ABSTRACT
The article reports on the focus of Oracle founder Larry Ellison on trusted staff that faithfully takes his lead over succession. Larry Ellison owns a 23 percent stake worth $18 billion, and he rarely sells. When Ellison made a move on PeopleSoft, it was run by one of his myriad protégés-turned-castoffs, Craig Conway. Oracle spent 18 months in pursuit of PeopleSoft, prevailing over the objection of the U.S. government and pressing the PeopleSoft board into firing Conway.
