Re: CEOs Blame
> "Google has continued to change its algorithms to deliver the best search results. Maybe Yahoo didn't do that..."

Yahoo arguably wasn't in the same business as Google. You seem to think that Google is in the search business, but it's not. It's in the advertising business. And Google's *real* algorithm that makes it money isn't the one that improves its search results for end users, but the bidding algorithms for AdWords/AdSense.... Yahoo and other companies that had search engines never came close to creating the same kind of competitive market for keywords -- not because they didn't have decent search results, but because they didn't have the right algorithms for making advertisers fight each other to pay for the privilege of placing links near related searches.

Microsoft has proven that consumers don't really care about the difference in search result quality that much... but for whatever reason, users don't really switch.

Well, there was that one time when Yahoo could have bought Google....

Google has continued to change its algorithms to deliver the best search results. Maybe Yahoo didn't do that or their algorithms just weren't up to snuff. Either way they were definitely left in the dust at the thing they were supposed to be best at.

Either they wanted a captain to go down with the ship or they actually thought she would be able to turn it around.

Re: Yahoo
It would be interesting to go back at the time of the rise of Google to see if you could pinpoint where Google started to take over and if there was anything Yahoo could have done to hold on.

Re: CEOs Blame
@mpouraryan, great vision for effective leadership.  And the right leaders make change a winning proposition for everyone.  The example of Uber, as you stated, is where developing the best solution does not turn out to be the driving force.

Note:  It usually leads to collapse at some point - Case in point!
