What is thought leadership

I was asked an interesting question recently to define what is thought leadership.

“Thought leadership means one would be able to think 5-10 years ahead in terms of what one would want to be known for and contribute significantly as a super-specialist. This could only be achieved from achieving knowledge based excellence in this domain so as to be globally recognise among his / her selective target stakeholders. This should be equally demonstrated by recognitions of high quality in teaching, research and advocacy. For achieving the long term goals, one needs to lay out the different incremental steps of these paths through which he/she will be able to meet the long term targets without compromising the short term goals. These steps frequently need updation depending on contextual changes but the end objective doesn’t shift. However there must be a continued demonstration from his/her own side of striving to move towards that goal.”

“Thought leadership is also about balancing the ability to dream and comprehending the scope of dreams in light of the practical constraints to achieve the dream. Dreams and action, without complementing one another, both lead to failure in realising thought leadership.”

How do Indian Institutions compare with the Global Leaders

Recently I had a very interesting chat with a close friend. Why do some of the best Indian Institutes never rank among the top universities in global rankings. What stops us to work harder and achieve global rankings. Why do Indian institutions fare badly in research? I was kind of perplexed in responding how can I explain it to someone outside the ecosystem. The challenge is that I should explain this in less than 500 words, since readers inside the domain of academics, know already about our shortcomings, but readers outside our system may get lost if we explain it in too much of details.  But more importantly, I also suffer from a lack of time to pen down my thoughts in a more detailed manner.

Abstract : Analysis of data by humans can be a time-consuming activity and thus use of sophisticated cognitive systems can be utilized to crunch this enormous amount of data. Cognitive computing can be utilized to reduce the shortcomings of the concerns faced during big data analytics.
