Agreed, assuming they know the best way to do that. Often they appease their shareholders in the short term, which leads to their demise in the long term.Polaris cares about sales and keeping their shareholders happy. Period. If it means appeasing the owners and it didn't eat into the profits too deeply, they will do it all day.
I agree. Let's pull it and try to come up with a different one. Thx!IMHO the poll is simply too limited — almost either/or. It’s a spectrum. No massive corporation can respond with alacrity to every tiny customer complaint. It’s like moving a supertanker.
The key is not the mothership — it’s the dealers. They take care of the day-to-day issues. They handle tactics while Polaris handles strategy. And responsiveness to owner feedback Is difficult for us to read. There are marketing and product development teams that handle that stuff. And a bunch of liability lawyers. We may send in feedback, we may answer surveys, but who knows how much weight these are given in the boardroom?
You got that right,when the office personal grows faster than the hourly employees,I like to call that top heavy,then the pay cuts and large turnover of hourly employees,mark the death roll for a companyOrganizational Dysfunction, or rather the amount of it within the company is clear here.
If a manager does not like a brilliant, 'punk' codewriter and prefers a buttsmooch ticket puncher, game over.
Polaris is big enough to have Gamma's in positions of authority, organizational poison. Just look at H-D.
Gort in a funny way you nail it! You owe me a keyboard! I spit my coffee all over it reading your post!I'm sure they care about us because we are their beta testers and if not for us, who else would help them work out their issues on clacking, Ride command glitches, Chieftain fuel rail pinching issues, Challenger misfiring, Gear sensor malfunctions, Scout starter issues, FTR fueling issues, FTR map issues, etc., etc. ,etc. They would have to solve these issues at the factory thru months and months of testing with paid employees, unable to sell bikes until all that is properly worked thru. We are all valuable unpaid test monkeys and they love us dearly.
