Google Apps for small managements

Google... it has been innovating every time and I seemed to have fallen in love with their products. I am very keen to try out their 'beta' products and then decide which one is suitable. The latest one that impressed me is Google Apps and it seems to fit the bill for the small enterprises.

The best thing about Google Apps is

"Want simple, powerful communication and collaboration tools for your organization without the usual hassle and cost?"

The initiatives will helps primarily educational institutions, small businesses and personal groups who wants to network amongst themselves. These low cost solutions will help them to perform better.

Small and Medium sized Accounting firms usually rely on yahoo, gmail or hotmail for their internal and external communication. Their spending budget is not quite handsome. With google apps, they can spend Rs 495 to Rs 800 on domain name and then use the free Google Apps for all their employees. Track Meetings, Whereabouts of their employees and chat with their employees on Google Chat for those who are on travel.

I have been testing on my domain name and emails that I have created works pretty good. I have not redirected my url to google apps so far but created start up pages to test them. It looks good. I would probably use one of my domains for my family. So if you have a domain name registered, why not try Google Apps.

I found an article on the internet "Wrong About Google Apps" Read it.

Last but not the least, please share your thoughts, how best we can use the application for our education institutions and small businesses.

Poll : Does CIMA, UK qualification add value

Poll : Does pursuing CIMA, UK qualification add value to a member of ICWAI, India ? Vote on the poll and share your thoughts by commenting the blog. Poll: Vote here I feel that if you are a member of ICWAI and you pursue CIMA, UK qualification, you are not adding any value to your skills since you will be learning the same. Once you are qualified, you are still a Cost & Management Accountant but from UK. For an employer, I would still have same skills and training on Management Accounting. However if you pursue qualification like Company Secretary or CPA or ACCA , your skills are enhanced with the knowledge gained during training and passing of exams. After qualification, you are bound to follow the CPD programs of ICWAI and other institute. In competitive world, employer look for people with multiple skills. Which one promotes you as professional better against your name: AICWA, ACMA or AICWA, ACS or AICWA, CPA or AICWA, ACCA Widgets Regards, Santosh

Learning Curve Theory

Learning Curve Theory is concerned with the idea that when a new job, process or activity commences for the first time it is likely that the workforce involved will not achieve maximum efficiency immediately. Repetition of the task is likely to make the people more confident and knowledgeable and will eventually result in a more efficient and rapid operation. Eventually the learning process will stop after continually repeating the job. As a consequence the time to complete a task will initially decline and then stabilise once efficient working is achieved. The cumulative average time per unit is assumed to decrease by a constant percentage every time that output doubles. Cumulative average time refers to the average time per unit for all units produced so far, from and including the first one made. Major areas within management accounting where learning curve theory is likely to have consequences and suggest potential limitations of this theory. Areas of consequence: A Standard

Resistence to Change - Approaches of Kotter and Schlesinger

The Six (6) Change Approaches of Kotter and Schlesinger is a model to prevent, decrease or minimize resistance to change in organizations. According to Kotter and Schlesinger (1979), there are four reasons that certain people are resisting change : Parochial self-interest (some people are concerned with the implication of the change for themselves ad how it may effect their own interests, rather than considering the effects for the success of the business) Misunderstanding (communication problems; inadequate information) Low tolerance to change (certain people are very keen on security and stability in their work) Different assessments of the situation (some employees may disagree on the reasons for the change and on the advantages and disadvantages of the change process) Kotter and Schlesinger set out the following six (6) change approaches to deal with this resistance to cha
