Dina Bass on Microsoft moving to a faster software upgrade cycle, being driven by the acquisitions of companies like Yammer:
“What you realize when you begin to be very data-driven is a very large percentage of our ideas are bad,” said Yammer’s Pisoni.
Sure, but shouldn’t an emphasis be put on not pushing out bad ideas in the first place?
Microsoft should have changed to a cycle like this five years ago. Also, to MG’s point, if they’re failing fast and experimenting in small ways and building up to bigger ones, I think it’s not nearly as questionable as it sounds.
