EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

I worked for HCL INFOSYSTEMS LTD IN Career development centre located in Haldwani.
I worked for the project titled MARKET EXPANSION OF HCL-CDC in training through
career development centre

My area of work:
I on behalf HCL CDC was asked to organize promotional activities including
presentations, seminars

 To create a customer database for the company, so that interaction to the potential
Customer could be done in a swift manner.
 To convince the potential customers about HCL products and close the deal

My learning:-

 Learned to interact with customers of different stratum.


 Most of the customers were more inclined towards BRAND NAME.
 As region covered was Chandigarh, Haryana and Punjab so it has greater potential to
flourish.
 Learned how to close deal and imbibe corporate culture of HCL.

Flaws of the projects:-

 Target customers were very widespread and distributed so took long time to locate
them and there was lack of awareness about training program of HCL .
 As the program offered by HCL were not affiliated by any university so it was difficult
to convince the target customer.
 The pricing strategy of the HCL was not suiting lower middle class.

Suggestions

 Being a manager of the project I could have offered more flexibility in pricing strategy
of HCL TRAINING program to suit the pockets of lower middle class.
 More promotional tool like event sponsorships, advertisements and pamphlets could be
used to create more awareness about HCL training programs.

3
 Prior research on segmentation of target customers and reasons influencing their
decision should be done to increase closings of HCL training programs.

5
policy.One of the key elements to HCL's success is its never-ending pursuit of superior
quality in all its endeavors.

HCL INFOSYSTEMS believes in the Total Quality Management philosophy as a means for
continuous improvement, total employee participation in quality improvement and customer
satisfaction. Its concept of quality addresses people, processes and products.

Over the last 32 years, we have adapted to newer and better Quality standards that helped us
effectively tie Quality with Business Goals, leading to customer and employee satisfaction.

QUALITY AT HCL INFOSYSTEMS LTD

The history of structured quality implementation in HCL Infosystems began in the late 1980s
with the focus on improving quality of its products by using basis QC tools and Failure
Reporting and Corrective Active Systems (FRACAS). We also employed concurrent
engineering practices including design reviews, and rigorous reliability tests to uncover latent
design defects.

In the early 90s, the focus was not merely on the quality of products but also the process
quality systems. Our manufacturing unit at NOIDA was certified initially to ISO 9002:1994
by Bureau Veritas Certification in 1994 and later on to ISO 9001:1994 in 1997. As of now,
all our manufacturing units are certified by Bureau Veritas Certification as per ISO
9001:2000 and ISO 14001: 2004

In early 1995, a major quality initiative was launched across the company based on Philip B.
Crosby's methodology of QIPM (Quality Improvement Process Management). This model
was selected to because it considered the need and commitment by an organization to
improve but more importantly, the individual's need towards better quality in his personal
life.

Under our Quality Education System program, we train our employees on the basic concepts
and tools of quality. A number of improvement projects have been undertaken by our
employees, whereby process deficiencies and bottlenecks are identified, and Corrective
Action Projects (CAPs) are undertaken. This reduces defect rates and improves cycle times in
various processes, including personal quality.

We have received MAIT's 'Level II recognition for Business Excellence' for our initiatives in
the Information Technology Industry, adding another commendation to our fold. MAIT's
Level II recognition is based on the 'European Foundation for Quality Management' (EFQM),
for gaining quality leadership and business competitiveness.

Our certifications / awards in 2003 include ISO 9001-2000 by Bureau Veritas Certification
for our InfoStructure Services and award of First Prize by ELCINA (Electronic Component
Industries Association) for Quality, 2002-03. The ELCINA award criteria considers two
aspects. (1) Enablers (Leadership & Management commitment, Resource Management,
6
Product Realisation, Measurement Analysis & Improvement) and Results (Product Quality,
Customer / Stake holder satisfaction , Business results).

The tryst for continuous quality improvement is never-ending in HCL Infosystems. We


always strive to maintain high quality standards, which help us fulfill our mission to provide
world-class information technology solutions and services, to enable our customers to serve
their customers better.

which form the part of target customers

BASIC CONCEPTS FOR MARKET EXPANSION

Stages of new product development

11
a.) Business research:

We will generate the new product ideas from customers, Retailers, Dealers using
external research organizations.

We will screen the ideas on the basis of -

 Demand for the product: How much demand can be generate for our product.

