As I look back over my fifty years in the business — which includes employment with large and small companies, positions at both manufacturers and retailers, stints in Operations, Marketing, and Merchandising; time as an Individual Contributor, a Manager, and as a Leader — I am often asked “Why do some companies win and some companies lose?” I’ve worked at six different places since I graduated from college – five of those became ‘losers’ and one is a ‘winner’. I will share my learnings, both the positive and the painful, and link those to the changing retail landscape of today.
