Interview with Wipro CEO Kurien
Have you identified the next set of leaders to whom the baton can be passed on?
We had a first list of 100 leaders and we are finishing the performance review by the end of May. And then we go out and meet each one of them. And those will be our guys who will be given different responsibilities to take us through the path. Leadership is a funny state. As a leader you can succeed in one and fail in the other role. For me, leadership is all about winners. And you need to have that deep instinct to say I want to be better than somebody else. And if you don't have that, you are not probably the leader for tomorrow.
If one looks at Wipro's performance over the past few quarters, it is dangerously close to losing its position as the third largest domestic IT company.
It doesn't bother me at all. My competitor was number four yesterday or even today.
But why shouldn't it bother you?
What really would bother me is if my customer came and told me you are losing out on delivering value to us. That would really bother me.
