McDonald’s: facing fat -a marketing problem or a strategic muddle?

I came across this story. I feel a new classic is in the making -how a strategic muddle is sought be treated by marketing cover-ups. Read on.. QUOTE McDonald’s: facing fat The 50-year-old firm temporarily diverged from its mascot Ronald McDonald in Japan for a fling with a glamorous twenty-something model.

On top of the misjudged “I’m lovin’ it” slogan and makeovers that have delivered some of the chain’s outlets in the livery of French-style bistros (aka the Champs Elysées), the latest moves have the mark of a company that knows it has a problem, but does not know how to solve it.
