Description

In Disastrous Decisions', we examine some of the biggest strategic mistakes made by companies, mostly motivated by ambition and greed. Freddie Laker started small with his airline, Skytrain, but grew the business too fast, with calamitous results. Cadbury was enveloped in the political storm over rising rates of childhood obesity. Marks and Spencer's bought preppy outfitters Brooks Brothers but it all ended in costly retreat. We also examine biggest business nightmares of all the ill-advised takeover that transformed the Royal Bank of Scotland into a bank in need of a massive bail out. This is a sobering look at business strategies that went horribly wrong.
