What a 65 people organization can do ? Microsoft Research India is the answer !
- Do not ramp up the headcount unless otherwise essential, stay flat. You're right there on the 'fitness curve', if you go little above you're going to get fat and unhealthy. Then we may recommend you also for a 'lean & mean' exercise.
- Do more cool research targeting end customer and connect with customer often. IDC, IT and SMSG do not have time for the customers now and all of them lost their customer vision long back while building their empires.
- Do not go and set up shop anywhere else in India, whatever compelling reason it may be.
- Continue the academia collaboration.
- Invest more on the research internships, post doc researcher recruitments.
way to go, Continue all your good work Microsoft Research India.
You are the only ray of hope India has so that we can prove the talent behind this too old( ~2000 years) cultured country to the new vibrant, young (~200 years) cultured country's company Bosses to ramp up their businesses here in India in an efficient and planned way.
