retail news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Yahoo Finance has an interview with Walmart CEO Doug McMillon in which he talks about chief learnings from the pandemic.

"I bet it [the pandemic] has changed everybody in some way. When I think about what I have learned, the two words that come to the top of the list for me are courage and speed. What I have seen from associates and our leadership team related to those two things has been super impressive," said McMillon, who added, "I think I have learned even more to let people move quickly, think big and not let bureaucracy slow us down. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Get on with the things that are most important. I think we have moved faster as a result, and that has changed me as a leader."
