Two recent comments, posted at Mini-Microsoft, have given me some food for thought. Please, read through and ...
- Oh by the way, there is the SmartWatch to look out for. You know - BillG's innovation that made the IEEE Spectrum list of the ten dumbest ideas of the year? LOL, that's the kind of innovation Microsoft is famous for!
- The sad fact is that our execs are now so very disconnected from the real morale/culture problem. They think that somehow just shipping more product will help. NOOO, that's not it. It's the fact that our execs don't understand what it's like to be an IC, to want to just get something done, get credit for it and get paid well to do it...and NOT be getting micro/process managed to death while you're doing it. That's it, plain and simple.
... answer: Could multi-(b/m)illionaries innovate on behalf, and for the benefit, of your average JOE?
Since the collective intelligence is more apt to tackle such a question, I invite you, the reader, to think about this. Your comments will be appreciated!
