Talking Business!! 

Vivek Paul's story is sure to be the head line grabber tomorrow...When I first saw the mail, I was so circumspect that I refused to believe that...Yeah...there had been rumors that he might leave, but I never gave it any serious thought...may be I should have....Looking forward, I see all possible reasons for him to leave Wipro..

He had been with Wipro for 6 years, that saw the growth Indian IT Companies into a Global force to reckon with and he made it happen..He became the highest paid Indian CEO...he might have achieved these things in such a short while and he is right now at his zenith, when it comes to Wipro. There might have been no further growth to him..he had achieved all that he would have aimed for in Wipro.

With his varied experiences from as GE Global CT to Consultancy(Bain & Co) to FMCG(Pepsi Co), he had it all and proved his worth....He did that in Wipro too and he doesnt have any further growth there...I still remember the discussions we used to have in TAPMI in the succession planning and continuity topics, over the course Wipro would have to take as and if Vivek leaves Wipro....

I was not surprised at reading the mail sent out...it is a well thought out plan, and the plan should have been drawn up some time back...the mail was pretty plain and the plan should work out well..Transition plans had been drwan up..Infact Vivek leaves Wipro in such a shape that it wouldnt matter...this is exactly what we had been discussing over the Organisations and Individuals...

The objective of the individual is to make his position strong in the organisation and make him indispensible...the organisation wouldnt want an individual to hold it at ransom....but a true Leader is one, who is completely dispensible to the Organisation... a paradox in itself...Vivek is completely dispensible...atleast he made that possible...that's what I think.
