Abstract

This case focuses on the growth dilemmas facing Manish Sabharwal, Co-founder, TeamLease Services Pvt. Ltd. TeamLease is a Human Resource Outsourcing and Temp Staffing company located in India, which has grown rapidly over 2002 - 2009. Set in the context of the highly regulated Indian labour market, the case raises the questions of how entrepreneurial leadership and strategy formulation can leverage the opportunities represented by the gaps between what the law says and what the market needs. It provides an opportunity to examine the concept of power and influence and how it can be created and wielded to catalyze change and build a new industry which is technically illegal.
