It is usually perceived that people transform projects. But Piyu Chakraborty - currently in the 2nd Trimester of her Power PGPM at Usha Martin Academy , Salt Lake - can vouchsafe for the fact that sometimes, projects transform people. A few months back, Piyu was selected to work on a project which required her to present a report on what goes into the making of a successful B2B website in the industrial products segment. She was understandably unsure about doing justice to the project, since she was from a non-technical background.
“Being from a non-IT background, it was challenging for me at first to evaluate a website on various perspectives. It was difficult for me to understand the technicalities of a website. However, as I delved deeper into the things that make a website exclusive, I realized it was all very logical. In due course, I was completely hooked to the project and what initially seemed a challenge turned out to be knowledge based fun experience for me.
Piyu knew well that based on her study, specific recommendations would be given for improvement of the websites of Usha Martin Limited and other group companies. This only made her work harder.
“That is the beauty of Usha Martin Academy ; it never fails to back its students, even when we don’t back ourselves. My mentor for the project was a part of the Senior Management in the Usha Martin Group. Yet he went out of the way to make me feel comfortable. While guiding me, he also let me think independently, supporting out-of-the-box ideas, and provided the necessary encouragement in the form of commendations at every step of the way. I learnt the valuable art of the nuances of working with secondary data. The successful completion of the project proved to be a great confidence booster.”
With this project behind her, Piyu is now looking forward to more such projects that provide her with the opportunity to learn.
“At Usha Martin Academy I am ‘learning to learn’. I find myself more open to challenges now. Each day here is exciting for me as I get to interact with Faculty members, who are stalwarts in their domain and industry. Their valuable inputs have broadened by horizon.It helps immensely to study under the guidance of competent professionals from the industry empowering us with lots of practical real life knowledge.UMA has helped us evolve from mere students to professionals who would be ready to tackle the challenges of the corporate world.”
Piyu Chakraborty advises her juniors at Usha Martin Academy to ‘make friends with the roadblocks’.
“They will come in your way, but if you take these roadblocks in a positive way, you will learn new things. UMA is an excellent platform to all of us to hone our skills. Itprovides the appropriate leverage in the form of the best faculty members to give guidance, and the great Usha Martin Group for industry support. So make the best use of it.”
She is positive that this project concerning B2B websites will be of immense assistance to her, once she completes her Power PGPM from UMA, Salt Lake.
