Friday Morning Question for Our Readers
Whom do you think are the best CEO's in the spine industry, and who are the worst? Let's face it, there are a few charlatans in our industry. TSB was speaking with one of our colleagues and we were wondering why do some people keep getting hired over and over, even after they have failed miserably in previous ventures. Isn't that Einstein's definition of insanity? What does it say about BOD's and investors. Recently, it was reported to TSB that a top notch Regional Manager was fired who had achieved 100% of quota in his territory for the past two years, only to be replaced by another Medtronic lackey. Is this leadership? Are these people networked with the investment community? Have some of these people ever sold in this industry? How incestuous have we become? One of our bloggers made a great point, there has to be someone out there that really knows what they are doing. So in the spirit of a good debate, identify that individual and provide us with your rationale. Does that individual possess integrity. Does that person bring business and clinical knowledge of the industry. The same rules apply for the individual that you would name as the worst. It could even be someone that no longer holds this position. With the 2010 People's Choice Awards around the corner, TSB wants to know what our bloggers think.
