CNJ. Can some one point out for me a sequential list of actions points, long term and short term, that will change the business within one year. What is the vision (no pun)the stratgies and the execution required to make it happen for the 3 segements: Pearle, Cole Licensed and MVC. TR is seperate for now.
I am interested in this company but see little of substance on this board that can change it, too much bitching and reminescing of the past, wasting time on religious preference.
Who is up to the challenge?
Any one know what the status is on the CFO search and a replacement for Smith??
first some late rumors. just rumors. cole has pulled a couple inventories of late-out of sequence with their norm. the latest was of dr's eqpt in the field. there is word (rumor) that cole is actively looking for a buyer for pearle.
now what to do 1. admit there is a problem. cole keeps spouting the same crap to their worker bees and franchisees 2. stop making dumb patches to the system. the problem is too big to patch 3. start keeping their promises. they have lied to the franchisees, the guys keeping them alive. 4. work with what they have and honor their commitments 5. stop the boon doggles into areas they don't understand, such as insurance ie., collecting for instead of providing service 6. try to find steve and see what he is doing and get him on the ball or out the door 7. get jeff another job and find some one (i vote for stansworth) to run the company 8. stop using their stores and franchisees as support for mm, turn it around. 9. hold marketing accountable for their work or lack there of 10. concentrate on the job of optics instead of their stock 11. sell all the stuff they don't know how to handle i could go on but why bother. the problems are basic. just plain old hones business would do it.
