re: 5 Things RIM Must Do In 2012
#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. RIMGÇÖs management may be a typical instance in MBA course.
This culture deny or steal hardworking team membersGÇÖ 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.
