Here’s our 2 cents on Flipkart and their current management changes.
So we don’t understand why is there a hue and cry about Flipkart’s top level management shuffle! It’s simple. Flipkart is a Startup, and that too India’s most famous one. That doesn’t mean they can’t fail or have their own challenges.
Like any other behemoth Startup, they’re having multiple problems and tough competitions to face in the Indian ecosystem! We’ve seen them try and err with various strategies. Some worked well for them, some didn’t. Even the new decision of making Kalyan Krishnamurthy the CEO is a hit and try decision. It may work it may not. But the crux is that they’ve to try out new things and sustain the drive towards innovation. We believe that the essence of a startup and an entrepreneurial mindset is to focus at overall growth focusing on product and customer satisfaction.
Tomorrow you never know maybe Sachin has to step back in the shoes of CEO, or Binny. Who knows? As long as they’re trying different things to sustain the competitive advantage. It’s good!
