Marissa Mayer Is No Fool

HBR:

Let’s be serious: if significant portions of Yahoo top performers were “stay@home” coders, testers and project management telecommuters, do people really think Mayer would arbitrarily issue edicts guaranteed to alienate them?

We’re talking about someone who tested 41 shades of blue to see which yielded better results. My bet is that Yahoo has been so mismanaged that generous policies like this have been abused for years. This is a necessary move to get things back on track. But instead people are treating this like they’re just doing this to be jerks.
