On April 30, 2011, with the end of an era fast approaching, Infosys announced the management team that would assume control of Infosys with the retirement of one of its iconic founders, Board Chairman Narayana Murthy. Referring to the August 21 departure of Murthy, The Economic Times noted:
Thirty years after he and his six friends pooled in a few hundred dollars to set up the now iconic Infosys, N. R. Narayana Murthy is getting ready to leave the boardroom of the country's second largest software firm. The departure of Murthy-often referred to as the father of India's booming IT sector-as Chairman in August will mark the end of an era, that not only saw the stunning growth of Infosys but also sparked an outsourcing revolution worldwide....Serving as the company's Chairman
and Chief Mentor since 2006, Murthy's retirement comes at a time when Infosys is wrestling with the need for a dynamic leadership to tide over tough business conditions, and increasingly competitive environment at home and abroad. 1

Clearly change was in the air. Shibulal indicated that the company was "moving into its third chapter-where the first was about global delivery models and the second was about developing verticals, Infosys 3.0 was about innovation and consolidation."2 In March 2011 Infosys had announced a "restrategizing" of its business, centered on helping clients to "build tomorrow's enterprise" by becoming strategic partners with its customers. Their partnering initiative was metaphorical of the increasing responsibility that Infosys was assuming for creating business transformation for its clients. In order to build such value for its customers (and continue its phenomenal growth rate), Infosys faced continual challenges concerning how best to develop its employees' capabilities in order to build the corporate resources that would make the firm a desirable strategic partner....
