Tyco Demanding More Profits!

There's an interesting SSN article talking about how Tyco's management team is demanding higher profits. Here's the money quote from an analyst:

"We are now convinced that Tyco, at least in North America, is deadly serious about discipline in demanding a fair margin for their value proposition and walking away when they believe the margin does not warrant it"

What do you think? Have you seen any impact of this in your business? Do you think this is good for the industry?


Was this article actually in The Onion and SSN reposted it not realizing? If TYCO were serious about "demanding a fair margin for their value proposition" they would have to pay me for the "service" they provide.

Wow, This is not the Tyco I have competed against over the years. It is about owning the market whatever the cost.

Low ball NMWTC. Contracts, Contract, Contracts (Just #'s) They don't even show up to the bid job walks

Maybe they decided to play ball on a level playing field with the rest of the world. This is great for the industry. Now maybe the Value can come back to the marketplace .
