Executives are judged on the integrity of their field heavies

Senior executives of franchises have a big problem:

They have to rely on their subordinates to “manage” their franchisees.

These middle- and lower-level supervisors can quickly degenerate, self-select or be developed into a cynical prison guard mentality (see Stanford prison experiment).

A publicly-traded company’s market reputation is based on those who act very much like a prison officer screw:

The slang word screw originated in the Victorian era when a prison warder or officer would give a prisoner a pointless task as a punishment.

A well-run Attorneyless Franchisee Network tests and diagnoses all levels of managers.

Some pass the test.

Lots don’t.
