Re: yawn Yeah really, one of the former giants of mobile broadband consumption has a big shake up and it makes the front page? What is this a broadband news blog or something?

Excuse me... I believe I requested the RIM job.
Come on folks, you knew that was coming. Just had to get it out of the thread's system early on.
Re: Too little too late?
said by FFH:Messaging and the back end management is what made BlackBerry what it was. I agree with you that competitors are quickly catching up/passing RIM. I also don't believe RIM is a turnaround story. It will eventually go the way of Palm IMHO.
Their secure messaging infrastructure is why they still exist at all and still accounts for the majority of their revenue. But even there the competitors are catching up quickly.
Re: Too little too late? Meet the new boss...same as the old boss? This is all that needs to be said.
said by All Things D :How's this for not needing drastic change?
I dont think there is a drastic change needed.
No surprise there, given that Heins, RIMs former chief operating officer, has been at the company for the past four years. If RIM really wanted someone to blow things up and start over again, theyd bring in an outsider.
not coCEO, some of their VPs and VPs's expert destroy RIM Don't blame CEO, they want RIM win.
RIM has strange culture and self distruct political environment.
In RIM if a new hired person figure out major problem and introduce efficient approach, both manager and his buddy group member will proof their wrong approach works. just like someone point out driving a car is right way, pushing a car is wrong way, then both manager and his buddy group member will hate you, and proof that 3 person can also move the car by pushing it. cheating email will be sent to some vice president, saying like: see, the car moving, pushing a car is a natural part of the process, in order to deny new hired contribution of introducing skill of drive a car, they have to deny merit of driving a car.
It is very strange company culture and strange company political environment, it promote stealing and cheating skill. RIM's management may be a typical instance in MBA course.
This culture deny or steal hardworking team members' contribution/innovation, generate strange political environment, destroy RIM.
So don't blame CEO, some of their VPs and VPs' expert generate terrible culture and self destruct political environment.
