In the words of Mr. PranabJyoti Das, CEO, Taction
“I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge all of you for participating in the Innovation Day event with full enthusiasm. Though, learning is a continuous process and we learn something new from every day-to-day activity, the event must have expanded our knowledge with a swing. Some of you may be having slight headache, but don’t worry that is due to use of either the inactive or new brain cells.”
Further, he adds, “you should really acknowledge yourself for accomplishing the outcomes… the project ideas, new tools and techniques, the team spirit, the scheduled orientation…, crossing the boundaries of technology and tools, revision of the “Open Source Software” space – remembering not to re-invent the wheel and many more… the list is really long.
Let’s look forward to similar learning and knowledge sharing sessions soon in the future and keep the Organization Value INNOVATION live all the time.
Once again, Congratulations for the spirit and learning!!! ”
