Murthy’s public criticism was immature, say experts

In the wake of public spat between the founders and the Infosys management over corporate governance, experts feel that the matter could have been managed in a much better way had Narayana Murthy exercised some restraint.

Without disputing the rights of Mr Murthy to raise important issues concerning the company, Shriram Subramanian, founder and MD of InGovern Research Services, a leading corporate governance advisory firm, said the manner in which the entire matter played out in public is very unfortunate. “The mess could have been sorted out internally through private discussions with the board and the management. However, right from the beginning, the trust deficit between Mr Murthy and the board started to widen to its current state of brinkmanship,” he said.
