Microsoft Corporation ( MSFT) is in a period of mass transition. The change is not in opposition to current CEO Steve Ballmer, and it is not the work of a new management team. The whole organization is shifting its focus as the tech world changes. A new CEO will not majorly alter the company’s direction. A new report supports this thesis and suggests that the company may not be looking to install a full CEO at all. According to the rumor, which All Things D picked up from sources inside Microsoft Corporation ( MSFT), Ford CEO Alan Mulally will function as a caretaker until someone from the next generation is ready to take control of the company.
