Businessman Interview: Infosys CEO

Interesting interview with the CEO of Infosys.

…when we sat down in the bedroom of my apartment in 1981, we discussed
for four hours what our objective should be. Should it be revenues, profits,
market capitalization?

No, we said it should be none of
those. We will seek respect from every one of the stakeholders. My view was if
we sought respect we’d automatically do the right thing by each of them. We’d
satisfy our customers, be fair to our employees, and follow the finest
principles with respect to investors, we would not violate laws, and, finally,
we’d make a difference to society. And then I said automatically you’ll get
revenues and profits and all that.
