Louis Chenevert as a Profound Thinker

Louis Chenevert is a profound thinker steep in his business dynamics. However, those who have ever held a conversation with him over a cup of coffee put it that he makes one grab a few core precepts that aids at explaining UTC’s achievements. First and foremost, UTC is not a conglomerate in the sense that it’s a combination of disconnected businesses. Its target is in two broad markets, aerospace in conjunction with building technologies. It’s in these broad markets that UTC is consistently searching both functional and financial synergies. For example, it has joined up Otis with its climate and regulates business so that it can provide integrated solutions to the commercial and infrastructure projects all over the world. Also, it’s doing similar with Pratt and the most recent Goodrich aerospace business.

 

Goodrich and the legacy of the Hamilton Sundstrand Unit Company are comprised of divergent aerospace technology business which if combined with Pratt&Whitney engines provides the market that’s equal to one-stop shopping for airframe integrators such as Embraer and Bombardier. This combination allows UTC to offer more content to start up aircraft. The same way as the combination of Otis elevators and escalators with carrier air conditioning enables the company to provide comprehensive and clear explanations for a family of complementary technologies which was used as the cover of annual underscores with the single-word theme, ”Focused” in 2013.

 

Apart from focus, UTC explores balance in its portfolio of various business between different types of market in conjunction with its users. Louis Chenevert said that demand cycles in the military world, as well as the commercial world, usually follow various rhythms that can smooth out results from one year to the other and revenue as well. For example, the demand for commercial jet engines may go down in the time of international tension whereas the demand for military engine rises. Thus, by retaining compatible skills and capabilities in both parts of the aerospace market. UTC can then keep its resources productively utilized. The companies that run explicitly exclusively in the military and commercial business sectors are highly exposed to the boom-and-bust cycles that impact mass layoffs.https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-09-08/goldman-sachs-hires-former-united-technologies-ceo-chenevert

Fabletics – Taking on Amazon

Retail stores in America and the world are always competing. A company that has made headlines recently is Kate Hudson’s Fabletics. According to experts, it may be the store that will give Amazon a run for its money. Fabletics must be gaining momentum and looking to get a competitive edge. This athleisure company has plans to open up to 100 stores in three to five years according to Forbes.

 

Forbes Insight on Fabletics

 

In 2016, Forbes discovered the company had only six traditional brick and mortar stores. Of these, only 40% of the sales they make are from clients who are ‘members’ of a subscription program provided by the company. With this in mind, the remainder of sales is derived from online stores owned by the company. Primarily Fabletics is an e-commerce retailer.

 

The company has come a long way to prove it can challenge current online giants. Despite stores such as Amazon stating they are ‘not threatened’ by the company, they seem ‘worried’ about the roll out plan for Kate Hudson’s company. Their subscription plans are very transparent and majority, if not all, subscribers of the same have provided positive comments.

 

To ensure all its customers are satisfied, the company has been tirelessly improving its customer service department. By April of 2016, it had rolled out a plan to ensure customers could be served 24 hours a day. Additionally, they implemented a strategy that would ensure clients experienced short wait times.

 

CEO and Co-Founder Comments

 

In an interview with Forbes, Fabletics’ CEO and co-founder sated the company was planning to completely mirror their stores to the online experience. Some consumers were of the opinion they had to get memberships in order to purchase low cost apparel. According to Goldberg, this was a misconception due to lack of sufficient information.

 

The CEO said their customer care desk was able and willing to assist any current and/or potential client get the apparel of their choice. He insisted subscription was optional and not mandatory as stated by some sources.

 

 

In a bid to improve customer service, Goldberg stated that the company has been undergoing something of a makeover. The stores might be the next step to revamping the company and giving it an edge against other competitors. By October of 2016, the company had done an audit that made it consider making changes to some of its policies. By the end of 2016, Goldberg reported that complaints they received were about five in a month. This is a great achievement of any online store seeing that consumers may complain about anything albeit small.

 

Marketing Schemes

 

Fabletics has made changes to its marketing schemes. For example, it mocked Lululemon’s see-through pants debacle and high price tags in a series of YouTube videos. Forbes has predicted that the company plans on opening new brick and mortar stores near Athleta and Lululemon units. This may be attributed to the fact that the CEO stated that Fabletics does very, very well when located near either of these stores.

 

 

This may be because Fabletics offers a cheaper alternative in majority of products its competitors have on offer. With this trend, it may be the next ‘big buzz’ in the United States.

Poetic Justice: How Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey Win Against Arpaio

Recently, Donald Trump issued a presidential pardon to one Joe Arpaio, former sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, despite his long grocery list of illegal atrocities. In addition to criminal convictions, Arpaio is renowned for subjecting immigrants of Maricopa County to unfair racial profiling, unconstitutional treatment in jail, wrongful arrest, encampment, and an entire array of grave misconduct. There may lie some silver lining yet, however, amidst this scumbag’s trail of injustices.

Nearly a decade ago, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, two highly respected reporters, dug up some unflattering information regarding Mr.Arpaio. The duo wrote in a Pheonix, Arizona publication, about Arpaio’s corruption and misuse of public funds for his own personal gain.

In response and retaliation, Sheriff Arpaio jailed Larkin and Lacey under a false pretense, claiming the two refused to turn over personal information, which Arpaio had no right to obtain, to begin with. The journalists were immediately released when the arrest was finally deemed unconstitutional and went quickly to work in their pursuit of truth, justice, and human rights.

With their almost $4 million settlement from Maricopa County, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey launched the Frontera Fund. The Frontera Fund supports and even partners with groups which advocate for general civil and migrant rights as well as freedom of speech and civic participation throughout Arizona, including those involved directly with the Mexican border.

The fund uses donations to further its mission to ensure all immigrants receive their right to fair opportunity in the United States. The reporters, Larkin and Lacey continue to use their talent and voices in journalism to spread awareness of human rights violations and the dangers of letting people like Joe Arpaio abuse their power.

The Frontera Fund has supported a multitude of human and civil rights organizations, including Aliento and the Arizona DREAM Act Coalition. The fund brings the battle for justice even closer to home by helping the individual of unjust discrimination find the resources they need to escape injustice and fight for a better, equal future.

Although Joe Arpaio may walk free, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey get the last laugh. Without the racist sheriff’s antics, the two journalists may have never founded their Frontera Foundation. The Frontera Fund has proved invaluable to countless efforts for equal human rights and immigrant opportunities.

Larkin and Lacey’s legacy will forever be remembered as a piece of poetic justice against a man so vile as to base the vaue of human life on something as trivial as nationality.
