Microsoft is going through a dramatic transition right now with a massive reorganization taking place at the company. With a new alignment being formed within its structure, Microsoft will hopefully be able to break down the internal walls to expand cross-platform functionality that has been highlighted and hinted at over the past few months.
Steve Ballmer’s vision for the company has been to transform Microsoft into a ‘one team’ approach for all of the company’s products. While the concept sounds simple, with so many products and teams under his control, having everyone focused on the same goal, regardless of the target market, is not always an easy task.
The video posted above sees Steve Ballmer talking about his plans for the company and the new structure of the organization. He says he wants to "create a family of devices and services for individuals and businesses that empower people around the globe at home, at work and on the go, for the activities they value the most."
Ballmer also wants Microsoft employees to be hungry and motivated as that is the only way to drive Microsoft forward. Not being shy about his competitors, he notes that Microsoft is in the most competitive industry on the planet and he is well aware that the company has to remain vigilant in its pursuit of empowering the consumer.
