What if we could choose someone else from the ELT to become CEO? If were to make TR CEO and shut down BT, employee morale would shoot up like never before. We would be inspired again and feel like we could have a real career again. Top performers would be recognized and our productivity would increase.
TR would never have sat there in a Global Town Hall with a straight face trying to convince everyone that what the graph in front of you shows is Business Transformation is working. I’m talking about the no-story graph that clearly showed our stock exactly tracking with peers and the “synthetic blend” of stocks to simulate PSX. The one where we were dead center throughout, except a tiny bit lower in the beginning and a tiny-bit-higher-if-you-look-closely-enough-with-a-magnifying glass at the end. Who comes up with an insane talking point like that?
