Ever since Satya Nadella took on the roll in MS all its been is cut,cut cut ,not only devices or products but people,good people too and today once again new breaks of his latest shelling of staff..
Most of us know that Stephen Elop is now one of them,though some suggested his tenure at MS would be short-lived ,now the day has come but he remained there much longer than some anticipated,so where will he go now ??? This remains to be seen and shall be interesting over the coming weeks..Satya emailed his staff and this is what he had to say regarding Elop.
When Stephen Elop returned to Microsoft, he oriented MDG to create the best Microsoft experience through its devices, inclusive of hardware, software and services. He has been a strong advocate of the need to drive focus and accountability around the delivery of these experiences and has helped drive tighter alignment toward the ambition of more personal computing. With the structural change described above, Stephen and I have agreed that now is the right time for him to retire from Microsoft. I regret the loss of leadership that this represents, and look forward to seeing where his next destination will be.
