I was honored to join Horace Dediu on his new interview podcast, High Density.
We spent a fair bit of time on Microsoft and Steve Ballmer, but also touched on Apple, functional versus divisional organizations, and more. I hope you enjoy it.
Some relevant links from Stratechery:
- Why Microsoft’s Reorganization Is a Bad Idea
- The Uncanny Valley of a Functional Organization
- Apple the Black Swan
The John Kay piece I reference is called Sometimes the best that a company can hope for is death. Really great.
