OVERVIEW OF THE
INDUSTRY

The Indian Telecom Industry


The telecom network in India is the fifth largest network in the world meeting up
with global standards. Presently, the Indian telecom industry is currently slated to an
estimated contribution of nearly 1% to Indias GDP.

Introduction
The Indian Telecommunications network with 110.01 million connections is the fifth
largest in the world and the second largest among the emerging economies of Asia.
Today, it is the fastest growing market in the world and represents unique
opportunities for U.S. companies in the stagnant global scenario. The total subscriber
base, which has grown by 40% in 2006, is expected to reach 250 million by 2008.
According to Broadband Policy 2004, Government of India aims at 9 million
broadband connections and 18 million internet connections by 2008. The wireless
subscriber base has jumped from 33.69 million in 2005 to 62.57 million in FY20052008. In the last 3 years, two out of every three new telephone subscribers were
wireless subscribers. Consequently, wireless now accounts for 54.6% of the total
telephone subscriber base, as compared to only 40% in 2004. Wireless subscriber
growth is expected to bypass 2.5 million new subscribers per month by 2008. The
wireless technologies currently in use are Global System for Mobile Communications
(GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). There are primarily 9 GSM and 5
CDMA operators providing mobile services in 19 telecom circles and 4 metro cities,
covering 2000 towns across the country.
Telecom Industry in India ' is regulated by 'Telecom Regulatory Authority of India'
(TRAI). It has earned good reputation for transparency and competence. Three types of
players exists in ' Telecom Industry India ' community

State owned companies like - BSNL and MTNL.


Private Indian owned companies like - Reliance Infocomm and Tata Teleservices.
Foreign invested companies like - Hutchison-Essar, Bharti Tele-Ventures, Escotel,
Idea Cellular, BPL Mobile, Spice Communications etc.

Major Players
BSNL
On October 1, 2000 the Department of Telecom Operations, Government of India
became a corporation and was renamed Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL).
BSNL is now Indias leading telecommunications company and the largest public
sector undertaking. It has a network of over 45 million lines covering 5000 towns
with over 35 million telephone connections.
The state-controlled BSNL operates basic, cellular (GSM and CDMA) mobile, Internet
Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

and long distance services throughout India (except Delhi and Mumbai). BSNL will be
expanding the network in line with the Tenth Five-Year Plan (1992-97). The aim is to
provide a telephone density of 9.9 per hundred by March 2007. BSNL, which became
the third operator of GSM mobile services in most circles, is now planning to
overtake Bharti to become the largest GSM operator in the country. BSNL is also the
largest operator in the Internet market, with a share of 21 per cent of the entire
subscriber base.
BHARTI
Established in 1985, Bharti has been a pioneering force in the telecom sector with
many firsts and innovations to its credit, ranging from being the first mobile service
in Delhi, first private basic telephone service provider in the country, first Indian
company to provide comprehensive telecom services outside India in Seychelles and
first private sector service provider to launch National Long Distance Services in
India. Bharti Tele-Ventures Limited was incorporated on July 7, 1995 for promoting
investments in telecommunications services. Its subsidiaries operate telecom
services across India. Bhartis operations are broadly handled by two companies: the
Mobility group, which handles the mobile services in 16 circles out of a total 23
circles across the country; and the Infotel group, which handles the NLD, ILD, fixed
line, broadband, data, and satellite-based services. Together they have so far
deployed around 23,000 km of optical fiber cables across the country, coupled with
approximately 1,500 nodes, and presence in around 200 locations. The group has a
total customer base of 6.45 million, of which 5.86 million are mobile and 588,000
fixed line customers, as of January 31, 2004. In mobile, Bhartis footprint extends
across 15 circles.
Bharti Tele-Ventures' strategic objective is to capitalize on the growth opportunities
the company believes are available in the Indian telecommunications market and
consolidate its position to be the leading integrated telecommunications services
provider in key markets in India, with a focus on providing mobile services.
MTNL
MTNL was set up on 1st April 1986 by the Government of India to upgrade the
quality of telecom services, expand the telecom network, introduce new services and
to raise revenue for telecom development needs of Indias key metros Delhi, the
political capital, and Mumbai, the business capital. In the past 17 years, the company
has taken rapid strides to emerge as Indias leading and one of Asias largest
telecom operating companies. The company has also been in the forefront of
technology induction by converting 100% of its telephone exchange network into the
state-of-the-art digital mode. The Govt. of India currently holds 56.25% stake in the
company. In the year 2003-04, the company's focus would be not only consolidating
the gains but also to focus on new areas of enterprise such as joint ventures for
projects outside India, entering into national long distance operation, widening the
cellular and CDMA-based WLL customer base, setting up internet and allied services
on an all India basis.
Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

