Why Microsoft develops lousy products?

Microsoft is a successful company by any standard one may want to judge, but often users are not found satisfied by quality of Microsoft products.

Why the quality of Microsoft's products is not to users satisfaction compared to quality of product of other  companies ( say Apple)?

I found the answer in the following quote

Well, a lazy person can find an easy way to do the job but that easy way may not be the best way!

Easy way will come out in product quality sooner or later!

Compare this to Steve Jobs approach in Apple who prefers to have A team for the products.

“The Macintosh experience taught me that A players like to work only with other A players, which means you can’t indulge B players.” “It’s too easy as a team grows, to put up with a few B players, and they then attract a few more B players, and soon you will even have some C players.”

But Microsoft has been successful. Isn't it? How can a company be successful for so long if its product quality is not the best?

Answer is Business Model.

What is the relation between Product and Business Model in success of company?

A Business Fiction book - "Who is that lady?"

The book is about an idea that is converted into a billion dollar business, about a belief that an idea can be implemented and about formulating right strategy for converting an idea into a business. The plot harmoniously weaves around complex business fundamentals, required to set up, run and make a business successful, presented in lucid, easy to understand style. The novel is about implementation, about challenges that can be overcome, about success, about friendship, about passion, and about fun above all! All in all a hilarious and inspiring story on entrepreneurship and idea possibilities!

The book has got good and encouraging reviews from readers so far.

Dr. T. R. Madanmohan ( Ex Associate Professor IIM Bangalore ) says, “Reading ‘Who is that lady?’ brought vividly the moments of celebration and anguish of "identification of business opportunity", validation and construction of business model and implementation. A wonderful, written as a novel, that should be read by all current and future business leaders. Wish the book was available around 2005 for my class of Managing Technology led business at IIM Bangalore. I am sure the class would have devoured and gained much more from the book.” 

Sathish Sheshadri ( Management Consultant at IBM) says, “India is renowned for using stories to convey great life lessons. Who is that Lady could well become such a legendary story on the topic of innovation and entrepreneurship. Everyone from students to CEOs will find a lot to reflect on, from the pearls of wisdom that the authors have shared through the protagonist, Pratik.”

Major Pooja Gupta says, “The book makes you think... if there is anything in this world which is impossible.”

Subir Dhar (Principal Consultant at Infosys) says, “This book will inspire India’s restless youth to take up entrepreneurship.”

Neerav Nimesh (Entrepreneur) says, “An entertaining book, which is not only a good novel but also a very good book on management. The author has been able to explain the fundamentals of every aspect of business whether marketing, planning, strategy, organizational structure, H.R., lines of communication, team work, goal setting etc and has done so without appearing to dispense "gyan".
