EFL was one of India’s leading public sector fertilizer manufacturing companies with a proven track record of performance. However, the Annual General Body Meeting of May, 2012 turned out to be a ‘wakeup call’ when the institutional investors took to the top management to task for lack of robust succession planning. “Why have you not reported the list of our better talent that had left us in the past year”, quipped a concerned shareholder. The analysts followed suit and questioned the leadership on why it was losing its creative minds. Alarmed, the chairman called a meeting of the board of directors in which Ravi Singh, Executive Director of HR made a preliminary presentation on the challenges. Chairman turned to Ravi Singh and said, “Ravi, I am looking up to you to take this challenge head on. Let us keep our competitive advantage and give the competitors a run for their money”. “How dare they poach our talent”, he thundered with an characteristic fury. Ravi Singh nodded in acceptance, but as he returned to his office, the magnitude of the challenge began to sink in and self-doubt began to raise its ugly head for he had heard such bravados before seldom followed by actions.
