I can't remember for sure if it was Dr. Tufte or another professor that mentioned how Wal Mart has gotten away from what made it big-customer service. Perhaps the problem links to the fact as Wal Mart gets bigger it moves farther and farther away from its roots. I'm sure some people would like to blame this problem on the heirs of Sam Walton.

What does this have to do with ManEc?

BTW: it was not me who said this about Wal-Mart Sandy.
