Assignment: Final Research Paper On Microsoft

1106 words - 4 pages

Introduction:There are many things that Microsoft has done to be successful in the industry they are in but there are other things that they have done to make themselves unsuccessful. Microsoft has had many ups and downs since they were founded in 1975. They started out with MS-DOS, then they made MS Word, then to replace MS-DOS was Windows, then the upgrade from just Word came MS Office, then to replace Windows came Windows 95 then Windows 98 then Windows XP and now where they are having some trouble is Windows Vista. They have been successful with almost every product that they have came out with but like everyone know it takes a few years for them to work out all of the bugs.Decision Making:Certain individuals in organizations make the decisions. There are many ways that decisions are made in organizations. But most decisions that are significant are made by judgment rather than rationally. Microsoft has made some bad decisions over their long time period of being around. They used to be the leader in the computer industry but over the last couple of years they have made major downturn in being a leader in the industry. Instead of spending money on playing dirty in the industry it should have been spent on making a better product rather than talking bad about other companies and/or people. Microsoft has always been good at controlling the media and the public but now the games that they have played are over. Everyone is starting to see where Microsoft is headed and they are not sure if it is going to a good place for them. The public needs a leader for an industry now supporting billions of computers, but Microsoft is not that leader. It's a gigantic and often grotesque follower (Dvorak, 2008, para.4). Microsoft has been dirty over the year and this bad reputation has finally caught up with them. Now that Windows Vista is having problems they need to figure out what they are going to do about it and not try to bad mouth everyone else. Microsoft has seen better day, like an athlete at the end of a career. Some endings are good, some are bad. I hope Microsoft will find one of the good ways (Dvorak, 2008, para.12).Motivation:We define motivation as the processes that account for an individual's intensity, direction, and persistence of effort toward attaining a goal (Robbins, 2005, pg.170). Intensity is how hard a person tries, direction is how it benefits the organization, and persistence is dimension. Motivation is something that every organization should have but in some case they do not. In case you hadn't noticed, there's been a massive shift of interest among the digerati from Microsoft Windows Vista to the largely vaporware Windows 7 (Ulanoff, 2008, para.1). This shows that the Vista market is totally screwed up since Windows 7 came about. But Microsoft says that Vista is a big hit but after they offered Windows XP to consumers they were all going back to XP. If Microsoft does not want to see something bad happen to their market in the next...
