Google Gets Some Product Discipline? October 6, 2006Posted by David Card in Media.
I’ll believe it when I see it. Google says it’s going to take control of its previously haphazard product strategy:
- In another sign of Google Inc.’s growth from start-up to corporate behemoth, the company’s top executives said Thursday that they had begun telling engineers to stop launching so many new services and instead focus on making existing ones work together better.
Talking out of both sides of my mouth, I hope this sensible move doesn’t stifle Google, or detract from its crazy-cool image. This Jupiter framework can help you get your mind around which products and initiatives Google’s most likely to be serious about.