 Price elasticity of the demand: on which one price we can sale our product.

b.) Concept testing and analysis

After idea screening we will do the Concept testing like:

 Total sales estimation: we will try to estimate about the total turnover, so that
we can also pay attention on production.

 Estimation cost and profits: after estimate about total sales we will estimate
about cost and profits which we will occur during business

c) Product development

In this stage, detailed technical analysis is conducted to know whether the product can be
produced at costs low enough to make the final price, attractive to the customers.

Product use testing:

i) Alpha testing: within the company.

ii)Beta testing: out side the organization.

iii) Gamma testing: for long term testing.

d.)Test marketing:

Test Marketing is the stage where the product is introduced in a few select cities.

In this stage marketer needs to take decision about:

The number of cities in which the product is to be tested.

12
Name and geographic location of the cities.

Time to carry out the test marketing.

e.) commercialization:

Product enters into the market during this stage.

In this stage firm incurs huge cost like:

Manufacturing cost

Capital Cost

Promotion cost

Advertisement cost

Distribution cost

MARKETING STRATEGY

• Product strategies :-

The product is one of the most important component of marketing program. Product
features can be customized depending on the requirement of the local market.

• Promotion strategies:-

The Promotion strategies of our organization include advertising, sales promotion ,


publicity, direct marketing and personal selling.

• Pricing strategies:-

While developing pricing strategies for the market we consider the internal and
external environment of a company. Internal factors include inventory cost,
production cost etc.and external factors include competitive environment etc.
13
• Place strategy:-

We access to two major types of distributional channels – domestic intermediaries


and foreign intermediaries. we can utilize the services of a domestic intermediaries in
form of an export agent or export management company that export’s the companies
good to foreign countries.

COMPETITIVE STRATEGIES

• Market leader :

A market leader has a considerable market share, a significant presence in the industry
and is acknowledged as the leader by other firms in the industry.

• Market challenger :

Market challenger are that firm which occupy the second, third or fourth positions in the
market. They attack on weak points of market leader.

• Market follower :

Market follower prefer to follow the leader rather than attack on it.

• Market niche:

Firm try to operate in a small segment of the market in which the leader is not interested.
14
PROMOTIONAL TOOLS

Following are the promotional tools use by our organization for the marketing
activities:-

Advertising:-

The major advantage of advertising is its ability to reach a large audience at a very
low cost. we adopt this strategy because customers get bored with the conventional
style of marketing. So we should keep the customers guessing and interested by
launching advertising campaigns that puzzle, tease and arouse the interest of the
customers.

Sales promotion:-

Sales promotion is a form of attracting the customers by offering them various


benefits in the form of incentives or by adding the value of the product. The various
kinds of sales promotional tools which we are using to increase the sales are coupons,
discount, samples etc.

Publicity: -

Publicity is a non paid form of communicating information about the product as a


news article in the newspaper or television or radio. We can manage the marketing
communication mix with appropriate and timely publicity through newspaper articles,
coupled with attractive public relation campaigns.

Public relation:-

Public relation helps us to create a positive opinion about the firm in the market

Direct marketing:-
15
In direct marketing, we communicate directly with the customers through mail or
telemarketing or marketing through the internet.

CONCEPTS BASED

A survey research is defined as the method of collecting information by asking a set of pre
formulated questions in a predetermined sequence in a structured questionnaire to a sample of
individuals drawn so as to be representative of a defined population. These questionnaires are
administered to an individual or a group of individuals through interviews. Typical survey
objectives involve describing or learning from an ongoing activity by studying the changes in
behavioral patterns of the subjects of interest to the researcher.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

HYPOTHESIS FORMULATION
Hypothesis: A tentative explanation for an observation, phenomenon, or scientific problem
that can be tested by further investigation. A hypothesis describes in concrete terms, in the
form of a statement, what you expect will happen in your study.

Following aspects should be kept in mind when formulating a hypothesis

16
• Hypotheses can only be formulated after the researcher has gained enough knowledge
regarding the nature, extent and intensity of the problem.

• Hypotheses should figure throughout the research process in order to give structure to
the research.

• Hypotheses are tentative statements/solutions or explanations of the formulated


problem. Care should be taken not to over-simplify and generalize the formulation of
hypotheses.

• The research problem does not have to consist of one hypothesis only. The type of
problem area investigated, the extent which encircles the research field are the
determining factors on how many hypotheses will be included in the research
proposal.

