Microsoft CEO Search Reach Interview Stage

Ever since Microsoft’s former CEO, Steve Ballmer declared that he will be leaving the company, a CEO hunt has ensued. And it has just acquired a greater sense of urgency. The interviews have begun and the list of candidates includes several renowned names many of whom are outsiders. 

Some of these eligible big shots have been approached as recently as a week ago. They include Ford’s Alan Mulally, Oracle’s Mark Hurd and Nokia’s Stephen Elop. The rest of the outsider candidates can be counted on the fingertips of one hand. And there are even two who happen to be in-house employees of Microsoft. Most of the names have been carefully kept under wraps. Even the interviewing process has not been divulged much. At present much remains rumor and hearsay. 

The essential problem that Microsoft faces is that there is no single individual that fits the mold of the desired CEO that will take the giant firm forward in the future. And with Bill Gates being head honcho, there are issues about certain candidates especially Alan Mulally. 

Under Steve Ballmer who had been CEO for the past decade and a half, the company had seen a decline. It had lost out to smart phone organizations and other innovative production units. The decision ultimately lies in the hands of Microsoft. It will have to make a choice between an innovative leader and a person with the skills to handle such a sprawling organization. And that is not as easy as it looks.
