How an American woman rescued Burberry, a classic British label

How an American woman rescued Burberry, a classic British label | LOOKING AT LEADERSHIP | Scoop.it
The fashion label was in dire trouble before Angela Ahrendts took over. Now, seven years on, she is among the best-paid bosses in Britain
Stephanie Parry's insight:

Angeal Ahrendts through her personal leadership and vision has turned Burberry around by repositioning its image. Interesting how important "love of the brand" is in this story.....

'It became clear that the rest of Burberry's executive team had little love for the brand.

"They had flown in to classic British weather, grey and damp, but not one of these more than 60 people was wearing a Burberry trench coat. I doubt many of them owned one," she said in a Harvard Business Review article this year.

Stephanie Parry's insight:

Drucker is as relevant as ever today , particularly given the intense complexity we all face. 4 key areas to focus on:

The importance of lifelong learning in a rapidly evolving information societyThe need to decentralize organizations around employees — viewing them as assets capable of expanding growth rather than as fixed costs to be eliminated — and to move away from standardized and tightly-specified process flowsThe need for institutions to focus on building capability around core strengths — one of the reasons he was an early proponent of outsourcing as a way to simplify operations and to focus management on what really mattersThe importance of focusing on the dynamics of evolving economic and social processes rather than on static equilibrium models.
