Viz http://www.vanityfair.com/online/daily/2012/07/microsoft-downfall-emails-steve-ballmer.print, a komentáře pod článkem. Některé věci jsou opravdu hloupé:
Eichenwald’s conversations reveal that a management system known as “stack ranking”—a program that forces every unit to declare a certain percentage of employees as top performers, good performers, average, and poor—effectively crippled Microsoft’s ability to innovate. “Every current and former Microsoft employee I interviewed—every one—cited stack ranking as the most destructive process inside of Microsoft, something that drove out untold numbers of employees,” Eichenwald writes. “If you were on a team of 10 people, you walked in the first day knowing that, no matter how good everyone was, 2 people were going to get a great review, 7 were going to get mediocre reviews, and 1 was going to get a terrible review,” says a former software developer. “It leads to employees focusing on competing with each other rather than competing with other companies.”
. . . Microsoft had a prototype e-reader ready to go in 1998 . . .
Ve shodě s některými komentáři nevidím budoucnost Microsoftu nijak černě – Windows 8, Surface, Xbox i Office vypadají z mého pohledu stále slibně.
A Microsoft vydělává 🙂
