What happens when you have two profitable departments in a similar sphere. Apparently, shipwreck the one that has more features and cost less to develop and follow the Highest Paid Person's Opinion (HiPPO). Search for Andrew McAfee - head of MIT's School of Business for more on that. Forbes also did a write up on this problem. Management seemed firm in two convictions. One: that 20 overseas developers with little experience (and have issues failing QA 5 times) could produce as good of a product as 4 senior people with the necessary financial and software experience. Second: that GAP analysis doesn't really show the true picture of differences in product features - which is an unscientific approach (see HiPPO principle).
Advice to Management
Getting rid of years of experience in development (killing the goose that lays the golden egg) and keeping around senior executives who give products away for free, kill profit streams, and make technology decisions based on golfing buddies rather than listening to those who actually build the products is the opposite of moving towards success. Take a lesson from Rome that even the biggest can fall.
