Les McKeown's Predictable Success Blog
Yahoo doesn’t do much better out of the deal, either. Carol Bartz may get revenue, but revenue isn’t her problem – her problem is loss of focus in the organization. And the way the Microsoft deal is structured there are plenty of open loops (as David Allen would put it) that will continue to suck resources and energy away from Yahoo’s main mission (whatever that is today). A complete divestiture of search would have been a much better outcome for Yahoo, but I sense the invested egos of some of the behind-the-scenes players wouldn’t allow it.
