We just learned this morning that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is retiring from his post within the next 12 months. Was Ballmer’s rein as CEO a triumphant career journey to be celebrated, or a dismal performance that deserves to be panned?
ITBusiness.ca Editor Brian Jackson takes the side the Steve Ballmer was a success – he grew Microsoft’s revenue and built new successful business divisions, plus he was an electric personality on stage. But CDN’s Jeff Jedras thinks that’s baloney – Ballmer was too slow to adapt to a shifting technology market and just hasn’t delivered value for shareholders. Witness the thrilling cross-cubicle battle in the video above.
What do you think? We’re continuing the debate on Twitter, so chime in and let us know what you think of Ballmer’s performance as CEO:
