This text was written by an OB who has been with Company S for approx 30 years.
During his stay with S, he had a various experiences to manage
different kind of businesses and many chances to talk with top
management directly. As he felt his findings and experiences require
to share with S management to understand better about business
environment and changes of the industry as well as own technologies.
The Company S had a number of successes and failures but many of S
management will normally talk about their success stories, not enough
There have been many mistakes S made from its start-up stage and
the initial mistakes were known but following mistakes were somehow
hidden from surface.
This text may help S management as well as other companies’ management to think
before they take some actions and remember some of these mistakes happened.
Some of these are filed as Tweets by top management and the rest are filed as case studies.
