Julie Juliet, MSEE, Ph.D. is the President and CEO, Robotex, Inc. An “idea” that Julie Juliet had, as a young girl, to help Patient Care Assistants perform their jobs in a safer manner is what drove Julie to earn a Ph.D. in Robotics. This focused drive and tenacity, eventually earned her the position of President and CEO of an $800M privately held company. Eight years after being one of the four founders of Robotex, she was charged with doing what was necessary to take the company public via an IPO. As a part of the process, the Robotex Board of Directors hired an independent investigator to perform a “due diligence” review of the company. The review included all aspects of the company’s operations, including the background of Robotex’s senior management team. Following the review, Julie began to discover that, even though she had significantly developed her executive leadership skills, she had missed a vital executive skill — sound decision-making. The independent investigation unveiled three poor decisions that Julie made over the previous eight years that would unfortunately torpedo the company’s IPO and alter its future.
