Perhaps in a way to try and get confidence in his new company employees, Iger kills off the "Strategic Planning Organization". This group was basically around to police all the other areas of Disney, including feature animation. ...continued...
More than a few thought that the SPO was at least partially responsible for some the problems feature animation was having getting any creative juices flowing. Many times, the SPO would step in and kill an idea because they (executives, management, non creative types) didn't care for it or think it was proper. Anyone working in the animation departments at Disney should see this as good news. One less group of executives to go through.
It is also important to note that Iger is being aggressive in making changes. Just a little bit of hope that a rainbow will start to appear in Disney's gloomy rainstorm that has been raging overhead for years now.
Although we shouldn't get too excited. It is a breath of fresh air and is a promising move.
