But I've also learnt from other CEOs. Jeffrey Immelt is an example. What does it mean for an MNC to operate responsibly everywhere in the world. Jeffrey Immelt has spoken very eloquently about that. And people like Reid Hoffman, one of the founders of LinkedIn, who thinks deeply about technology trends but also the social impact of technology trends.It's fascinating to talk and learn from people like Nandan Nilekani, who has thought deeply having worked both in the private and the public sector, on what does it mean to build platforms for the government. This has got lot to do with the success of India Stack. It's a privilege to learn from a wide variety of people.How is the LinkedIn acquisition working out?Very, very good. We closed it in December and I am looking forward to going and visiting our LinkedIn team in Bangalore. We are very excited about the overall growth in that business.

In contrast, Vishal Sikka, 49, sits in a slick Palo Alto. Decisions taken in the US have ramifications in Bengaluru, with senior employees not having the same room to push back or alter discussions. Both Murthy and Nandan Nilekani, as CEOs, thrived because they were able to produce operating margins of 30% as the idea of offshore delivery expanded globally. Nilekani had flair, Murthy played schoolteacher. Those were good times. By 2009, when Kris Gopalakrishnan and his successor SD Shibulal followed Nilekani, markets were hit by the financial meltdown. Pressure on them was to target growth while managing an organisation of more than 1,50,000 employees. The strategic goal was to prepare Infosys for a mobile enterprise and cloud, but operating margins were a bigger concern. When Sikka arrived, two things were for sure. He was the first technology-CEO in Infosyshistory.

The Bengaluru-headquartered company is in the middle of a firefight between the founders and the existing board members about lapses in corporate governance. ET has reported that the $200 million paid for its Panaya acquisition and the questions that raised are at the centre of the disputes. “I have a heartfelt and warm relationship with Narayana Murthy. I have not met Nandan in over a year but I met Kris on a Lufthansa flight. I have an amazing relationship with the founders,” Sikka said. He dismissed media reports of governance issues as distractions. In an explosive interview to ET on Thursday, Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy questioned the Rs 17.38 crore severance payout made to Bansal, saying “such payments raise doubts whether the company is using such payments as hush money to hide something.” ALSO READ: Will the crisis in Infosys go the Tata-Mistry way?

They must accept responsibility and atone for it.” To another question, he responded: “First is for the Chair of the RNC and the Chair of the board to accept their mistakes and show contrition. Second is to follow the good practices of pre-2014 Infosys and improve up on them. Third is for the board to consult from time to time experts like Mohandas Pai, Bala, Prof. Marti Subrahmanyam, and Dr. Omkar Goswami in Finance and good governance; people like Nandan in Sales and Marketing; people like Kris and Sharad in technology and Finacle; people like Dinesh and Shibu in delivery expertise. There are, of course, many more good people among former Infoscions. I just named a few that came to my mind immediately. Finally, we have to bring in some good people like Prof. Marti Subrahmanyam as Co-Chair to the board and make people like Prahlad as the Chair of the RNC. There are also several other ex-Infoscions, schooled in the Infosys values who would make excellent additions to the Infosys board.”

When Vishal is in India and is free, he requests for my time. We only meet for a meal in my house or, on rare occasions, on campus. Vishal is a rare technocrat with whom I can discuss topics as diverse as quantum mechanics and B* trees (data structures in computing). Therefore, the only topics of our conversation during our meetings are physics, mathematics and computer science. Neither has he asked for my opinion on any aspect of his strategy or its execution, nor have I offered any advice on these issues. This has ensured that Vishal has had maximum freedom to pursue any strategy and any execution method of his choice. At Infosys, the culture has always been for all predecessors to only wish the best for the succeeding CEO and his management whether it is Vishal now, or Shibu (SD Shibulal), Kris (Gopalakrishnan) or Nandan (Nilekani) in the past.

Three cofounders--Krish Gopalakrishnan, S D Shibulal and K Dinesh--followed suit in abstaining; only Nandan Nilekani, also a co-founder and who succeeded Murthy as chairman, Sudha Murty voted in favour of the resolution. Sikka's compensation saw a sharp increase to $11million, annually , in 2017 from $7.08 million in 2016. Infosys says that the cash component of the salary has actually come down for Sikka with most of it in restricted stock units (RSUs) against extremely steep targets. Sources close to Sikka say that he actually gets less cash now than when he was chief technology officer at SAP . High severance packages to departing top executives, such as CFO Rajiv Bansal and legal counsel David Kennedy , has al so been an issue of concern.Tom Reuner, managing director of US-based HfS Research, said Sikka's honeymoon period is clearly over.

Drive is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed paddle-shift manual gearbox as before, but the drivers can now adjust the percentage of torque sent to each end using a new active central differential. When asked how much difference the upgraded drivetrain of the 2017 car would have on performance at the car's launch, both the drivers and team leaders said straight-line speed would improve, but it wouldnt necessarily be noticeable to spectators. However, all agreed that the new car’s bigger aerodynamic package would make a large difference to pace, helping the 2017 i20 Coupe WRC to cut its stage times by around 1sec per kilometre. Hyundai Motorsport team principal Michel Nandan said: “[This new era] is a great new technical challenge and one that we have tackled with enthusiasm. It’s an opportunity to put into practice everything we have learned and experienced in the past three seasons.
