winners and losers in the PM software industry
It has been interesting to watch the evolution of products—many entering their second or even third decade of life. Those vendors that are still prospering are those that were willing to let go—they were open to change. Excessive pride is a sign of a self-centered view, of a lack of objectivity. Pride can be a demon, a failing that will stand in the way of flexible, dynamic development. Stewart Alsop referred to this as “tripping over their ego” when talking about Lotus losing position in the spreadsheet market.
