This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Lessons from great failures - Polaroid
Polaroid, which is associated with the first form of instant photography
and innovations in eyewear, was founded in 1937 by Edwin H. Land, to
exploit the use of polarizing polymer. Land ran the company which was
the Apple of its time. He was a Steve Jobs type leader, a scientist who
guided the company for four decades until 1981. Its peak employment was
21,000 in 1978, and its peak revenue was $3 billion in 1991. Polaroid
went titsup in the 2000s.
