Fable: A Sorry Succession
There was once a great electronics company. It became the world No.1 in manufacturing vacuum tubes and followed that trick by becoming a top ten transistor manufacturer.
It followed that up by becoming a top ten IC manufacturer and CMOS pioneer.
However the genius founder was succeeded by a less than genius son and the company fell on hard times in the 1980s and was sold.
Moral: Successions are tricky
