...Howard Schultz spoke at the convention about the company's turnaround as well and reminded us not once but about three times that the company's troubles "occurred while I was not CEO but I take full responsibility." - c0ffeen0te | Date: 3/29/2011 8:24:09 AM | Number: 2513

SBUX's troubles were Howard's responsibility. It was Howard who stepped away from the company for a time, before he returned. The troubles were Howard's doing while he was not on the "Bridge" of the ship.
