re: Cisco's Chambers Glows at N+I I think Cisco has lot of overhead in terms of
managers too. The reason why Cisco won the
rowing competition is because they hired H1B
slave workers for rowing and told them if they
finish first they will file for their green card
application right away.

what a loser :-)

You forgot to mention that the Cisco canoe crashed and the H1B slave workers drowned. Nortel's canoe was 5-9s, NEBS compliant, and OSMINE certified. The canoe weighed three times what Cisco's did because of the canoe management system and backup power, not to mention the 48 VDC batteries.

Cisco canoes suck!

re: Cisco's Chambers Glows at N+I Could someone explain why the Light readers have so much fascination with CEO and Presidents of companies. Afterall engineers run these companies by developing products. Why hold CEOs responsible for a company's failure or success?

re: Cisco's Chambers Glows at N+I It's because the executive row makes the decisions that shape the company. You can have the best developers in the world on your team, but if you as an exec makes a bad decision, the company as a whole will take the hit.

Remember, the engineers are just lineworkers. They do what they're told and that's that.

re: Cisco's Chambers Glows at N+I Why the facination with CEOs?

It's fairly simple, about everyone can build a better hamburger than McDonalds. However, very few people can build a better business system.

Engineers build hamburgers, Management is what provides the vision and builds the business system. It is the business system that generates the money, which is what shareholders care about.

I don't want to diminish the importance of engineers, but even the greatest products will fizzle without a solid business system around it, while a great business system can make a mediocre product successful.

Engineers build products, management runs companies. The management is held responsible for the failure or success of the company, because that is what they are there for, to run the business and are accountable externally. Engineers are held accountable internally by management for the product itself.

The CEO just provides a focal point, after all, if a company fails, there are to many places for that failure to have occurred. It could have been anyone of the business systems (eng, mktg, sales, etc). The CEO, specifically, is responsible for them all.

re: Cisco's Chambers Glows at N+I This may be true, but the Nortel canoe is unfortunately severly restricted by using a super, incredibly lightweight material to skin the canoe made from - Nortel Share certificates. This new, lightwieght material has an uncanny ability to sink lower in the water as time goes on, making the poor rower work up to three times harder in the closing stages of the race to go the same distance.

Check out the URL for more information on the market value of this new, lightweigt material:
