Abstract: in June 2013, I had a drink with Lei Jun where I had a chat, and I had a very unpleasant chat. Lei bluntly, said this is where the blind expansion of a previous era, enterprises in the future will be like millet, to the user demand, I thought you do millet developed, also need not to embarrass me.
in 2011, where the most lively, there are more than 13000 people in the company, President of light level leadership has thirty or forty customers, but step by step in crisis. Now, there are fewer than 300 customers, and the core team of the shirt is only 7 people, but the business is running smoothly. I can’t help thinking, so many people used to do,
in retrospect, the more lively the company is, the more people are going to burn it. Where customers have been in order to achieve annual sales target of 10 billion, pushing down the need to expand the number of categories, how many SKU (inventory unit), how many people need to undertake such business?.
