    "It's been less than two months since Microsoft announced a sweeping reorganization of its business in an attempt to reignite competition with faster-moving rivals such as Apple and Google."

    Microsoft needs a culture overhaul, if it is to compete well with Apple and Google. And changing corporate culture isn't easy - it usually fails.

    Microsoft can start with the way they treat employees - get rid of the competitive culture where team members compete against each other for the best performance reviews and instead reward a culture of innovation and teamwork.

    It is about time. It has been 13 years of mismanagement by Ballmer, as every other tech company has danced around the ponderous bureaucracy at Redmond. The board should have taken this step years ago.
