CavinKare Private Limited (CavinKare), a FMCG company was founded by Chinni Krishnan Ranganathan (CKR) in 1998. With the rapid growth of the organization, the spirit of entrepreneurship had given way to bureaucratic functioning. In 2012, CKR undertook a series of human capital interventions aimed at rejuvenating the organization and at aligning performance goals at different levels to the larger organizational strategy, bringing in the right people, providing them the right resources to succeed, and creating the right incentives for performance excellence. New systems and processes were introduced for employee selection, setting clear performance expectations, review & assessment, training & development, compensation and rewards & recognition. The changes enhanced CavinKare's growth and the company registered a double-digit growth while the industry average hovered around 4-5%. Though the company had effectively implemented a range of human capital systems and processes, CKR believed that the culture and mindsets still lagged. There was a need to ensure that the cultural fabric had to be aligned to the intent of creating performance excellence by being entrepreneurial, innovative and learning-oriented. CKR wondered how to address this unfinished agenda of building human capital.
