Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
As I noted, lessons to be learnt no doubt--but the ecosystem she helped transform that helped sustain is, in my view, commendable...if only the start up I work for, The Daily Outsider, could have 1%  percent of the monetized  traffic :) :)  I have to check myself on this point, though: Be careful what you wish for :) :)

Re: CEOs Blame
The right leader will welcome change and expect vibrant debate--I would suggest that Uber was the perfect example that finally forced Travis K to quit--qlthough he and his minimons still keep control which bodes ill for it long-term.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@mpouraryan, great assessment.  Yes, you cannot have two high-performing Googles.  When you try the copying route, you end up with the risk of becoming just a utility - which cannot support profits and ongoing development.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@mpouraryan, good example of some positive contributions she made.  Not everythiing was a failure.  She just was not able to turn it around in time to recapture the competitiveness it once held.

Re: CEOs Blame
@freehe, good point about the Board.  The Boards do not typically change, so they provide significant continuinty - whether positive or negative.

Re: Yahoo didn't have a Steve Jobs...
As I noted before, it is a solid lesson in leadership that needs to be studied no doubt.     I am more concerned about what Farhad Mahjoo referred to as the "Frightful Eight" as they get the be ever so stronger.

She tried to be "Google" in some ways--and there can only be one Google--just like there is one Facebook.    Let's see what Verizon does now with its' 50+ properties out there.   It will be interesting--needless to say :)

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
There is no question the "seeds of decline" were set long before Marissa Meyer came on board--some of their forays (for instance Tumblr) was an interesting move--I still have a Tumblr blog, for instance-and have my account on Flickr--Yahoo will endure under Oath and I am sure Tim Armstrong will intergrate it all with his penachat for automation>

Re: CEOs Blame
Yahoo's decline is a test case of what "not to do"..We need to remember We used to say "Yahoo" before we know say "google" right?   Yahoo forgot its' mission--but Google hasn't despite its' foray into driverless cars/etc.--the mission remains the same--as for instance with its' foray now into Jobs (which I think entities like Glassdoor/etc. should be concered about)....
