RIM needs to wake up and smell defeat.

Their phones basically 'suck' for lack of a better word. Everyone at my company has been BB client for 10+ years. I have had every BB starting from the original bulky one. They do one thing well and thats email. A few other apps work well but by large phones are two slow and all have OS issues running other apps. Every one of mine and my colleagues BB's would crash once a week. Finally, we dumped BB, switched to Andorid based Droidx2's and went with google apps. We have push email and phones that actually function well. As far as our small business is concerned, RIM is irrelevant.

#1 step---"Get Rid of Balsillie and Lazaridis", but 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. RIMG«÷s management may be a typical instance in MBA course.

This culture deny or steal hardworking team membersG«÷ 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.
