LMFAO clearly you guys cannot read so this maybe point less, but 3 CEO's overseeing different areas, One For mobile devices, one for production and one for electronics. A company as big as Samsung is too much for one person to keep track of in a life time.

As of 2011 the Samsung Group comprised 59 unlisted companies and 19 listed companies.

You keep track of all that and just to put it straight Thats CO-CEO's as in below the current one in the hierarchy.

When it comes to profit no other combined brand comes even close. Even apple is so far behind you can't see it. However apple does make the most profit in the IT industry as a single company.

a single mobile phone with dual cores performs better than a single core phone...so does in this case also, this will greatly reduce work load plus will help in wealth maximisation

Woh ! that's the greatest Samsung innovative Idea in history.
A single company with multi CEOs eg:CEO1, CEO2, CEO3, CEO4........... etc.etc.
It should be patented for future company business strategy.

I was surprised there are 3 CEOs in a single company like Samsung. So who is the boss?

Pretty sure there will be a huge politic war and power struggling within the business units.

Is this the end of Samsung's innovation?

3 CEO-s!!! Samsung is, obviously, getting real, real big. When a company gets real big, it usually becomes unsensitive toward their clients. The admission by Samsung that they can not mass produce, even their flagship phones, with better materials and newer design, confirms Samsung's inability to balance the quantity and the quality of their products.

3 CEO-s might be the solution in a case like this. Actually, innovations, not only technological, but also organizational are crucial for large corporations like Samsung. Actually, Samsung might be on the right track to keep their high ranking.

You do realise that the Mobile Division has 400 million dollars in their marketing budget ?

Samsung needs 3 CEOS because they are weak. HTC is best mobile.

Business model is not entirely related to understanding the whole concept business. It is method in which a process is adopted.

Why everything on Samsung it's about quantity, never about quality...
