I’ve been in situations where using the break-even formula (fixed costs/number of attendees + variable costs) would price us out of the market.

Mayer’s leadership strengths stand in sharp contrast to those of Ballmer, who announced his retirement last week and almost immediately saw his company’s stock price surge. And the company has beefed up its technology with a series of careful acquisitions—including Tumblr. The problem is that this came at the cost of the market it was actually trying to reach—consumers. The company’s stock price under his leadership stagnated as a result.
