The real boss

November 21, 2012

I agree with Alex Wilhelm (TNW), this particular paragraph in David Cardinal’s post at Extreme Tech which also caught my attention on what’s happening with Steven Sinofsky’s exit:

“Ballmer had been frustrated by Sinofsky before. Microsoft partners apparently had a reference design for tablet hardware ready in time for Windows 7. Sources tell us that Sinofsky refused to add support for it in Windows 7.”

That tells Sinfosky told Ballmer what to do, not the other way around, like a real company should work: the CEO should be the one telling the others what to do. No wonder Sinofsky was ousted.
