Time for Plan B?

Over the past week the Yahoo Plan B wiki has been gathering alot of press. Eric Jackson , who writes a business blog , recently took on the current problems at Yahoo!. He started the Yahoo! Wiki and published his thoughts on how Yahoo! could right their ship, with the hope that others would contribute as well — this has become Yahoo Plan B.

As with most backseat driving, most of the things Mr. Jackson outlines are obvious, but likley difficult to carry out. I do like his call for new technical leadership, which is something I feel is overlooked at most companies.

While I doubt any action will come from Yahoo!, I do hope those in power at least try to understand Mr.Jackson’s points without simply dismissing them.
