Remember a few weeks ago when everyone thought Palm was about to be sold? First we thought it was Nokia that would buy the struggling smartphone maker, then we thought that it would be Motorola that would take over the company.
Well, according to Palm Inc. CEO Ed Colligan is off the auction block. He told Bloomberg News “that he is ignoring calls to sell the phone maker and is focused on winning back sales lost to competitors like Research In Motion Ltd.”
I can only worry about how the business is performing and what can we do as a team to do better, to get our products out faster, to drive for higher reliability, to grab more market share
I have just one question…
At what point is it not the focus of a public companies CEO to “worry about how the business is performing and what can ‘they’ do as a team to do better, to get ‘their’ products out faster, to drive for higher reliability, to grab more market share?”
Back in college I had a chemistry professor that had a token phrase that he used all the time. “An act of lunacy can be defined as doing the same thing over and over and thinking that you are going to get a different result.”
Hopefully this is not the case for Palm…
