The Larry Page era has officially begun — with a management shake-up. Just days after returning as Google Inc.'s chief executive, Page swiftly set the tone for how he would run the Internet search giant with a major reorganization of his management team. Page is trying to restore the sense of urgency and innovation that drove Google's prior successes, analysts said. The reorganization also puts him firmly in charge of the world's largest Internet company in much the same way Steve Jobs runs Apple Inc.
