<b>Subject:</b> Cross group cooperation two exciting examples:
Maui Media and Spam</p>
We talk a lot about the difficulty of cross-group cooperation because it is so
important to our success in providing integrated innovation.<p/>
Two efforts I have reviewed recently impressed me with the strong cooperation
across multiple groups<p/>
Maui Media is the fall launch of a number of Media Center, Portable Media
Center, Windows Media 10, MSN Music, and a chance to show our DRM
progress.<p/>
It involves MSN, MED, and Windows in complex ways. For example talking to media
companies about what technologies to use and whether to license to
us.<p/>
Customers will see we have thought through the scenarios end-end. Apple still
has simpler UI for many tasks and we still have to craft the message so our
innovation shows through so we still have work to do.<p/>
However, the willingness of the groups to work together and to trust each other
has been a real asset.</p>
Likewise the SPAM effort involves a number of groups. Office, MSN,
MSR,Windows</p>
There are many aspects to it legal, caller-id, IP address reputation, content
filtering and proof.</p>
We have to work with many other industry participants.</p>
We have already done leadership things on filtering which unfortunately isn't
enough.</p>
We have a roadmap for rolling out the other aspects including the coordination
of the various groups</p>
Like Maui Media a lot of the important work is still ahead of us including
getting credit for our innovation.</p>
However the willingness of the groups to work together and trust each other has
been a real asset.</p>
Personally I am not sure what the lessons learned here are but we should look
into both to make sure we reward and identify the key elements.</p>
We identified the problem set/scenario we are going after. It was a priority
effort of the various groups.</p>

The groups decided they needed to work with each other. I am sure the attitudes
of the key people has been critical.</p>

You are welcome. Please help. The
thought of doing another one right after
this 300+ page one is awful.
