Yahoo realigns its top-notch management team

Terry Semel throws some folks overboard while Yahoo figures out new ways to get its ass kicked by Google. I never went to business school, but I’m pretty sure this is something they teach you in management 101, in the chapter titled, “What to Do When You’re Frigged.” Option #1: Fire some lieutenants and announce a reorg. Squirrel Boy tells me this is a sure sign that a CEO has no idea what he’s doing. (He should know, having been at Sun and then Novell.) Apparently consultants even have a name for this maneuver: “When in doubt, throw someone out.”
