In my blog post on Monday, the main point I wanted readers to take away was that companies that refused to change or waited too long were worse off than those that took the risk to embrace change earlier. In any time of change, there will be winners and losers. Just because you try new things doesn’t mean that you will be successful. But, new companies and transformed companies will be at the forefront of innovation and success during times of rapid change. That’s where Sears Holdings is focused and planning on going.
In a follow up blog today posted on Sears Holdings’ blog site (SHC Speaks), I discuss the reasons we have been a test and learn organization and especially why tests that “fail” are an essential part of the process.
