Larry Page, Google's recently reappointed CEO, has identified and set his sights on what he sees as the company's greatest threat: Google. "There are basically no companies that have good slow decisions," Page said in a public appearance at Google's Zeitgeist conference this week, as reported by The New York Times' Bits blog. "There are only companies that have good fast decisions. As companies get bigger, they slow down decision making, and that's a big problem."

As Bits notes, slow decisions are a problem that Page has tried to address since he took over as chief executive from Eric Schmidt in April. "He's in there doing that, forcing the choice and forcing the resolution," Schmidt, now Google's chairman, said at the conference, according to Bits.
