SMPIG NOVEMBER MEETING
November 30, 2018: 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM
Learning from Giants' strategy mis-steps
Growth strategies are supposed to create value not end their companies. Join us to review strategies that led two companies to their demise
500 West Monroe Street
Both Sears and GE didn't fall suddenly. Both companies experienced comparatively sluggish growth suggestive of an inability to adapt to changing markets. Was their size and breadth a celebration of sound strategies in earlier eras?
Was management so deluded, believing they were too big and mighty to fail? How did they miss changing market realities and signs of their internal weaknesses? Leadership ultimately deserves the blame and a review of their behavior offers plenty of learning opportunities.
DO Join us for the last SMPIG of 2018--as we sharpen our lenses to look past the management imperatives, identifying strategic missteps and leadership denials of changing reality.
