Editor's Note

This year, there have been plenty of examples of how not to manage a company. Microsoft, on the other hand, has emerged with its reputation for good management very much intact, as the WSJ reports.

The technology sector’s grip on the top spots in the annual Management Top 250 ranking slipped this year.

Microsoft Corp. held its ground, ranking No. 1 in this measure of the best-run companies in the U.S. for the third straight year. But unlike last year, when tech companies took the first five spots in the ranking, this year’s top five include General Motors Co. at No. 4 and Whirlpool Corp. at No. 5.
