The list of hopeful individuals, who are being considered for the coveted post of CEO of Microsoft, consists of some top guns. Ford CEO, Alan Mulally, Nokia CEO, Stephen Elop, Microsoft Executive, Paul Maritz and another person from Microsoft, Tony Bates have made it to the list. Even the CEO of eBay was approached but he shied away from the offer. There is desperation at Microsoft to quickly find a substitute for Ballmer. 

The Windows department has been literally put on ice till Ballmer leaves. Reorganization is the name of the game. Several engineers have been assigned radically different jobs from their previous ones. The shuffling at Microsoft is a sign of change. 

Stephen Elop too happens to be one of the individuals who made it to the top of the list. However, he is also slated for another role as head of the Expanded Devices Team. Microsoft’s Surface and Xbox are two of the products that need attention right now. 

Every step has been taken to make the transition from one CEO to another as smooth as possible. Yet there are bumps and pitfalls along the way. There is bound to be some degree of chaos generated in the great change that is about to take place at Microsoft.
