As Tesco prepares for a costly exit from America and reveals its first fall in profits in 20 years, its chief executive is working on a £1bn plan to help the retailer boost its British business, writes Graham Ruddick.
Laurie Waite's insight:

Tesco set to withdraw operations from America, and plan on £1billion investment to boost business in Britain. The company has recognised that the move will not have been successful for them, and would have proved to be quite costly. Terry Leahy commented that 'America has been a graveyard for UK retailers.' How have Wal Mart managed to succeed in Britain (with supermarket Asda), yet Tesco can't succeed abroad? The article mentions that 'Tesco believed it could not just take on US rivals, but do so with a completely new business.' Perhaps this change in the culture of the company in a different country proved too drastic for the management to deal with?

Laurie Waite's insight:

Tesco's own outline of their culture, covering their employees to their customers. It seems to me that they are using a democratic style of leadership. Could this be the reason for the company's huge success?
