“By June 1, 2013 we have to have the new organisational structure in place and lot of ground work has to be done for that. Hence, we have begun the work even as the process of selecting is the consultant is on,” Rama Sivaraman, partner and global head, performance excellence, told IANS.
In an earlier interaction with IANS, company chairman Arun Jain had said the company is in the process of finalising the consultant to implement the organisational restructuring.
In January this year, based on the recommendations of Boston Consulting Group (BCG) Polaris Board authorised the company management to explore options that would provide an impetus for the next stage of growth and maximise shareholder value.
