Mini-Microsoft: ‘Cut Once, Cut Deep, Cut Quickly’

Mini-Microsoft on today’s Microsoft layoff announcement:

That’s why I hope that Cut Quickly happens. Without it, we’re back to our first layoff experience. If anything broke the back of this blog, it was the first big Microsoft layoff back in 2009. How? How could the realization of a step towards Mini-Microsoft do that? Because it was implemented so poorly, with constant worries and concerns and doubts about engaging in new ideas due to expectations those would be the easiest to trim during ongoing cut-backs. When was it over? When was the “all clear” signal given?

So if this truly drags on for a year: we need a new leader. This needs to be wrapped up by the end of July. 2014.
