Q. Sanjit started a business from scratch and ended up as substantial owner of a midsized engineering company. The position of technical director in the company fell vacant when its incumbent resigned to take up another assignment. To the surprise of the board, Sanjit proposed that his young son Subhash should be made the technical director. One member openly expressed his opposition to the proposal and doubted Subhash’s credentials. Sanjit replied that his son has studied engineering in Remote Westbrook Technical University. In reply to the member’s question, he added that Remote Westbrook Technical University is an accredited University in USA. Subash, he added, also took training in some workshops near Detroit. When there was further opposition from other members as well, he pleaded that his health was poor and that he would like someone from his family to take reins if he became too ill, and would like to see his son to be elected as a technical director on the basis of company’s share held by him.
Assume that you have been the Secretary of the company for many years and have the ears of Sanjit. What would be your advice to him?GS Paper 4 Case Studies
