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.
ENOUGH ABOUT NUMBER 7.....
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.
