“We are aligning our engineering efforts and capabilities to deliver on our strategy and, in particular, our three core ambitions, ..This change will enable us to deliver better products and services that our customers love at a more rapid pace.” says Satya Nadella – CEO Microsoft kicking Stephen Elope out of Microsoft .

Stephen Elope

 

If you don’t know what Stephen Elope did , he got Nokia for Microsoft for mere peanuts costing $ 7.2 Billion and had been heading the devices division without showing much for it .

His and a couple of other execeutive ousting from Microsoft after a brief transition period is part of Satya Nadella’s reshuffle of Microsoft , cleaning up the house and make Microsoft a driving force in the market.

Even Jo Harlow, who joined Microsoft from Nokia ( I met her in 2010 MWC Barcelona ) is also ‘leaving’ the company while the phone division is being shuffled into the hardware division.
