Interesting article on “how us as people may be getting in the way of own success”

Posted on April 17th, 2020 by Sanjit Anand ||Email This Post Email This Post

The Solution to a Tough Problem Isn’t to Overthink It

We all like to consider ourselves smart, but Raw intelligence is undoubtedly a huge asset, but it isn’t everything.

“When we get stuck on a problem, sometimes it’s because we’re overthinking it. Pay attention to when focused thinking isn’t getting you anywhere; perhaps it has turned into obsessing over the same answers or approaches.”

Consider whether experimenting with a new strategy or talking ideas through with others might be more likely to result in success. Take breaks to let your brain relax and get unstuck. Expand your range of skills for reaching insights and coming up with new ideas; don’t be someone who sees every problem as a nail because your only tool is a hammer. And when you do find yourself ruminating, disrupt it by doing a few minutes of an absorbing activity, such as a puzzle. This can be a surprisingly effective way to break your brain out of a rut.

Adapted from “5 Ways Smart People Sabotage Their Success,” by Alice Boyes.

This is a really interesting read and one of the reminders is the importance of emotional intelligence. In his Article highlightes 5 Ways Smart People Sabotage Their Success as below:

  1. Smart people sometimes devalue other skills, like relationship building, and over-concentrate on intellect.
  2. Teamwork can be frustrating for very smart people.
  3. Smart people often attach a lot of their self-esteem to being smart, which can decrease their resilience and lead to avoidance.
  4. Smart people get bored easily.
  5. Smart people sometimes see in-depth thinking and reflection as the solution to every problem.

How ambitious should you be?

Posted on April 15th, 2020 by Sanjit Anand ||Email This Post Email This Post

Nurturing a healthy level of ambition in the workplace can be a tricky thing, organisational consultant Ron Carucci writes. Very driven workers may inadvertently appear too greedy for success or unrealistic about their goals. On the flip side, those that don’t showcase their ambition adequately risk looking cautious or unwilling to improve.

Carucci offers the following framework for achieving success in a healthy, balanced manner.

  • What goals can I realistically attain through my own efforts? (Performance ambition)
  • What skill or knowledge will I need to improve or acquire? (Growth ambition)
  • What rewards do those I lead hope to gain as a result of our efforts? (Achievement ambition)

All questions above are for DIFFERENT areas of ambition; more, improving how leaders operate in business.

As you think about how to manage your career, came across a great article by Ron Carducci in HBR.

Highlights and hits on key points and attributes on ambition, self awareness, and asking and answering the important question every employee and leader may be asked….”How ambitious should you be?”

Which Finance processes is good for offshored/outsourced?

Posted on September 3rd, 2018 by Sanjit Anand ||Email This Post Email This Post

Which finance processes have been outsourced so far? What was the rationale behind it?

Great Question . Normally it’s the transactional finance processes that are outsourced such as – Accounts Payable, Receivable, General Ledger, Reporting & Master Data. The rationale is the labor arbitrage together with the existing expertise towards automation, digitalization that exists in an Outsourcing company. Also it allows having all processes in one single place, enabling standardization cross various company codes.

Heavily decision support processes such as Financial Analysis, Forecasting & Budgeting are more difficult to be outsourced due to the high expertise required (people from the business/domain may perform particular job for couple of years and knowledge could be difficult to be transferred in 2 or 3 months with is normally the length of the knowledge transfer period)

One of the major drawback , which you may take into consideration that in outsourcing there is usual a high attrition rate and knowledge gaps could occur for more complex processes, which were not subject to automation previously. Hope this make sense
