JBT's RL #8: Don't be fooled by your expertise, success myths, and can Lyft challenge Uber?
By Jordan Thibodeau • Issue #8 • View online
Hi Tribe,

I hope ya’ll had a great week.
We all know the problems happening with Uber’s management.  Being the CEO is taking a break, the company is  being led by an executive committee of 14 VPs.  Who says bureaucracy only happens in governments?
For you HR nerds out there, Uber’s failure shows us the importance of succession planning for your executive ranks. Since the beginning of these numerous scandals, HR and the board of directors should have worked on a short list of possible CEO replacements. Sadly, they didn’t. Let’s hope they find a replacement soon. If I were a shareholder in Uber, I would be clamoring for new executive management  before Uber’s lead over its competitors starts to erode.

Always Be Learning,
Jordan
