If you first don't succeed ...

by Volker Weber

I met Mike Lawrie when he was unable to run the OS/2 business unit. More recently he has been unable to run Siebel for a year or so. Now he receives a package of US$ 4.5 million package, leave or take a heap of stock options.

If you are not rich, then it's just because you are too smart. :-)


Expect him to show up again in a leading management position of a major company.

Wolfgang: You bet.
Volker: I don't think George Shaheen will do any better. I think Siebel has a structural problem (Salesforce.com etc.) and no new CEO is gonna change that.
