Ken Melrose: Making the Grass Greener on Your Side Francesca Maria Fernandez Florida International University Abstract Faced with a major financial burden in the 1980's that threatened the success and overall survival of the organization, the Toro company, was becoming more and more accustomed to lawsuits due to inherent hazards associated with using their machinery. In 1983, Kendrick B. Melrose took over as CEO and was able to overcome his company's financial plummet by turning to empathy for an answer. He developed an approach called “Alternate Dispute Resolution” to deal with the accidents or serious injuries associated to their products. The new approach suggested that the company would now show empathy by personally talking to the customers affected by their products to understand what happened, instead of going straight to the legal process. Ken Melrose believed that if there was a situation where someone was ready for a fight and you looked them in the eye and genuinely said, “I am very sorry this happened,” it almost instantly takes the animosity out of the equation.

In the early day of radio and TV broadcasting of baseball, many owners saw its introduction as a threat to attendances; this was the same with soccer also. Soon after their disputes with radio and TV broadcasters, owners of baseball and soccer franchises saw the media as not only another source of revenue but also as an effective means of promoting interest in their teams. The creation of ESPN in 1979 combined with the growth of TVs in households from the 50s to the 90s contributed to the cable sports boom in America. This helped MLB’s annual TV revenue increase from $1.195million in 1956 to $365million in 1990. Similar events were seen with soccer franchises however the revenue from media is always unequally distributed between the top flight teams and lower league teams.
