Wal-mart: Mike Duke (CEO)

With the myriad of challenges (pepper spray, walkouts, health care) that Wal-mart faces daily, the last thing they needed was instability at the top.

Clearly, Wal-mart knows how to grow. They are facing today an overlooked and more important aspect of running a company: how to inspire. Turnover at the top will not help them deal with problems at the base of the pyramid. As the latest CEO retires, an inflection, and possibly reflection, point is upon the world’s largest retail employer.