MTNL has over 5 million subscribers and 329,374 mobile subscribers. While the
market for fixed wireline phones is stagnating, MTNL faces intense competition from
the private playersBharti, Hutchison and Idea Cellular, Reliance Infocommin
mobile services. MTNL recorded sales of Rs. 60.2 billion ($1.38 billion) in the year
2002-03, a decline of 5.8 per cent over the previous years annual turnover of Rs.
63.92 billion.
RELIANCE INFOCOMM
Reliance is a $16 billion integrated oil exploration to refinery to power and textiles
conglomerate (Source: http://www.ril.com/newsitem2.html). It is also an integrated
telecom service provider with licenses for mobile, fixed, domestic long distance and
international services. Reliance Infocomm offers a complete range of telecom
services, covering mobile and fixed line telephony including broadband, national and
international long distance services, data services and a wide range of value added
services and applications. Reliance IndiaMobile, the first of Infocomm's initiatives
was launched on December 28, 2002. This marked the beginning of Reliance's vision
of ushering in a digital revolution in India by becoming a major catalyst in improving
quality of life and changing the face of India. Reliance Infocomm plans to extend its
efforts beyond the traditional value chain to develop and deploy telecom solutions for
India's farmers, businesses, hospitals, government and public sector organizations.
Until recently, Reliance was permitted to provide only limited mobility services
through its basic services license. However, it has now acquired a unified access
license for 18 circles that permits it to provide the full range of mobile services. It
has rolled out its CDMA mobile network and enrolled more than 6 million subscribers
in one year to become the countrys largest mobile operator. It now wants to
increase its market share and has recently launched pre-paid services. Having
captured the voice market, it intends to attack the broadband market.
TATA TELESERVICES
Tata Teleservices is a part of the $12 billion Tata Group, which has 93 companies,
over 200,000 employees and more than 2.3 million shareholders. Tata Teleservices
provides basic (fixed line services), using CDMA technology in six circles:
Maharashtra (including Mumbai), New Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat,
and Karnataka. It has over 800,000 subscribers. It has now migrated to unified
access licenses, by paying a Rs. 5.45 billion ($120 million) fee, which enables it to
provide fully mobile services as well.
The company is also expanding its footprint, and has paid Rs. 4.17 billion ($90
million) to DoT for 11 new licenses under the IUC (interconnect usage charges)
regime. The new licenses, coupled with the six circles in which it already operates,
virtually gives the CDMA mobile operator a national footprint that is almost on par
with BSNL and Reliance Infocomm. The company hopes to start off services in these
11 new circles by August 2004. These circles include Bihar, Haryana, Himachal
Pradesh, Kerala, Kolkata, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh (East) & West
and West Bengal.

