Nobody To Blame – Kodak

January 19, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I love all of the stories about Kodak today.  Times changed and evolution of digital photography and the end of an Iconic American Brand……..etc….

The hard truth is that management wasn’t smart enough.  They weren’t as good as others they were competing with.  Kodak is a perfect example of a company that was put in a great position but the people running it were not good enough to evolve, to continue to grow.  Is there any doubt that others could have done tons more with that company?

What a great example of how important talent is to an organization.  In the end, it’s everything.  We work in an industry where finding the best talent is key, and sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of how important that is to a company.  Not today.  Yesterday a client told me that a new hire that we placed with them is awesome.  He is running circles around the others there.  He can’t believe the difference.  That’s talent that will have an impact on the company and it’s future.
