Miracle 2010: All 33 Miners Rescued Safely from San Jose Mine in Chile

All 33 Miners Rescued Safely from San Jose Mine in Chile, and it is an amazing feat.  This is a miracle. We are very happy to see all miners come back alive and safely. 33 out of 33 in such a difficult mining accident will make it a milestone in mining history, or any engineering accident for that matter.

And it has been made possible by (1) sheer determination of the trapped miners to survive and (2) absolute top class engineering and mining effort by the rescue teams. We hear the total team was made of experts from USA, Germany, and many other countries. NASA also helped with special high calorie liquid food and psychological coaching to the trapped miners to survive the long isolation. This is a world class example for Project Management.

Congratulations to all people involved in this extremely well executed project.

estamos muy contentos de los mineros! le deseamos una larga vida!

Tech Mahindra Acquisition of Satyam and Next Steps

Here’s an update on the Satyam corporate incident from Dec-Jan, on which we had shared our thoughts. Tech Mahindra has emerged as the winning bidder for the 51% equity stake sale in Satyam. Tech Mahindra is also an IT outsourcing services company, and this development is a relief for Satyam’s employees and customers worldwide.

Kiran Karnik, the interim chairman of the Indian government appointed board of Satyam, said that it is up to Tech Mahindra to decide the way forward for Satyam. And of course, it shouldn’t be any other way. Tech Mahindra now has a wide array of restructuring projects as it tries to merge/rationalize Satyam’s services into its overall IT services portfolio.

British Airways Outsourcing ba.com

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/telegraph/multimedia/archive/01008/british-airways-46_1008478c.jpgTroubled economic times can bring all kinds of new projects. British Airways, bellweather of UK economy to a good extent, wants to outsource the operations for its flagship ba.com website as part of a major cost-cutting exercise.

It is estimated that ba.com takes about £30 million per year to run, and that BA is looking to save a big chunk here. BA Travel Booking and Servicing functions of ba.com – a major part of the ecommerce programme for BA’s online platform – will be outsourced to a third party under proposals being evaluated currently.

BA already uses third party vendors to for online FAQ service and payment system. Now even more will be outsourced, or maybe even sold, depending on how the proposals come. This blog post has more info.
