Two Indians among world's best-performing CEOs

For years, people have bemoaned executives' zealous focus on short-term results, which often leads CEOs to make moves that undermine their firms' long-term prospects and, some say, act irresponsibly. But all the talk won't change anything if the business world doesn't adopt a new way of measuring performance.

Three professors from France's Insead believe they have the answer: an innovative scorecard that evaluates CEOs on the basis of the results they delivered over their entire tenures in office. It incorporates three metrics: industry-adjusted shareholder returns, country-adjusted shareholder returns, and increase in market capitalisation over that time frame.

Using this scorecard, the authors have studied and objectively ranked the performance of of CEOs of major corporations around the world.

Here we take a look at 20 best-performing CEOs, including two Indians, in the world.

NOTE: The list does not include CEOs who had assumed their role before 1995 or after August 31, 2010, and includes only those whose tenure lasted more than two years.
