Impeaching Bill (G.)

Ik kwam via OSNews bij deze best wel grappig column met een leuke oplossing voor het Mikroschoft probleem: 'Impeaching Bill' . Een stukje:

reak up Microsoft? "Too unfair," some say. Restrict trade? "A violation of free enterprise," others cry. Split operating system from applications? "Too difficult," others pine.

I have a solution. Let the punishment fit the crime. What's the charge? Unbridled ambition. Pure aggression. Growth without appropriate restraint.

So what's the suitable punishment? Give them a taste of "growth through attrition" and "success through reduction." Let someone like former DEC CEO Robert Palmer take over the helm of Microsoft.

Palmer, a man whom many former DEC employees blame for DEC's eventual demise, took a bleeding company and "healed" it by slicing off all parts that bled. Of course, all the cutting led to more bleeding, which demanded more cutting. So, by the time the "healing" was done, DEC was little more than an immobile torso, deprived of most of its assets and going nowhere fast. At that time, Palmer declared the patient "healed" and sold off the carcass for dog food.

Needless to say, you wouldn't consider bringing even the most bothersome stray cat to a veterinarian who practiced the "healing arts" in this manner. Yet Palmer walked away with a reported $40M (US) for his efforts. Who would have guessed that prowess in butchering would be that profitable?

But, consider the effects of such techniques upon Microsoft. Let the "fat" be trimmed from the company. "Refocus" the corporation on "core competencies." Eliminate "redundant" and "unessential" activities. Make it the model for such "enlightened" business activities.

De andere helftp mag je hier halen.
