In an interview with Bloomberg, Carol Bartz graded her first year as Yahoo!'s CEO. She gave herself a B minus.
That's probably a fair grade.
Yahoo! stock has recovered a bit from 2008, when Jerry Yang failed to take advantage of Microsoft's generous offers. But there is still recovery to be made.
2010 presents Bartz with plenty of challenges, including beginning to execute the Microsoft deal - and continuing to building on Yahoo!'s strengths as a media company. With Bartz's dedication and high standards, she's likely to turn that B minus to an A plus in no time.
