This case study explores the evolution of Indian executive career and the changing role of a CEO in the dynamic and less predictable business environment. Quoting examples from top Indian companies – both manufacturing and service sectors – this case study provides an overview on the new age CEO, the roles and responsibilities and shows how younger generation can better lead the Indian corporate entities. It delves into many issues to debate on: whether the young CEOs have the requisite experience and exposure to lead an organisation at the helm, the reasons for today’s organisations looking for relatively younger generation to take charge and whether age and experience count any longer.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To have an overview of the newage Indian CEOs, especially fromthe point of view of relatively younger executives manning the role of a CEO
  • To discuss and debate on why organisations are looking at relatively younger people to take over at the helm; do they have to go with the times we live in? What role do age and experience play in choosing the right CEO?
  • To explore and discuss the challenges arising out of younger CEOs running the show.

Keywords : Leadership; CEO's; Young Leaders/CEO's; Indian CEOs; Age and Performance of CEOs; Selecting a CEO; CEOs Age; Executive Career; Indian Leaders; Sucessful CEOs; Changing Role of a CEO; Older vs Younger CEOs; Tasks of a CEOs.
