    Pros

    Best Buy employees have incredible energy and commitment. The corporate culture is focused on innovation, customer experience, field support and work life balance. The new leadership team (over 60% turnover of sr. leaders in the last 6 months) shows promise, but have inherited such a mess and lack of middle-level management commitment to change that the company will take a long time to change.....to turnaround.....and to be successful.

    Cons

    The company's operational effectiveness, financial management, and portfolio management practices are so poor that the company is leaking millions of dollars a day out of so many holes that the sr. leadership is having a difficult time focusing on where to start. The company has an unbridled innovative culture where leaders sign off on projects that are destined to fail, pet projects live on for years when they should have been killed in the first month, there is limited to know focus on process efficiency, and limited perspective and reaction by middle management that significant change is needed ("We need to do more of what made BBY successful in the past vs. realizing that the markets, customer requirements, and competitive pressures have changed. VERY poorly run company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hubert needs to remove and replace most of the HR function (starting with the head of HR), create extreme focus on talent management and development, enable LSS and other process improvement teams to improve the systemic problems, clean up the architecture issues, and drive business acumen throughout the org. (top to bottom).....his first efforts specific to ROIC education where brilliant....let's drive the message home. AND hold people accountable for bad decisions...we have too many leaders at the top and especially in the middle that are making poor decisions and leading their teams poorly.