VSNL
On April 1, 1986, the Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL) - a wholly Government
owned corporation - was born as successor to OCS. The company operates a network
of earth stations, switches, submarine cable systems, and value added service nodes
to provide a range of basic and value added services and has a dedicated work force
of about 2000 employees. VSNL's main gateway centers are located at Mumbai, New
Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai. The international telecommunication circuits are derived
via Intelsat and Inmarsat satellites and wide band submarine cable systems e.g.
FLAG, SEA-ME-WE-2 and SEA-ME-WE-3.
The company's ADRs are listed on the New York Stock Exchange and its shares are
listed on major Stock Exchanges in India. The Indian Government owns
approximately 26 per cent equity, M/s Panatone Finvest Limited as investing vehicle
of Tata Group owns 45 per cent equity and the overseas holding (inclusive of FIIs,
ADRs, Foreign Banks) is approximately 13 per cent and the rest is owned by Indian
institutions and the public. The company provides international and Internet services
as well as a host of value-added services. Its revenues have declined from Rs. 70.89
billion ($1.62 billion) in 2001-02 to Rs. 48.12 billion ($1.1 billion) in 2002-03, with
voice revenues being the mainstay. To reverse the falling revenue trend, VSNL has
also started offering domestic long distance services and is launching broadband
services. For this, the company is investing in Tata Telservices and is likely to
acquire Tata Broadband.
HUTCH
Hutchs presence in India dates back to late 1992, when they worked with local
partners to establish a company licensed to provide mobile telecommunications
services in Mumbai. Commercial operations began in November 1995. Between 2000
and March 2004, Hutch acquired further operator equity interests or operating
licences. With the completion of the acquisition of BPL Mobile Cellular Limited in
January 2006, it now provides mobile services in 16 of the 23 defined licence areas
across the country.
Hutch India has benefited from rapid and profitable growth in recent years. it had
over 17.5 million customers by the end of June 2006.
IDEA
Indian regional operator IDEA Cellular Ltd. has a new ownership structure and grand
designs to become a national player, but in doing so is likely to become a thorn in
the side of Reliance Communications Ltd. IDEA operates in eight telecom circles, or
regions, in Western India, and has received additional GSM licenses to expand its
network into three circles in Eastern India -- the first phase of a major expansion
plan that it intends to fund through an IPO, according to parent company Aditya Birla
Group .

Revenue Chart of Telecom Companies

Telecom Policy Environment


Indian telecommunications today benefits from among the most enlightened
regulation in the region, and arguably in the world. The sector, sometimes
considered the poster-boy for economic reforms, has been among the chief
beneficiaries of the post-1991 liberalization. Unlike electricity, for example, where
reforms have been stalled, telecommunications has generally been seen as removed

Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

from mass concerns, and thus less subject to electoral calculations. Market oriented
reforms have also been facilitated by lobbying from Indias booming
technology sector, whose continued success of course depends on the quality of
communications infrastructure.
Despite several hiccups along the way, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India
(TRAI), the independent regulator, has earned a reputation for transparency and
competence. With the recent resolution of a major dispute between cellular and fixed
operators (see below), Indian telecommunications, already among the most
competitive markets in the world, appears set to continue growing rapidly.
While telecom liberalization is usually associated with the post-1991 era, the seeds
of reform were actually planted in the 1980s. At that time, Rajiv Gandhi proclaimed
his intention of leading India into the 21st century, and carved the Department of
Telecommunications (DOT) out of the Department of Posts and Telegraph. For a time
he also even considered corporatizing the DOT, before succumbing to union pressure. In
a compromise, Gandhi created two DOT-owned corporations: Mahanagar Telephone
Nigam Limited (MTNL), to serve Delhi and Bombay, and Videsh Sanchar Nigam
Limited (VSNL), to operate international telecom services. He also introduced private
capital into the manufacturing of telecommunications equipment, which had previously
been a DOT monopoly.
These and other reforms were limited by the unstable coalition politics of the late 1980s.
It was not until the early 1990s, when the political situation stabilized, and with the
general momentum for economic reforms, that telecommunications liberalization really
took off. In 1994, the government released its National Telecommunications Policy
(NTP-94), which allowed private fixed operators to take part in the Indian market for the
first time (cellular operators had been allowed into the four largest metropolitan centers in
1992). Under the governments new policy, India was divided into 20 circles roughly
corresponding to state boundaries, each of which would contain two fixed operators
(including the incumbent), and two mobile operators.
As ground-breaking as NTP-94 was, its implementation was unfortunately marred by
regulatory uncertainty and over-bidding. A number of operators were unable to live
up to their profligate bids and, confronted with far less lucrative networks than they
had supposed, pulled out of the country. As a result, competition in Indias telecom
sector did not really become a reality until 1999. At that time the governments New
Telecommunications Policy (NTP-99) switched from a fixed fee license to a
revenuesharing regime of approximately 15%. This figure has subsequently been lowered
(to10%-12%), and is expected to be reduced even further over the coming years. Still,
India continues to derive substantial revenue from license fees ($800 million in
2001-2002), leading some critics to suggest that the government has abrogated its
responsibilities as a regulator to those as a seller. Another, perhaps even more significant,
problem with Indias initial attempts to introduce competition was the lack of regulatory
clarity. Private operators complained that the licensor the DOT was also the
incumbent operator. The many stringent conditions attached to licenses were thus seen by
many as the DOTs attempt to limit competition. It was in response to such concerns that

Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

the government in 1997 set up the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the
nations first independent telecom regulator.
Over the years, TRAI has earned a growing reputation for independence, transparency
and an increasing level of competence. Early on, however, the regulator was beleaguered
on all fronts. It had to contend with political interference, the incumbents many
challenges to its authority, and accusations of ineptitude by private players. Throughout
the late 1990s, TRAIs authority was steadily whittled away in a number of cases, when
the courts repeatedly held that regulatory power lay with the central government. It was
not until 2000, with the passing of the TRAI Amendment Act, that the regulatory body
really came into its own. Coming just a year after NTP-99, the act marks something of a
watershed moment in the history of India telecom liberalization. It set the stage for
several key events that have enabled the vigorous competition witnessed today. Some of
these events include: The corporatization of the DOT and the creation of a new stateowned telecom company, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL), in 2000;
The opening up of Indias internal long-distance market in 2000, and the subsequent
drop in long-distance rates as part of TRAIs tariff rebalancing exercise;
The termination of VSNLs monopoly over international traffic in 2002, and the partial
privatization of the company that same year, with the Tata group assuming a 25% stake
and management control;
The gradual easing of the original duopoly licensing policy, allowing a greater number
of operators in each circle;
The legalization, in 2002, of IP telephony (a move that many believe was held up due to
lobbying by VSNL, which feared the consequences on its international monopoly);
The introduction in 2003 of a Calling Party Pays (CPP) system for cell phones, despite
considerable opposition (including litigation) by fixed operators;
And, more generally, the commencement of more stringent interconnection regulation
by TRAI, which has moved from an interoperatornegotiations-based approach (often
used by the stronger operator to negotiate ad infinitum) to a more rules-based approach.
All of these events have created an impressive forward-momentum in Indian
telecommunications, resulting in a vigorously competitive and fast-growing sector. India
has also suffered from its fair share of regulatory hiccups. Many operators (mobile
players in particular) still complain about the difficulties of gaining access to the
incumbents (BSNL) network, and the governments insistence on capping FDI in the
telecom sector to 49% (a move made in the name of national security) limits capital
availability and thus network rollout. In addition, ISPs, who were allowed into the market
under a liberal licensing regime in 1998, continue to hemorrhage money, and have been
pleading with the government for various forms of relief, including the provision of
unmetered phone numbers for Internet access. Despite initially impressive results, the
growth of Internet in the country has recently stalled, with only 8 million users.
Broadband penetration, too, remains tiny.

Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

Unified Licensing
But perhaps the biggest and, until recently, most intractable regulatory problem has
been the drawn-out battle over limited mobility telephony. This imbroglio began in
1999, when MTNL sought permission from TRAI to provide CDMA-based WLL
services with limited mobility. GSM cellular operators were soon up in arms, arguing
that limited mobility was simply a backdoor entry into their business. Moreover, fixed
operators had paid lower license and spectrum fees than cellular ones; were not required
to pay access charges for cell-to-fixed calls (unlike their cellular counterparts); and,
amidst accusations of cross-subsidization, were charging considerably lower rates than
the cellular operators. The resulting conflict dragged on in the courts and in the political
arena for years.
Fixed operators including new entrants Reliance and Tata Teleservices claimed that they
were being prevented from providing a cheap service that would drive penetration and be
of benefit to the common man; cellular players bitterly opposed what they perceived as
unequal regulatory treatment for two kinds of operators who were in fact offering the
same service. The real victim, of course, was the Indian telecommunications market,
which suffered from investor perceptions of regulatory confusion and operator infighting. In late 2002, for example, thousands of mobile users in New Delhi were for a
time cut off from the fixed-line network when MTNL shut down interconnection for
cellular companies. (MTNL later attributed the incident to a technical snag.)
It was not until late 2003 that the issue was finally resolved, under considerable
government pressure, when cellular operators agreed to withdraw their many cases
against the fixed-line operators. Fixed operators would in effect be allowed to enter
the mobile business; in return, the government granted cellular players several
concessions, including lower revenue-share arrangements estimated to total over
$210 million. Perhaps most notably, the government announced its intention to
adopt a unified access licensing regime, which would in the future provide a single,
technology-neutral license for fixed and cellular operators. The hope is that this
new license category will prevent a repeat of the recent controversy, and allow new
technologies to enter the Indian market without requiring a wholesale rewrite of
licensing laws.

