Watch Satya Nadella’s First Interview As CEO Of Microsoft

7

Satya Nadella was named as the CEO of Microsoft today. As he takes over this prestigious and challenging job, he needs to satisfy lots of expectation from investors, consumers, enterprise, developers and more. He gave a short interview to Steve Clayton at Microsoft about his new job, challenges ahead for Microsoft and how Microsoft is uniquely positioned to take on the competition.

From Satya’s mail,

What do we do next?

To paraphrase a quote from Oscar Wilde — we need to believe in the impossible and remove the improbable.

This starts with clarity of purpose and sense of mission that will lead us to imagine the impossible and deliver it. We need to prioritize innovation that is centered on our core value of empowering users and organizations to “do more.” We have picked a set of high-value activities as part of our One Microsoft strategy. And with every service and device launch going forward we need to bring more innovation to bear around these scenarios.

Next, every one of us needs to do our best work, lead and help drive cultural change. We sometimes underestimate what we each can do to make things happen and overestimate what others need to do to move us forward. We must change this.

Finally, I truly believe that each of us must find meaning in our work. The best work happens when you know that it’s not just work, but something that will improve other people’s lives. This is the opportunity that drives each of us at this company.

Many companies aspire to change the world. But very few have all the elements required: talent, resources, and perseverance. Microsoft has proven that it has all three in abundance. And as the new CEO, I can’t ask for a better foundation.

Let’s build on this foundation together.
