Innovative Function FedEx Had Spent Thesis

Excerpt from Thesis :

Yet, the result of their failure to achieve innovation in the wake of their purchase of Kinko's resulted in significant losses, writedowns and a loss of both prestige and market share. FedEx experienced this failure on several levels. They failed to adapt their culture to accommodate the differences between the two organizations, a move that stifled innovation. Moreover, they failed to place emphasis at the organizational level on the importance of innovation to the success of the merger. As a result, employees and managers in both companies were rudderless - they understood neither the need for innovation to the merger nor the importance of it.
