When Founder Flounders
Of the three Indian CEOs at IT companies — Sundar Pichai, Satya Nadella and Vishal Sikka — the first two have no problems with the founders, who are foreign-based. However, Sikka is being questioned by Infosys founders on corporate governance. Earlier, Cyrus Mistry was fired by Tata Sons because of his differences with the owners. So, are founders of domestic companies infatuated with their creations and do not want to give up their paternal role? Is that why foreign-educated and foreign-working Indians find it difficult to work in Indian entities, former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan included? Is this desirable conduct?
