Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz is out. TAGGED: Yahoo
Her tenure was largely a disappointing one, though she doesn't get enough credit for straightening out Yahoo's finances, overhauling some of its backend systems, and getting out of a lot of businesses Yahoo shouldn't have been in. What she should have done, and failed to do, as all her predecessors have, is articulate a vision for what Yahoo must be.
This will be the task of whoever the next Yahoo CEO is: a) articulate a strong, compelling vision for the company and b) execute on it. Both aspects are crucial.
What should that vision be?
