Very interesting read

Audit Report – Fiscal Year 2009 Standard Mail Volume Incentive Program (Report Number FF-AR-10-196)

“Postal Service outsiders — including the PRC’s public representatives — have also questioned the Postal Service’s methods for calculating reported revenue and volume increases. The public representatives found that using methods more closely aligned with those initially considered by the PRC in approving the Summer Sale suggests the Postal Service may actually have lost money on the FY 2009 program.”

How the U.S. Postal Service can save itself

without comments

To build a workable future, USPS can’t incrementally change its present. To span a chasm, you can’t build a bridge one stick at a time. Instead, USPS needs to start with the future and work backward to the present. It needs to forecast volumes for all types of its business five, 10 and 15 years out and design a business model that will thrive under those scenarios. Only then can it figure out what radical changes need to be made now. In other words, USPS needs to first design the whole bridge, then build it.

Paul B. Carroll and Chunka Mui – How the U.S. Postal Service can save itself.

Good food for thought!
