"By fighting trends, like telecommuting, Ms. Mayer's focus on tactics further damages Yahoo - which desperately needs a CEO with vision to create a new strategy."
Yahoo has been a struggling company for several years.
...Yahoo has lacked an effective strategy for a decade. ..It has no technology advantage, no product advantage and no market advantage. It is so weak in all markets that its only value has been as a second competitor that keeps the market leader from being attacked as a monopolist!
A series of CEOs have been unable to develop a new strategy for Yahoo to make it more like Amazon or Apple and less like – well, Yahoo.
...Ms. Mayer was brought into the flailing company from Google, which is a market leader, to turn around Yahoo. But she’s been on the job 7 months, and there still is no apparent strategy to return Yahoo to greatness.
