Why 2 CEOs or why not?

Since the time when SAP announced that it will have 2 CEOs at the helm, there have been multiple comments speaking about the concept. Not all that has been spoken negatively is wrong. At the same time not all that is spoken positively on the topic is true. I also gave it a thought on this topic. Probably my thoughts are tangential to the business topic here. But, I feel there should be some logic of 2. Explain "why everything in the world around us are in twos?" And probably this can provide answers to the title of blog...

  • We are born by the accident of 2 things…sperm and egg. (never heard of any use of one without the other)
  • We all have 2 parents (and they have 2 parents too and so on)
  • The govt of India, recommends 2 kids per couple…(ಆರತಿಗೆ ಒಬ್ಬಳು, ಕೀರ್ತಿಗೆ ಒಬ್ಬ …roughly translates to - a girl for household and a boy for glory...this could make the feminists flare up)
  • We have 2 ways on the road, probably because of evolution from accidents.
  • We generally have 2 ways into and out of a building…(remember the fire-exit of your office…if your office doesn't have one, quit today and look out for another job. Remember - Life (without burns) is precious).
  • Of-course normally we have 2 hands(to type such crap), 2 legs, 2 eyes, 2 ears etc etc. 

Wait - If we are not in 2, then we are many…fingers (and hence the nails), hair, teeth, numbers, alphabets, languages (spoken and computer ones..isn't it sic!), mental states..blah blah (see this generally comes in 2)

But…Hold on, I am not done yet!
If you agree all - this blog is comprehended and controlled by just ONE (yes, not TWO) thing…The BRAIN. But the brain has 3 parts (don’t even try to doubt me on this Biology aspect. Blame Google if its wrong.).

This now explains everything. CEO's are the brains of the company. They comprehend ideas and control things. And Brain is really complex. Don’t think that SAP has 2 BRAINS. We have 3 parts of ONE BRAIN identified clearly. The world knows the names of 2 parts. All SAP stakeholders, analysts and employees know the 3rd part.

So everything falls in place now.

Q.E.D. (Quite Easily Done)
