Yeah, Ford is as good as gone, leaving the Newgen operation to rot like a spoiled tomato. Tuchman sure did goof when he let Thompson go on that acquisition frenzy. By the time he returned to the controls it was too late. 300 million down the drain. Hope Scott is enjoying his retirement.
It's their MO with CRM. The action is about to be transferred to a new start-up company discretely owned and controlled by Ford insiders. The VP's have to have some outsourcing side-action going on to achieve their retirement goals. I'll bet they won't use "results" again in the start-up's name. It'll probably be something with "solutions" in the title. That sap Thompson bought a bag of air, just took a couple of years to deflate is all.
