T.T. O’Brien slices and dices the noise around Apple’s retail chief Angela Ahrendts and why she’s leaving the company.
Apple’s chief retail honcho is leaving the company in the spring. Not yesterday. Not today. Months from now. Since Apple and APPL have been on the ropes recently, and the company’s financial performance could barely reach the second best ever in corporate history, or in the history of the world, blame has to go somewhere.
Critics look for blame.
Blame Angela Ahrendts instead of Tim Cook or the recession in China. After all, when things go wrong, attribution is the first item on the fix it list, right?
What do the tea leaves say about Ahrendts departure?
Sometimes a tea leaf is just a tea leaf.
