7 Strategies for Building Successful Telecentres

Hi Everyone,
Many of you have discovered or learned about the Magic Number 7.

I'm sure you've heard of "7 Habits of Highly Effective People."

Hei, there are 7 days in a week

Oh ya, there are "7 Deadly Sins" ... Woooo...!

The soft drink "7Up" became popular after changing its name from "Bib-label Lithiate Lemon-Lime Soda.' Ummm ... Ya. No wonder...

Haiiiii .... yattt...!! "The 7 Samurai" of Akira Kurosawa ... and then adapted as "The Magnificent 7" of John Sturges with the Bang...bang...bang...!

There are "7 Wonders of the World."
Now, wait a minute here! EXCUSE Me...! There are gazillions wonders in this world...
But, we chose to have only 7 Wonders of the World... ?

"The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two: Some Limits on Our Capacity for Processing Information" by George A Miller is one of the most highly cited paper.
It basically says that our brain has an excellent remembering capacity of 7 items or in 7 chunks.

Hmmm... May be that's why we only have 7 Wonders of the World.

I think you've seen or heard more of the number 7 in many titles, books, magazines, articles, etc.


So, how about the Magic number 7 for Telecentre ?

Let me start with this question:

"What are the 7 Strategies for Building Successful Telecentres ?"

What are the 7 items... the 7 chunks .... of strategies?

There are gazillion things on telecentre items/issues out there and we can make gazillions "dish" from it.

So, anyway I'll be writing here what I think as the 7 Strategies. But, I would welcome your opinion on what you think they are.

What I consider important may not be important to you and vice versa. The way we "chunk" things may also be different. We have many ways of "cooking" telecentre dish.

The 7 Strategies that I'm going to lay down here is based partly on my 6 years telecentre work and the new development that are happening fast around us.

So, here they are according to my perception, as of now, the 7 Strategies for Building Successful Telecentres.


Wala... The 7 Strategies that are connected with each other. Interdependent.

I'll continue this write up on the next blogs...

Your comments at this juncture, however, would be much appreciated.

Hi Azul,
This is really a challenge, I, particularly has been prioritizing only three to four things access, shared Vision, social networking and capacity building. Now I have to add up to 7 and am certain that all will be different.

Thanks for the tips on how to build a successful telecentres. If only this could apply to people who commit adultery and infidelity. Well nowadays, communication is really important. But do you thinks Steve McNairs and his wife has the good communication? I doubt. Recently, Steve McNair's wife photo is of more interest after the slain NFL player was reported as having an affair with a 20-year-old woman, Saleh Kazemi. Rumors are starting to fly of a Steve McNair and Sahel Kazemi affair and murder suicide. Many would put a payday loan towards figuring it out. Well I do believe is communication will bring peace and cooperation in any matter.
