New Indian Coach

No, it hasn't been announced yet....

Is it just me, or has the appointment of the Indian national team coach been the best possible case study that organisations can learn from in terms of how NOT to go about a senior appointment? Off the top of my head, don't:

- constantly give journalists off the record snippets that find their way into the media
- give any opinions on who the next coach might be, or what nationality they might be
- give any commitments on how long it will take to make an appointment
- publicly narrow the field to two
- go public with which board members suggested which candidates
- bring someone with only a moderate non-international record in for interview
- publicly announce that you have been turned down by a candidate

The list goes on. The BCCI have shown they are incapable of average administration once again...let alone good administration.
