Hi Friends,

Hope you will agree with me that team work is essential....

A bunch of smart MBA students about to give their final paper just got nicely drunk & did not study.

Next day morning remorse filled them & they thought of a brilliant idea of fooling their dean to cover their absence.

They painted their hands & dresses with oil & grease &, with disheveled hair, they burst in the examination hall where the paper was going on.

They painted a sob story of how their car developed a flat tyre the previous night on a desolate road & how they didn't get any help & had to rough out back to the campus which they reached just a few minutes earlier.

They pleaded for a re-exam after a few days. The dean said he was a reasonable man & he would give the re-exam after three days.

The boys worked hard for the three days & went to the hall confidently.

The dean explained that since this was an extraordinary request, the four students will give the examination from four different halls, the question paper being the same.

The question paper was given to the four halls.It had 100 marks.

The first question which had just 5 marks was simple.

The second question which had 95 marks was:- "WHICH TYRE??"

Team work is essential !!!!!

Dear Barkha,

That was hilarious stuff with a hidden moral for the management community. 'Teamwork' is what it concluded with which has become a mandatory prerogative within today's working executives. For world-class results, you have to build an enhanced team to face the challenges in a world of cut-throat competition. If the team is appropriately trained, then teamwork will positively get triumph in all the industry functions. To conclude, when a team is working well, the total is far greater than the sum of its parts.
