The strategy of competitive pricing (reverse auction of freight with dedicated movement) which would be the win-win situation for the company is also mastered by him. He gave the lesson “Along with delegation comes responsibility.”

His second phase in Maruti was at Spare Parts. He had moved from logistics to sales/sales administration. He used the logistics background to improve ordering systems for dealers by day wise scheduling as per route, truck fill, and round system in a warehouse for improving efficiency in picking and packing. The next lesson given was that you don’t need to change an organization to continue on the learning path. There are multiple opportunities with the organization itself.

When he entered True Value he learned, that was the stepping stone in the new car journey, every car is unique and the advent of digital. Through this, the lesson he delivered was that customer is the king and understands the customer’s requirement and tailor your solution as per the same.

The last session he gave was that do what will make you happy and you will not have to work a day in your life which is the most inspiring thing. There was a round of questions and answers by students to the guest speaker.
