Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Restores Confidence Of Senior Managers Affright By CEO Search

Written by on August 27, 2013

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is informing employees that re-organization plan by leaving Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer will move forward, looking to restore the confidence of senior managers who are fretful that the search for a successor will gyrate efforts into dismay.

Three people having knowledge of the matter told that, on Aug. 23, some members of senior leadership team of Microsoft e-mailed their staff saying that they remain committed to Ballmer’s vision and the reorganization. Since the July restructuring plan, some of Microsoft executives have received a sharp rise in outside job offers and others may be allured towards those jobs after stock grants and bonuses are awarded in late August, said the people, who asked not to be recognized because information was not public. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) shares were off -1.73% to $34.15 in last activity.

The board of Microsoft needs managers to keep its focus on the reorganization plan, the largest shift in more than a decade. Ballmer is focusing on hardware and Internet-based services, moving away from software for the descending personal-computer industry and placing Microsoft on better grounds to compete with Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), and Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) in mobile devices and online advertising. Ivan Feinseth, chief investment officer of Tigress Financial Partners LLC in New York said that they need to alter everything, they need to get better in social, mobile, cloud and analytics , as they have very little to offer in those areas. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) shares fell -0.44% to $866.39 in last session. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares in premarket fell -0.68% to $499.55 and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) shares were off -0.92% in premarket to $40.96.

In the process of moving into new divisions and roles, Microsoft’s executives and workers don’t know whether they would be required to shift again under new management. Some executives which are not satisfied with their new roles may leave after the stock grants and bonuses at the end of August. Ballmer’s reorganization was undertaken with the knowledge that a new CEO might end up at the company’s rudder. The reorganization has put all of Microsoft’s hardware into one unit and moved the Windows and Windows Phone operating systems under the same executive. It was not making sense to put the changes on hold for a year waiting for a new CEO.
