IPL 2019 Sunrisers Hyderabad preview and SWOT analysis Will Kane chokeslam the

first_img File photo of Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson.IANSThe leadership group at SRH is perhaps the strongest and at its helm is one of the most astute minds in world cricket — Kane Williamson. The backroom staff of SRH is fantastic and they are like a family who does not put unnecessary pressure on the players. The like of Tom Moody, VVS Laxman and Muthiah Muralitharan are more like catalysts and enablers that help the players play their natural game by expressing their own skills in the ways they know best. Weaknesses The batting form of Manish Pandey has not been great and David Warner is returning after a long layoff. Thus, the pressure of run scoring will fall heavily on the shoulders of Williamson. The team has a decent middle-order but none of them can be ascertained as match-winners. Yusuf Pathan is a difference maker on his day but he is towards the end of his career. Read: Predicted playing XIsOpportunities SRH has the perfect opportunity to lift another title. They have one of the most balanced teams heading into the tournament and like they always do, they purchased very shrewdly in the auction this time too. The likes of Rashid Khan, David Warner, Bhuvi and Williamson are all big match players who can turn games on their own. Thus, another strong season is expected in Hyderabad. This IPL will provide Warner with the perfect opportunity to get back to a high standard of cricket. Following his ban, the left-hander has played club level cricket which is a far cry from international standards. Thus, he will see the IPL as an opportunity to get back into shape for the upcoming World Cup. Threats SRH has a lot of players who perform a similar role which gives the management a headache in terms of keeping the entire camp motivated and happy. Shakib Al-Hasan and Mohammad Nabi have similar jobs; the five pacers will not get a game every time; Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha and Sreevats Goswami will be vying for the same role. Even Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda are similar types of players.  IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPauseMute0:05/1:19Loaded: 0%0:05Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE-1:14?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

They are every opposition fan’s second favourite team but within the camp, they have been able to foster an atmosphere of success. SRH finished runners up last season despite their campaign tailing off slightly after a bright start. This season, they have bid goodbye to Shikhar Dhawan but will welcome David Warner back to the fold. The franchise has also acquired the services of Vijay Shankar who came their way in a trade which involved Dhawan going to the country and tournament’s Capital. Here’s taking a look at SRH’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.Strengths The team is filled with quality Indian seam bowling options in Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma, Basil Thampi and Khaleel Ahmed. This gives them the opportunity to stack their batting and all-rounders with overseas players. In Bhuvi and Kaul, they have quality death bowlers too. The plethora of options also allows the captain to pick and choose depending on the conditions while keeping everyone fresh.  Sunrisers Hyderabad to take on Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2018 finals Tom Moody has impressed with the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPLIANSIf the mystery of Rashid Khan is decoded, the bowling attack suddenly looks much less threatening. In the age of technology, it may so happen that the opposition does figure him out and that remains a constant threat.  last_img read more

This One Aspect of Your Office Design Is Wasting a Lot of

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 5 min read February 28, 2018 The modern office was conceived at the turn of the 20th century by Frederick Winslow Taylor, imitating factory assembly lines, where clerks and executives could perform repetitive tasks with maximum efficiency. In recent years, our offices have changed to reflect the more collaborative nature of work, but meeting rooms have lagged behind.Related: Science Has Some Suggestions for Making Meetings ProductiveBack in the Mad Men era, employees worked for a boss and gathered in his office for meetings. On the few occasions when a large room was needed, a secretary would book a suitable room. If a presentation was to be made, there would be flip charts and perhaps an overhead projector showing some slides to people in the room, watching through a haze of cigarette smoke.Today, work has changed utterly. We all still have a boss, but we tend to work in collaborative, cross-functional clusters rather than within isolated reporting lines. Fewer people have offices to hold small meetings in, and almost no one has a secretary to book a room for a meeting. The end result, as anyone who works in an office knows, is groups of people wandering around looking for an open room. And then, minutes after finding an empty room, often getting kicked out by a late-arriving group.Poorly used meeting space wastes money.Meetings are expensive — the rent of the office space combined with the wages of each attendee — but a lot of that investment is wasted. A UCLA and University of Minnesota study finds that executives spend up to half of their working hours in meetings and that as much as 50 percent of that time is unproductive. With 17 million business meetings in the United States every day, there are a lot of frustrated workers: 88 percent of people are annoyed by technology problems in meeting rooms, and 20 percent of meetings run late due to those issues, wasting 2.83 working days a year for the average employee.Related: How to Create a Meeting-Smart Work CultureIt’s no wonder that removing these headaches, solving the daily productivity challenges and streamlining workflows is a priority for businesses in every industry. And a majority of those organizations are installing integrated meeting room systems — with touchscreen tablets — outside each room to solve meeting room management challenges. Employees are tired of having to log onto a computer to find the shared network drive where they can reserve an open room. Instead, a growing number of companies are equipping their meeting rooms with interactive display panels on the wall just outside the door, empowering employees to instantly book the room and be on their way.Having a simple meeting room solution is increasingly important as fewer workers have assigned desks or their own offices.Modern meeting room solutions include the ability to cancel a reservation if no one shows up within 15 minutes of scheduled meeting start time, immediately opening the room for a new reservation. The technology also allows employees to extend reservation or contact support staff if there are problems with equipment or other issues. There are even meeting room management solutions with built-in light indicators, showing real-time room availability; green if the room is available or red if it’s booked.Related: How to Master Meetings (Infographic)Upgrading meeting rooms is key to revitalizing office space.Making meeting rooms more interactive and easier to navigate is part of a movement to upgrade our office spaces to better reflect how we work today. Real estate executives acknowledge updating is needed with 86 percent saying they are remaking or adapting offices and another 51 percent are planning to reinvent shared workspaces this year, according to the CBRE’s 2017 Americas Occupier Survey. Employing technology to more efficiently use meeting space is a vital part of those efforts and can make a big impact on a company’s bottom line.In fact, one of the top global professional services companies installed a digital meeting system and ran analytics to figure out how to optimize the use of its offices globally. Analytics revealed how often meeting rooms were empty and how often staff were working in each office. The information revealed that the firm was renting more office space than it really needed, prompting a move to a more efficient hoteling system of office space management. For example, at the company’s building in Times Square, in the heart of Manhattan, the firm was able to sublet three floors, an initiative that ultimately saved the company millions in rent, annually.Inflexible, static meeting room signage is one of the last vestiges of the 1980s-era office design. Making meeting rooms easier to use is part of the evolution of the workplace, and companies are currently clamoring to make that transition — because the benefits of digital meeting room management solutions are as wide-ranging as they are impactful.Related Video: This Tech Business Holds Company-Wide, 15-Minute Standing Meetings to Keep Employees Connected Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more
