9th July Meeting
AGENDA ITEM 2: What is your first impression analysis of the company and industry?
Kindly express your basic analysis of the issues facing the company first and then the industry here.
For me i beleive the company finds itself in a state of uncerteinty right now with the mereger-no merger issues between Staples and Office Depot.
We must also ask the question as to what state the company vis the industry is in now? Since Office Max had made losses in the initial stages of their operations they see some treat here. But there can be opportunities
Kago -- in reply to your post above - that is a good suggestion. What do you think Hove?
I however also think that if we could give ourselves what strikes us immediatly as an answer, it may be helpful??
like that we'l all be on the same wavelength so when we go on to make recommendations we'll be talking the same language..
Hove has still not responded but by this suggestion i can send a short SoW so that we all do the first part and send perhaps by Monday noon rather. We can have a short chat about what we have each sent in the evening and give ourselves up to the 17th to send through the second parts. We will then circulate a draft 1 of 5 by the Saturday and then we will polish up later?
Is that good?
true that, its quite a cut throat industry characterised by intense competition from all sectors, and to maintain or improve its position in the industry Officemax should tread carefully...it requires a well worked strategy is my initial thought
