How Infighting Hampers Innovation at Microsoft

Garabito writes “Dick Brass, former vice-president at Microsoft, published an op-ed in The New York Times, where he states that ‘Microsoft has become a clumsy, uncompetitive innovator’ and how ‘it has lost share in Web browsers, high-end laptops and smartphones.’ He attributes this situation to the lack of a true system for innovation at Microsoft. Some former employees argue that Microsoft has a system to thwart innovation. He tells how promising and innovative technologies like ClearType and the original TabletPC concept become crippled and sabotaged internally, by groups and divisions that feel threated by them.”
