What it takes to win!

June 8, 2007

My CIOL edit team (L-R): Shiv Shankar, Rashmi, Ambika, Abhigna, Radhika, Sigi, Manu and Usha. Missing: Idhries and Denzil.

My CIOL edit team (L-R): Shiv Shankar, Rashmi, Ambika, Abhigna, Radhika, Sigi, Manu and Usha. Missing: Idhries and Denzil.

Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork! The 3Ds — dedication, devotion and discipline! Backing up each other, looking out for each other, and most importantly, delivering on the roles each team member is specifically picked to do. That’s the secret of ‘what it takes to win.’ And that’s what my team did!

It’s my pleasure to speak about my team of mostly newcomers — Ambika, Usha, Radhika, Rashmi and Shiv Shankar, besides, Sigi and Abhigna, as well as Denzil. This ‘young’ team has pulled off something incredible that people can only dream about. May I also add Idhries, who contributed in his own manner earlier, and should be back to carry on his good work. Manu has just joined us!

This young team pulled off the magnificent accomplishment of launching the new CIOL Web site — which is actually a Web site hosting a whopping 15 sites! All in a matter of less than three months!
What’s more brilliant is some of these team members are not even two months or even a month old. What’s outstanding has been their resolve, determination and dedication to pull off this feat! With minimal supervision!!

Most of these guys have come from a print background. Some or rather most of them have never used a CMS ever before. Most of them have never experienced Web publishing up so close ever.

Nevertheless, when the time came for taking up a challenge, all of them were up for it. Some were scared, some looked hassled, but all were determined. And goodness me, look at what these guys have managed.

I really feel proud to be associated with such a great team. It’s such a young team that makes the feeling all the more wonderful! They know, what it takes to win!

Even the tech team — mainly Mohan, Sanjay and Raghu — left no stone unturned to deliver and answer or help with the endless queries we all had.

I sincerely hope our hard work is rewarded!

One word of caution for my ‘young’ team. Do not get carried away by success. Stiffer challenges lie ahead, so don’t be daunted and face those bravely.

    Thank you Pradeep, for acknowledging the good work but more importantly for encouraging us to dive into untested waters. And we could do it, knowing you had our backs. Thank you!

    Thanks Sigi… hope the team realized the importance of hard, tough work. As they say — it is your work, and work alone, that ALWAYS speaks for you! 🙂 Cheers!