Higher acceptance for wireless services


Indian customers are embracing mobile technology in a big way (an average of four
million subscribers added every month for the past six months itself). They prefer
wireless services compared to wire-line services, which is evident from the fact that
while the wireless subscriber base has increased at 75 percent CAGR from 2001 to
2006, the wire-line subscriber base growth rate is negligible during the same period.
In fact, many customers are returning their wire-line phones to their service
providers as mobile provides a more attractive and competitive solution. The main
drivers for this trend are quick service delivery for mobile connections, affordable

Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

pricing plans in the form of pre-paid cards and increased purchasing power among
the 18 to 40 years age group as well as sizeable middle class a prime market for this
service.
Some of the positive impacts of this trend are as follows. According to a study, 18
percent of mobile users are willing to change their handsets every year to newer
models with more features, which is good news for the handset vendors. The other
impact is that while the operators have only limited options to generate additional
revenues through value-added services from wire-line services, the mobile operators
have numerous options to generate non-voice revenues from their customers.
Some examples of value-added services are ring tones download, coloured ring back
tones, talking SMS, mobisodes (a brief video programme episode designed for
mobile phone viewing) etc. Moreover, there exists great opportunity for content
developers to develop applications suitable for mobile users like mobile gaming,
location based services etc. On the negative side, there is an increased threat of
virus spread through mobile data connections and Bluetooth technology in mobile
phones, making them unusable at times. This is good news for anti-virus solution
providers, who will gain from this trend.

Risk coming in the way


Hindu Business Line has given the top 10 risks.
Regulation and compliance : The regulatory authority in India has delayed the 3G
auction and sets up new guidelines every now and then. It has also given 3G license for
BSNL without giving it to other providers. Airtel and Vodafone which has launched
iPhone 3G phone were left in the dark with 3G phones without any 3G service.
Entry of 4-5 players : Licenses were granted to 6 new players. Unitech, Sistema, etc..
Sitema has started its operations under the name of MTS by providing 1 million minutes
free. New players and offers like these would seriously dent the expansion plans of
established players. All the players should think out of the box and come up with IDEAS.
Next thing would be consolidation in the industry which is already happening in the
telecom tower business.
Capital for expansion : This is the biggest criteria for smaller players. While there are no
smaller players, as the new players are backed up by some heavy-weights, expansion is
still tough. This is where sharing infrastructure comes into picture. Indus Towers is one
such example. BSNL has recently announced about leasing its towers. Initiatives like
these will help both the older and newer players to penetrate into new markets.
Attracting and managing talent and intellectual capital : This is a tough one. With
fierce competition comes the talent poaching. Companies should have some talent

Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

retention measures in place. Airtel has restructured its business into 9 verticals to retain
talent. Not every company can do the same but, that is one option.
Management of strategic partnerships : Providing free SMSs or call rates at 40 paise
per minute are no longer the differentiators. It is the value Added services which matter.
There were bunch of partnerships which happened in the last 2 months. AskLaila-Airtel
partnership for local search, AmarChitraKatha - Vodafone, IDEA and Bharat Matrimony
have tied up for VAS. BSNL has recently tied up with Hungama portal for music and
game downloads. Strategic partnerships like these should be nurtured and maintained.
Inappropriate processes and systems to support exponential business growth
experienced over past 4-5 years : This is where investing in IT and the right tools is
crucial. These are the operations that should be outsourcing so that the telecom
companies can focus on their core areas. Indian telecom companies should outsource
aggressively and focus on expanding their network and services.
Forecasting returns from technology and infrastructure investments
-Privacy and security risks
-Contain and reduce costs
Manage consolidation and mergers & acquisition : This would tie back to point #2 of
entry of new players and a possible consolidation in the telecom business and the tower
business.

