Mumbai: ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEE), has implemented strategic steps to streamline and overhaul its Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC). Actioned by its MD & CEO, Punit Goenka, the steps are in line with his approach to optimize the resources and arrive at a cost-effective structure to drive continued growth for the company.

Basis the guidance received from the board during the recently conducted Monthly Management Mentorship (3M) program, the MD & CEO has pruned the TIC’s structure by approximately 50 per cent and streamlined its scope of work. Going forward, the TIC will maintain a sharper focus on enhancing the overall content creation, distribution and monetisation process for the company by utilizing technology-led tools to gain deeper insights into consumer preferences.

Speaking on this decision, ZEE MD & CEO Punit Goenka said, “We are laser-focused towards creating exceptional content that is rich and engaging for our viewers. We have a huge responsibility on our hands to live up to the expectations of billions of viewers across the globe and we will continue to win their hearts. To achieve this, we need the blend of a creative approach, detailed consumer insights and futuristic technology solutions. The  core  and  streamlined team  at  TIC will now only  focus  on enabling and  empowering us in this process of content creation, distribution and monetization.” A frugal approach, optimal utilization of resources and sharper focus on quality content are the key tenets of the approach undertaken by the Company’s management, under the guidance of its Board, chaired by Mr. R. Gopalan. In line with this approach,  the  Company is consistently taking all the required steps that are best aligned to deliver maximum value to its shareholders.

The company recently announced the strategic realignment of its revenue vertical, that is now being directly driven by the MD & CEO. The key changes actioned at the TIC are in line with this macro-level strategic approach, with an objective to arrive at a cost-effective structure that is competent and productive enough, to deliver the same level of output towards the Company’s growth.  

Under the guidance of the board, the MD & CEO is taking concerted efforts to achieve a streamlined structure of the organisation and optimise resource utilization for improved efficiencies, to enable long-term growth.
