porter's model
by tushar gulhane on Jan 30, 2006 01:20 AM

Most management learning involves taking apart successful business practices and analysing them to see the reasons for the same. The analysis of the dabbawallahs success in terms of porters five models was very educative. Porters model itself is a succint explanation of microeconomic theories which we learn in mgt. Many a times however we implement these theories without understanding the philosophies behind them. Such examples definitely provide a better understanding of mgt fundas.

Man wanders for food and he gets it.But these men make the food to wander and reach men. These men who are uneducated with academic qualification are mor than graduates.The application mind,and knowledge about life, and sincere approach have made them to be remarked.
These people with out wrist watch are good in time management. I am not so great to praise them,but grateful to praise thek
thanks for redifffor bringing a news which alreadly I know.It has made me to experience a sweet news once more

theory....?
by kumar on Jan 27, 2006 10:49 AM

following is a stupid thing:

According to Manav Malik, a first year student of NITIE, "Porter's theories, which are the basis for classical management principles, define the scope and nature of competition a company faces to attain leadership. Surprisingly, the dabbawalas are following these very principles in spite of their ignorance of the same."

These dabbawalas "FELT", the socalled 'theory' of Porter, before his "invention"

This is the second time, I am reading.
this type of material. First time which? Guess yourself
