Yahoo! Creates Buzz Over Rumors of Cutbacks & "Peanut Butter"

Nov 20, 2006 • 7:32 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Yahoo News

An internal memo reportedly from Yahoo!'s Senior VP, Brad Garlinghouse was posted at the WSJ and at Kedrosky that he thinks Yahoo! needs to cut back by 15 to 20%. In short, Yahoo! has invested in everything and anything and has too much of the same thing making it confusing, redundant and overly costly. They lack a focus, "clarity of ownership and accountability", "decisiveness," and "vision." The peanut butter thing has to do with, "Yahoo is spreading its resources too thinly, like peanut butter on a slice of bread."
