For Gordon Eubanks, the former nuclear submarine officer who is chairman and chief executive of Symantec Corp., it's been a rapid reversal of fortune. Just a few months ago, Symantec was one of the computer software industry's hottest properties, known for an ambitious acquisition strategy (including the 1990 buyout of Santa Monica-based Peter Norton Computing) and a strong record of growth.

Borland International Chairman Philippe Kahn was reading a dense history of Central Asia a few years ago when it struck him that many of the nomadic tribes of the steppes were actually far more ethical and disciplined than the European "civilizations" they were confronting. They were austere and ambitious, eager for victory but not given to celebrating it. They were organized around small, collaborative groups that were far more flexible and fast-moving than the entrenched societies of the time.
