The resignation of Wipro Vice-Chairman Vivek Paul has fuelled a lot of speculation in the media. Following Paul's resignation, Chairman Azim Premji sent out an internal memo in which he announced the setting up of two task forces, one under Ranjan Acharya, Vice-President (Corporate Human Resources Director), to look at leadership issues and the other under Sudip Nandy, Chief Strategy Officer and Girish Paranjpe, President (Finance Solutions) to assess Wipro's future strategy. Despite these changes and the brave face put up by the company, many analysts have expressed concern about the recent events. Paul's resignation has raised doubts about Wipro's ability to retain top professionals. In the past five years, several senior managers have left the company at regular intervals. Where have things gone wrong?
