Wrong Focus At Lotus

WRONG FOCUS AT LOTUS

In "Can Jim Manzi get out of this Lotus position?" (News: Analysis & Commentary, May 8), I believe this is another case of a consultant that came to dinner and would not go home. Cutting costs and firing people is good to a certain extent. But eventually you must concentrate on product development, marketing, and building your people assets. Lotus has failed to do so.

Notes could have been a huge success. I hate to agree with Bill Gates, but CEO Manzi dropped the ball on Ami-Pro, Lotus for the Macintosh, and finally, the cash cow Lotus for IBM.
