Kodak is on its last legs. Anytime it is able to sell off a business unit for an even remotely good deal, it will. Of course these are the business units that are the more successful ones in the company because they are the only ones that are worth anything.

In 1982 Kodak employed 60,000 people in the Rochester area. Today that number is 7,000. Kodak really isn’t a big company anymore. If it still exists in 5 years I will be surprised.

Kodak had big plans to be the leader in digital imaging, a strategy developing products to be ready when the culture switched. They missed it by five years.

I hadn’t realized how much they have downsized. In any case the weak close to death get taken over by bad spirits unless surrounded by a caring family and community. That applies to people and enterprises both.
