I make my living repairing companies with issues similar to these. Almost every time, it comes down to a percieved lack of appreciation which is caused by a toxic lack (or ban) of honest communication. In my experience, those 2 items are a direct result of narcissistic leadership that will not allow good ideas to come from anywhere but themselves.Manoah2u wrote: ↑Sun Jun 24, 2018 11:27 amlet's get things really rolling and bring on some tinfoil stuff......
could there be any possibilty of sabotage?
Whitmarsh -somehow- still works at Mclaren despite getting the boot a couple years ago and nobody knowing what happened to him (i remember that discussion here),
Ron came back and there was a lot of discomfort top to bottom, Ron supposedly tried some sort of coup with (chinese?) investors and then was shown the exit, that VW guy
got hired and immediately sacked, Zak got appointed, Bouillier still there (somehow), arguments with Honda, expected, calculated results stay out both from Honda aswell
as Mclaren, Honda is out yet no change at Mclaren, and now there is a employee riot which was also 'prompted' by sacking Tim Goss....and now the chaos is complete @ Mclaren.
In any case, the environment is surely to blame, it's a gigantic mess @ woking, that much is clear.
At the same time, how can - after all those years - the team still be so far from anything 'good' ?
I know it's reaching, sure. Just a thought pattern i'd be curious to see into.
There have been several mentions about the circumstances @ Ferrari too before, regarding Mattiacci for example.
It doesn't take long to fix. New leadership that just has to listen and actually implement some ideas from the workforce. I personally sit everyone down to interview when I'm brought in, and the last question I ask is "What one thing should we do, yesterday?"
I take that entire list, build an implementation strategy, and get miraculous results.
The workers KNOW what needs to be done. Debacles like this stem from leaders that refuse to value the synergistic ideas of all levels of its workforce.
