The book provides a compilation of cartoons with playful conversation between the legendary Oracles Octopus 'Paul' and Parakeet 'Mani' who predicted successfully the final outcome of World cup football. In Management Practice, we often are exhorted to practice strategies like Knowledge Management, Lean systems, HRM, Reengineering and so on. While attempting to practice these in the fields, the manager encounters many counter measures and hurdles in their implementation and often the leaders who 'preach' such theories are the ones who 'scuttle' their implementations.
The author of this book has imagined the two famous creatures Paul and Mani as two "Chief Knowledge Officers" and through their conversation in cartoon form has tried to convey the shop floor and office floor happenings in a humorous way.
