This paper takes the issues discussed in Dr. Theodore Levitt's article, 'Marketing Myopia' and applies his theory to the Microsoft Corporation. This paper defines how the Microsoft culture had become so myopically focused on their own technologies and the processes used to create them. The paper also looks at the reversal that happened after their dominance of the PC Desktop came under serious risk. The paper goes on to say that Microsoft's epiphany regarding their myopic view of themselves is perfectly defined in Dr. Levitt's classic article.
