His memo touted Mebert as an expert who could help the group "crisply define" its goals. Ray Mebert told the group that his credentials included work on Procter & Gamble Co.'s "Taste Bright Project," a supposedly secret effort to boost sales by improving the taste of soap. "There actually are some people who admitted in focus groups that they would sometimes taste soap," Mebert said. Executives nodded agreement. Mebert sneered at New Ventures' statement--"to provide Logitech with profitable growth and related new business areas"--and led an exercise in which managers suggested words and ideas that might become part of a new one. The new statement read: "The New Ventures Mission is to scout profitable growth opportunities in relationships, both internally and externally, in emerging, mission inclusive markets, and explore new paradigms and then filter and communicate and evangelize the findings.“ All of this was an elaborate prank orchestrated by Zappacosta.
