Manikutty, Sankaran., Ramachandran, Kavil. "Aravind Eye Care System – Retaining the Legacy", Harvard Business Publishing, 2017
The case deals with multiple challenges faced by Dr. Nam, the second generation head of Aravind Eye care, a social enterprise providing eye care in India. His goal of setting up 100 eye hospitals had hit a road block as a number of new private eye hospitals had come up. The owner family had grown into its fourth generation and branched out. The next generation had grown up with different aspirations. Their career path were not likely to be similar to that of their previous generation. Dr. Nam realized that he had a lot to do within a short period of time to keep the legacy and growth intact.