Criteria for the formulation of a hypothesis: Following criteria are of importance in


formulating hypotheses. A hypothesis should:

1. stand a test;

2. be expressed in clear language;

3. be in accordance with the general theme of other hypotheses statements in the same
field of study, and should be regarded as valid;

4. be. coordinated with the theory of science;

5. be a tentative answer to the formulated problem;

6. be logical and simplistic;

7. consider available research techniques (to be able to analyze and interpret the results);

8. be specific; and

9. Be relevant to the collection of empirical phenomenon and not merely conclude value
judgments

10. In case of exploratory research generally there exist no hypothesis

17
Hypothesis for the project

There is a great potential in training sector in which HCL wants to venture


through career development programs in information technology sector.

RESEARCH DESIGN

Research design can be thought of as the structure of research -- it is the


"glue" that holds all of the elements in a research project together. We often
describe a design using a concise notation that enables us to summarize a
complex design structure efficiently

Types of Research Designs

 Exploratory Research

Designed to generate basic knowledge, clarify relevant issues uncover variables


associated with a problem, uncover information needs, and/or define
alternatives for addressing research objectives.

A very flexible, open-ended process.

 Descriptive Research (who, what, where, how)

Designed to provide further insight into the research problem by describing the
variables of interest.

Can be used for profiling, defining, segmentation, estimating, predicting, and


examining associative relationships.
18
 Causal Research (If-then)

Designed to provide information on potential cause-and-effect relationships.

RESEARCH DESIGN FOR PROJECT

Exploratory Research

Designed to generate basic knowledge, clarify relevant issues uncover variables


associated with a problem, uncover information needs, and/or define
alternatives for addressing research objectives.

A very flexible, open-ended process.

SURVEY METHOD

Experience Surveys (depth interviews)

 people with varying points of view

 Unstructured and informal interviews

 Respondent free to choose issues to be discussed

19
SAMPLING

Sampling is the process of selecting a small number of elements from a larger


defined target group

of elements such that the information gathered from the small group will allow
judgments

to be made about the larger groups.

THE SAMPLING DESIGN PROCESS

1. Define target population

a. Target population:- The collection of elements or objects that possess


the information sought by the researcher

b. Element: - “Objects that possess the information sought by the


researcher regarding which inferences are to be made “

c. Sampling unit:-“The basic unit containing the elements of the


population to be sample

20
2. Developing a sampling frame:-A representation of the elements of target
population. It consists of a list or set of directions for identifying the target
population

3. Selecting the sampling technique:-

A. Sampling with replacement

B. sampling without replacement

1. Probability sampling

2. Non probability sampling

4. Determine Sample size:- “The number of elements to be included in a


study.”

5. Execute the sampling process

Representative sample:-
A sample whose characteristics correspond to, or reflect, those of the original
population or reference population

To ensure representativeness, the sample may be either completely random or


stratified depending upon the conceptualized population and the sampling
objective (i.e., upon the decision to be made)

21
SAMPLING TECHNIQUE USED

Stratified Random sampling –It is a two step process where first step consists
of dividing the whole population into subgroups and then elements are selected
from each stratum randomly

 Often factors which divide up the population into sub-populations


(groups / strata)
 Measurement of interest may vary among the different sub-populations.
 This has to be accounted for when we select a sample from the population
to ensure our sample is representative of the population.
 This is achieved by stratified sampling.
 A stratified sample is obtained by taking samples from each stratum or
sub-group of a population.

SAMPLE SIZE - 250

In our project target population is students.

Sample frame is students who have passed out senior secondary examination
and who are graduating or passed out .

I) We divided the students based on their academic background into two


parts- Technical students

Those students who are doing or done Engineering and any technical
courses.

22
II) Non technical students

Those students who are 12th passed and graduate in any stream or
those are pursuing graduation

DATA ANALYSIS

Eighty percent of respondents were of opinion that HCL should enter into career
development programs considering present education scenario for higher
studies.

Fifteen percent of respondents were in favour of traditional classroom studies


and were not sure about HCL success in career development programs.
24
Five percent respondents could arrive any consequential decision regarding
HCL’s entry in career development programs.

Based on response of the target students it was observed that there is a


upcoming need of IT industry oriented career programs. As the course provided
in the college are not able to cater to the specifications of industry demands
there is great potential for HCL to enter into career development programs.

HYPOTHESIS TESTING

After analysis of data we conclude that there is a great potential in training


sector in which HCL wants to venture through career development programs in
information technology sector. Therefore we accept the hypothesis of the
project.
