How creative companies destroy themselvs

Dick Brass, a former vice-president at Microsoft, has an insightful commentary in the Sunday, February 7, 2010 edition of the  New York Times about how Microsoft (MSFT) “no longer brings us the future.”  If you are interested in Microsoft, the technology business or creative companies I highly recommend this article.  It points out, among other things, how rivalries among divisions can impede growth and development.  It also shows how being the leader in a business group can eventually be a barrier to continued success.  His article is more balanced than one might expect.