Brief Profile of the Company-MTS


History of MTS
MTS was established in October 1993 by Moscow City Telephone Network (MGTS), TMobile Deutschland GmbH (T-Mobile), an affiliate of Deutsche Telekom AG, Siemens
AG (Siemens) and several other shareholders. In late 1996, Sistema JSFC acquired a
majority stake in MTS and has remained the primary owner ever since.
MTS was the first company to launch GSM services in the Moscow region in 1994. In
subsequent years, MTS has expanded rapidly in Russia largely through the acquisition of
smaller independent players and became the leading national mobile operator.
MTS initiated its international expansion in 2002 through the establishment of Mobile
TeleSystems LLC, a joint venture with Beltelecom, the national fixed line operator in
Belarus.
In 2003, MTS continued to expand in the CIS by acquiring the leading operator UMC in
Ukraine, the biggest CIS market outside of Russia.
MTS entered Central Asia in 2004 through the acquisition of the leading mobile phone
operator in Uzbekistan, Uzdunrobita. In June 2005, the Company acquired Barash
Communications Technologies, Inc., the number one operator in Turkmenistan.
In September 2007, MTS continued its international expansion through the acquisition of

Marketing Intelligence in Human Resources


Introduction
Provides real-time, accurate and comprehensive market data directly from your industry
peers to help you find the right suppliers. The metrics-based program helps HR
executives make better decisions by offering key data and information on trends,
innovations and suppliers in the HR space. The interactive, customizable and easy-to-use
HR Market Intelligence centers allows HR professionals to search for information on
benchmarking, best practices, market share, customer satisfaction, breadth of services and
other factors that are critical when it comes to making strategic and tactical HR decisions.
HR.coms HR Market Intelligence allows you to build customizable reports based on
survey data collected from the largest online audience of HR professionals. Reports are
created by mapping your needs against the best practices, trends and benchmarks
reported by other HR executives. Offering extensive data on multiple supplier categories
(job boards, consultants, services and various HR Technology platforms) within the HR
industry, each survey is planned and analyzed by industry leaders with the specific
intention of delivering you the information and research you need to make critical
business and purchasing decisions.

An Effective Tool
HR Market Intelligence will help you get the most from your HR service providers and
ensure that you select the right supplier for your business the first time. When you use
HR Market Intelligence to conduct your market research youll see supplier data
specifically through a lens based on your needs. In addition, the HR Market Intelligence
centre will help you find and reach other HR executives that have been there, done that
and can assist you in your decision-making process.
HR Market Intelligence allows you to find top job board data by market share and then
drill down to find the most relevant data. For example, job board X may appear to have
the dominant market share in the market but by drilling down in the report by area and
job title, youll be able to see that a vertical niche job board actually offers more value
and return on investment. Even better, you can utilize HR Market Intelligence to uncover
this key data and then reach out to those job boards and open up a dialogue about whats
really working in your industry and market.
Using the report technology and taking into account your specific needs, HR Market
Intelligence will provide you with a list of vendors in the space for you to evaluate. Then,
you can turn to HR.coms wiki to find samples of contracts and RFPs that will help you

you time and money while giving you the tools and data you need to get the inside scoop
on your market.

BENCHMARKING
Introduction
The dynamics of the telecommunications sector requires constant measuring, survey,
analysis and comparison of the relevant performance features as a way to set the starting
point in the adoption and implementation of the appropriate development strategy. At the
same time, it is vital to create a concrete methodological procedure that will enable
continual monitoring and also act as the sustainable source of guidelines for the
definition, implementation and post implemental corrections of adequate
telecommunications policy. As a common tool for strategic planning benchmarking found
its way for becoming widely used methodology for improving performance both on
micro and macro level. Benchmarking has been identified as a methodology for
monitoring information society at global level. The main idea of benchmarking is simple,
compare yourself with others, find the best practice and use it as a goalpost (benchmark)
for your development strategy.
Benchmarking is the continuous search for and adaptation of significantly better
practices that leads to superior performance by investigating the performance and
practices of other organizations (benchmark partners). In addition, it can create a
crisis to facilitate the change process.
Benchmarking goes beyond comparisons with competitors to understanding the practices
that lie behind the performance gaps. Benchmarking makes it possible to gain
competitive superiority rather than competitive parity. The term benchmark refers to the
reference point by which performance is measured against. It is the indicator of what can
and is being achieved. The term benchmarking refers to the actual activity of establishing
benchmarks and 'best' practices.

