Break up Microsoft? Are you kidding me?

microsoftMicrosoft is attempting to transform a divisive corporate culture that is making it difficult to innovate. At my business blog, I want to explore the heart of Microsoft’s corporate issues, and offer some thoughts about it’s new strategy moving forward.

I don’t claim to be any type of insider. And I admit that even though I’m Microsoft certified, I prefer to use a Mac, do all my web development in php, linux, and mysql, and generally have a dislike of Microsoft.

Yet at the same time, I’m not out to destroy the company. Competition is a key to innovation, and more innovation is a good thing in a capitalist economy. I’m just wondering aloud if splitting up the company would be more beneficial for the legacy of company instead of trying to move forward with a reorganization strategy.

Culture trumps strategy every time, and in many cases its best to just kill the culture by breaking up the company than trying to change a company’s culture.

Head over and give me your thoughts. I would love to hear them!
