BUSINESS 101 What Went Wrong With Kodak?

Category: Tourism, Posted:25 Mar 2012 | 06:00 am

From industrial wunderkind to bankruptcy, most any business should take a look at the saga of what want very very wrong with the collapse of the once admired Kodak.
A useful analysis on the subject has come out of [email protected] on where the train when off the tracks and plunged into perpetual purgatory.
Despite a roll call of innovations and leading technology, company leadership which was unable to change with the markets is the main catalyst for disaster.
Despite heavy investment into R & D (research and development), interaction with management at a higher level caused a short circuit.
There was no attempt to match business strategies with new products or establish needs (case in point is Apple – who really needs an iPad, very few. But who really want's one. Almost everyone).
Ultimately the company kept a foot in its comfort zone of old comfortable product rather than heading into the brace new digital world.
Lessons learned. Keep evaluating, changing and adapting business models on a fast track basis. Snooze and you lose or else end up in the land of the big sleep.
