Yahoo: Pulling an Elephant out of a Tarpit

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Yahoo is an Internet pioneer. Somewhere along the way, our size got ahead of our ability to execute to the point that we slowed to a halt. This is a story of a multi-year journey of us fighting back and regaining our groove: innovating and executing at warp drive speed.

Come hear lessons that we learned along the way, profit from our mistakes, avoid dead ends and frustration, cry and laugh with us.
