Blogs Reinvent The Exit Interview

Ken Norton, Yahoo’s senior director of product management at Yahoo! Inc., and co-founder of Grand Central Communications, one of my favorite companies, is jumping ship to JotSpot. Reason? In his own words: “I wanted a place where things get done with small teams of hungry, dedicated people. Companies where decisions are made not by steering committees, but by walking across the street to get coffee.” Despite their Silicon Valley locations, all not new anymore economy companies like Yahoo, Ebay, even Google are not as nimble as they would like us to believe. Still Ken Norton’s “public resignation” today, and Lenn Pryor’s earlier move to Skype announced via a similar missive, is giving a new meaning to the phrase, “exit interview.”
