"Everyone recommends that IBM break up into many more companies. This is the most stupid idea I´ve ever heard. It´s very much like talking to an army that´s having difficulty and saying what we really need to do is to divide our army up into 12 armies and let them do whatever they please and that will help us win the war. They´re not too large. You can´t be too large, you can´t be too good-looking or too rich. The idea is nonsense. IBM has a management problem. To manage it, they need to have a coherent strategy."
