I’m cleaning out some old files this week winding my way down through 2009. I came across an article from Portfolio Magazine about Eddie Lampert and the restructuring he was doing with Sears and K-Mart in 2009.
There’s a great line about vision… or the lack thereof.
“In the absence of a vision, what comes out are multiple ideas being tested. On the one hand, that’s better than nothing but there comes a time when the time to test runs out, and you have to lock and load with the best answer for the company.”
What a great line. I came across a lot of organizations in 2009 that were testing ideas.
