 Enabling Business, Empowering Consumers
 KALAMPUSAN 1st Semester 2012
1st Semester 2012
 A challenging year has prodded us to aim for something better and upped our standards for performance.
Out of the Usual andinto Excellence
 Now and then life throws us a curvethat tests our mettle and sincerity toserve the public.When a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hitthe epicenter of Guihulngan, NegrosOriental in February this year, every-one was caught off 
guard. Fortunately,most of us recovered soon enough tooffer substantial help.
Among those who responded admira- bly to the situation were the DTI Ne-gros Oriental and DTI Central VisayasOffices.
The DTI swiftly organized a series of Diskwento Caravans not just in Negros but also in other provinces in the region between February to June 2012. Thisdespite fear of “after shocks” from theearthquake.
Such tumultuous occurrences hadshifted our paradigm for work per-formance. We realized that we are better than what we thought we wereand proceeded to exceed our expec-tations.
In other words, life kicked us out of our complacency and rapped our  brains to come
up with better waysto do things. One of these is theconsolidation of accomplishmentreports and compilation of successstories, fact sheets and case studies.
This was how KALAMPUSAN, the performance magazine of DTI Cen-tral Visayas, was born.
