HCLT commitment to transparency and their efforts in inverting the pyramid were making a great difference for the company. The blueprint meetings, planning and implementation process has allowed HCLT to successfully compete with the best global players in the IT industry.

Even though HCLT was still a small company, they saw their business growing. They began to hire hundreds of new employees and with worldwide revenue; they were quite diversified with operations in eighteen countries. One of Nayars primary focus was keeping the employees first and customers second, but with the massive growth and gain of new employees, Nayar wasn’t sure how to sustain that focus. “How would new people coming on board understand the importance of trust and transparency”, Nayar asked. This question is what brought about the Starfish and the Spider leadership organizational concept by Ori Brafman and Rod A. Beckstrom.
Most companies, they argue, function like eight-legged spiders. “Cut off the leg of a spider, and you have a seven-legged creature on your hands; cut off its head and you have a dead spider”. “But cut off the arm of a starfish and it will grow a new one. Not only that, but the severed arm can grow an entirely new body. Starfish can achieve this feat because, unlike spiders, they are decentralized; every major organ is replicated across each arm”, (Nayar, V. (2010). Recasting the Role of CEO: Transferring the responsibility for change), The Starfish and the Spider: Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations, by Ori Brafman and Rod A. Beckstrom. In this reading, Nayar realized that HCLT was operating more like the spider rather than the starfish and seeing that they were operating more like a highly centralized organization. With this information a revelation was revealed to Nayar, and this will begin the start of…...

Hcl Case Study

...Case Analysis: HCL transforming itself to compete with the Big IT Services Firms The underlying issue for HCL Technologies was how to achieve even better growth than it already was and to find a way to compete with the larger IT services firms. HCL’s CEO, Vineet Nayar believed if he could transform the way his company thought and behaved he could continually improve HCL. He wanted a company that continued to get better and evolve. He created this by changing the way people think and by leading by example, creating results through change in philosophy, change in transparency and change in what the companies actual product was. This organizational change was actually a change in behavior that was carefully crafted through a positive and reinforced change in culture and mindset. Vineet’s problem was how to accomplish this while he already had a successful company growing already. He was willing to take the chance to grow his company though change while most CEO’s would have sat back and enjoyed their thirty percent annual growth. Vineet understood that even though they had a good growth number that his company still lagged behind the larger IT companies and he wanted to make sure HCL reached that same level or better. Utilizing Lewin and Kotter’s models for change he was able to enable his employees the opportunity to become the focal point of his plan of change. He was successful because he championed the change, created plans and allowed his employees the......

...MANAGEMENT CASE describes a real-life situation faced, a decision or action taken by an individual manager or by an organization at the strategic, functional or operational level HCL: Facing the Challenge of the Laptop Market Jaydeep Mukherjee and Mahalingam Sundararajan M r. Ajai Chowdhry, Chairman and CEO at HCL Infosystems Limited, a major technology hardware player in India, was pondering upon the company’s marketing strategies to build its laptop sales in 2010-111. Driven by powerful and sustained marketing campaigns by the multinational companies (MNC), namely Dell and Acer, during 2009-10, the laptop market had witnessed tremendous growth. Dell’s 1,500 million Indian Rupee (INR) marketing initiative had catapulted it from the fifth position (in terms of sales revenues) in 2008-09 to a second position in 2009-10 in the Indian laptop market2. Similarly, Acer had gone on a marketing and distribution blitz that catapulted it from No. 6 to No. 3 in the market, thereby more than doubling its market share. The reason for this sustained effort by the players could be attributed to the major structural changes that were taking place in the rapidly growing Indian computer marketplace. Traditionally, consumers preferred desktops due to lower costs. However, in 2008-09, consumer preference started shifting to laptops because of the mobility advantage and the falling prices of laptops leading to an exponential growth of the laptop market.
