Consider the term sustainability, operability, manageability, feasibility and durability. The terms connote the thinking beyond the present state of operations but, look into the depth of the ecosystem and supply chain for growth and knowledge. The survivorship of companies that produce replicable products seeking new captive markets may not be the wining proposition. The news of Microsoft’s downturn in profits is not unlikely as the implementation of sustainability for a company like Micorsoft is relevant. The construct to identify “Microsoft Experiences Its Biggest Drop Of The Century As Shares Fall 12 Percent”may reveal how innovation and growth are produced.
Microsoft’s stock was downgraded and yet the whole health of the company is key. The continuity between stock and sustainability are huge factors that run in parallel and are in synthesis with planning. The news that “Microsoft shares (NASDAQ:MSFT) dropped 12.2 percent, representing the biggest single-day drop in over 13 years. On April 24, 2000, shares dropped 15.6 percent — since then, Microsoft has never experienced such a shelling. Yesterday, the company announced disappointed earnings and took a massive $900 million writedown due to unsold Surface Rts,” states Tech Crunch.
The term sustainability taken invasively can open the door to the companies probable success. My prediction is the Microsoft of today will no longer exist in ten years. Microsoft’s opportunity and life-cycle stage when analyzed may provide answers to the growth of Office 365 and Xbox Live Gold, Windows and Office.
“The stock closed at 35.44 a share yesterday. It hit 31.10 today and there is no sign of recovery in sight. For Q4, revenue came in at $19.9 billion and earnings per share were $0.59.”
What can be learned from a blazing company today is that success horizon is short while profit and expectations are long. Companies when using sustainability as the platform to manage change can lead to open opportunities for long-term stability that drives the company’s ecosystem.
