMware vSphere®, enables customers to extend the same applications, networking, management, operations and tools across both on-premises and off-premises environments.

End User Computing And finally, the company is also aggressively focusing on the end

user computing business, a natural extension of the core principles of virtualization to create a truly virtual workspace for seamless connection across any device, any workload, and any cloud. The VMware Horizon Suite is a comprehensive platform for workforce mobility using virtualization to transform silos of data, applications, and desktops, and to centralize the IT services. The company unveiled new capabilities and partnerships that further simplify IT’s ability to support the growing mobile workforce with a combination of new desktop-as-a service, VMware Ready™ smartphones, a growing community of desktop and mobile partners, and integrated device and workspace management.
