Microsoft

The Microsoft CEO succession process appears to be stalled. This is a company with immense human, technical, and financial resources; the tech industry is filled with intelligent, energetic, dedicated candidates. What's wrong with the matchmaking process?

The gist: Microsoft needs someone strong enough to stand up to the old guard still looking over everyone's shoulder (Gates and Ballmer) - and essentially dismiss them - since the company needs to look to the future, not the past.

Good luck with that.

I made no mention of enterprise IT because it was implied by the comment I replied to: stop catering to enterprise, try to become another fashion giant (Apple). Metro seems to be part of that failing strategy, as is everything made for Metro, what with the App store and its mandatory 30% Microsoft tax.
