Interesting Conversation

I enjoyed reading this very interesting conversation between Indra Nooyi of Pepsico & Nandan Nilekani of Infosys. I expected the conversation to have some discussions around technology and how its helping the business competitiveness therein (it was not there), but on the whole a very absorbing conversation. A sample:

NANDAN: Sure. And in terms of performance of the company in markets, you have generally outperformed most indexes and most competitors...

INDRA NOOYI: We are listed in the New York Stock Exchange and we performed very well. Very good returns. We are the highest PE in the food and beverage space and amongst the highest in CPG space. That is good news and bad news because there is no place to go but down if you make a mistake.

NANDAN: And we have the same problem...

INDRA NOOYI: We got to sustain that very high level of performance. We are proud of where we are and I think the people at PepsiCo really would like to keep us there.

The simplicity and frankness shown by Indra Nooyi is indeed amazing. Very rarely do we come across a high pitch talk by CEO's without jargons and her statements and observations are straight to the point and as simplified as it could be. Recommended read.
