What's the Next Microsoft and Who are you?

I am a Microsoft manager who sees lots of the good we do here at the company, but I also see a lot of the bad. I have recently been inspired by Lisa Brummel's listening tour and some other feedback forums (as well as Mini Microsoft and other online forums) to start posting my thoughts about making Microsoft better.

The reason I chose this title is because I hear people talk about "Who is going to be the Next Microsoft" that experiences similar growth and arguably great results. I want Microsoft to be the Next Microsoft. And I figured I would write down some thoughts on changes that may help us accomplish this.

So look for some hopefully brilliant ideas/suggestions/finger-pointing on the good and bad at MSFT. I know there are those that believe change can't happen, but I refuse to buy in to that belief.
