Who will be a better Accountant - Shahrukh Khan or Aamir Khan ?

Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan are two famous personalities in Bollywood. Both are equally successful and have a huge fan following. It depends upon what you consider success? Is it female fan following or fame or money. Never mind !!!

I am looking at the traits each one has. Then let you decide who will be a better accountant. Please use your imagination which one is more suitable to be a successful management accountant.

Shahrukh Khan

  • Mostly acts in movies that have contemporary themes.
  • Mostly works with a same set of people and makes movies with them and repeats the success.
  • He has a good PR and he tours around the world. All the tours are well publicized giving the details of what he eats, whom he meets and when he goes to sleep. This makes him known and people are interested in his next movie release.
  • He is approachable and gives frequent interview on TVs.
  • He started as a TV star. Sometimes he host TV quiz shows.
  • People know him very well since he acts in TV commercials. He makes good use of TV as a medium to maintain his popularity.
  • Sometimes experiments with movies with a different story and that gets him noticed.
  • Dances very well and challenges anyone to dance with him.

Aamir Khan

  • Some say he is a tough guy and he goes into minute details during movie making.
  • His movies are innovative, different, story oriented and at the same time convey social theme. More focused on reality.
  • He does not socialize and hates interviews.
  • He prefers that his work talks for himself rather than him.
  • He does not believe in awards like Filmfare but attempts for Oscars.
  • He can dance very well in movies but he does not tour or dance in shows. So general public do not know whether he is interesting or boring.
  • He makes few movies but they are blockbusters.
  • He always gives opportunities to new people in his movies and repeats his success with new set of people.

Aamir and Sharukh Khan are successful personalities in Bollywood. To summarise the traits above are leadership style, team management, self promotion, work and standards/ethics. Both the actors are successful using these traits to a different degree.

Please vote on who will be a successful accountant in a corporate environment depending on the traits they display.

    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

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