Need to benchmark
There are many benefits of benchmarking. The following list summarizes the main
benefits provides realistic and achievable targets

prevents companies from being industry led


challenges operational complacency
creates an atmosphere conducive to continuous improvement
allows employees to visualize the improvement which can be a strong motivator
for change
creates a sense of urgency for improvement
confirms the belief that there is a need for change

Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

helps to identify weak areas and indicates what needs to be done to improve.

Thus, benchmarking is the only real way to assess industrial competitiveness and to
determine how one company's process performance compares to other companies'.

My Experiences
The summer internship project that was undertaken by me at MTS for duration of 8
weeks proved to be a great learning experience. During the entire period, I faced many
ups and downs which proved an encouragement and source of learning and experience
for future studies and projects. The major experiences gained could be summarized as
follows:
1. Questionnaire must be designed keeping the target audience in mind. For
example, in case a question is not clear then it has to be explained at that
particular time.
2. The methods of analysis have to be kept in mind while designing the
questionnaire.
3. Questionnaire must be designed in such away so as its easily understood and is
relevant to the person filling it.
4. Proper ethics must be considered in mind while conducting the primary research.
5. The information obtained is not necessarily always true and of use.
6. Meeting people of various areas was a great learning experience.
7. It is not easy to meet everyone you desire as & when you want. One has to be
ready with the list of things which you need to ask, as you may not get the amount
of time you require.
8. High degree of humbleness and patience is required while talking to people.
9. You may not be able to extract all the information you require from the people.
They tend to become suspicious while revealing any kind of information. One has
to ask questions tactfully so as to get the desired information.
10. The research may not always go in the direction required. Hence it is very
necessary to keep the objectives of research in mind so as not to lose focus of the
whole project.
11. All this made me realize the importance of future planning and taking care of all
the attributes which may directly or indirectly affect our course of action.

Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

My learnings
This whole 8 week exercise was a great learning experience exposing us to a large variety
of corporate intricacies and work culture in actual. Various learning can be summarized
as below:
1. Set smart goals: These 8 weeks taught me to set specific, clear and smart goals and
objectives. This is the most important step for any kind of work and helps one to set
a milestone which is to be achieved.
2. Manage time efficiently: The past 8 weeks were quite an experience teaching one
how to manage time effectively. A time constraint is always required for a person
while doing any task so as to finish the work on time.
3. Being patient: Summer Internship project requires one to interact with a lot of
people in all the levels of management. Because of their tight schedules or different
levels of understanding one has to patiently explain the purpose of meeting them
and obtain desired information.
4. Effective communication: Ones communication has to be effective while dealing
with different people. Different people have to be dealt differently. Summer
Internship Project (SIP) teaches one the way to talk to different people. The time,
channel and manner of approach play a very important role in extracting
information desired.
5. Be ready for the unexpected: One has to be ready for any kind of unexpected
situation or any kind of challenge which may come underway during the duration of
the entire project. One has to face any kind of situation with zeal and determination
to succeed in it.
6. Adapt quickly: Situation keep changing with the change of time. Due to diversity
prevailing in the organization one need to quickly adapt with the new environment
to successfully thrive in it.
7. Being punctual: A corporate culture demands utmost punctuality and respect for
time. Being punctual build a persons reputation and respect. Also it is very
important to finish any activity on the pre-decided time.
8. Being humble, courteous and polite: One of the biggest assets any individual
could possess is his humble and polite behavior. Especially during interviews or
Faiza Khan, JMI

09-MBA-14

filling up of the questionnaires, one needs to be courteous enough to give answers


to all their queries.
9. Learning from ones mistakes: This fast moving world says that today there is no
place for mistakes. It is true that mistakes are our greatest teachers but there is no
room for repeating them a second time because first time its a mistake but second
time its a blunder committed. Repetition of the same mistake reflects very poorly
on ones personality. Hence one must learn from his/her mistakes and never repeat
them.
10. Making use of every opportunity: Opportunitys come in ample but one must be
clever enough to recognize it and make use of it to the fullest.
11. Effective decision making: Decisions sometimes need to be taken very quickly
while sometimes one needs to think level-headedly to take a certain decision.
During the whole SIP taking appropriate decisions have helped me gain a lot of
confidence over myself.
