When Will Microsoft Go Out of Business?

Who: Ken Schwaber, Advanced Development Methods, Inc

When: September 25, 2007

One reason to go out of business is that your competition takes away your customers with better, more-innovative, higher quality products. There are ways to slow the loss of your customers, but the end can be modeled. This workshop will look at how to model when Microsoft will go out of business, why it will go out of business, and some things it could undertake to slow this trend down or reverse it. The same techniques that we’ll use for looking at Microsoft can be used applied to any business that systems, including your own.
