D2Hawkeye Workshop on “Our Managers” and first ever Cultural Program

There is always an air of expectation for a D2 All-Hands Meeting (AHM) and moreover, when you have the CEO and CTO present in the same AHM, the mood is entirely different. Such an AHM promises to be different and with lot of useful insights. This time also the AHM was a different one.

The following paragraphs shed some light on the recent Workshop, All-Hands and F-ever D2 Cultural Program 07.

Date : Oct-31-2007

Venue : Hotel Yak & Yeti
Hall : Regal
Time : 1:00pm-10:30pm
Report : AnupS

Prior to the AHM, under the supervision of Rudra Pandey (CTO), a small workshop was organized within the Regal Hall of Yak & Yeti. The workshop focused on finding the answers to some of basic questions that revolved around the D2 Managers’ traits and qualities. The workshop was really helpful as it brought out some of the important insights on the managers of D2. Based upon the conclusion of this workshop, Rudra , gave a presentation about how the D2ians thought about the managers at D2. This session was highly interactive and was appreciated by everyone. Rudra has to be accredited for coming up with such a noble idea that helped the managers to know what they were lacking and in which areas they were good. We definitely look forward to such workshops in the future as well.

After Rudra’s presentation, it was Chris Kryder’s (CEO) turn to deliver his speech to the awaiting D2ians. His presentation focused on developing and grooming the employee to become entrepreneurial. For any organization to grow and evolve, it is more than necessary for it to have staffs that innovate. Chris presented the exact sentiments in his presentation. He also talked about the necessity for the organization and D2 to continue to learn in this fast changing environment. The theory precipitated by Peter Senge on “Organizational Learning” is more than applicable these days. It is indeed necessary for an organization to learn and Chris vowed that D2 will keep on learning and innovating to compete in this era of globalization.

The AHM then was followed by the much anticipated D2 Octo Fest. D2 Octo Fest, a cultural program developed, designed and organized by D2 employees, started amidst the presence of top level management, D2’s client and all the D2-Nepal employees. The D2 Octo Fest featured following events during its 3 hours’ rendition.

The D2 Octo Fest was definitely a great event. Nobody expected to go that well as it was the first of its kind in D2. The top management was more than impressed by the show. The joint effort of all the employees culminated into one wonderful program, D2 Octo Fest. The show ended with a simple hope and expectation that such an event will be continued in the future as well.
