Wahre Worte

Aus einem Memo des (mittlerweile: Ex-) CEOs von Sun zur Übernahme durch Oracle:

[…] I’ve also led, and been a part of many, many acquisitions at Sun, both large and small. From those experiences, I’ve learned one very clear lesson–the single most important driver of a successful acquisition are the people involved–and how committed they are to the new owner’s mission.
And the most effective mechanism I’ve seen for driving that commitment begins with a simple, but emotionally difficult step.
Upon change in control, every employee needs to emotionally resign from Sun. Go home, light a candle, and let go of the expectations and assumptions that defined Sun as a workplace. Honor and remember them, but let them go.
For those that ultimately won’t become a part of Oracle, this will be the first step in a new adventure. […]

Da ist was wahres dran …
