In an email to the staff, the CEO of Microsoft outlined a sparkling future for the company but also tempered that message with some forthright words.
Satya Nadella wrote the memo including his perspective on what’s to come for Microsoft along with some details for fiscal plans in 2016.
The CEO spoke of wanting the company to be an aggressive leader in productivity across the board, and mentioned that the road would not be a smooth one.
He went on to say: “We will need to innovate in new areas, execute against our plans, make some tough choices in areas where things are not working, and solve hard problems in ways that drive customer value.”
The 1,500 word letter also made it a point to hammer home the fact that diversity and its deepening inclusion in the corporate culture of the company will be the main goal for Microsoft moving forward.
Nadella underscored that by writing the following: “We don’t just value differences, we seek them out, we invite them in. And as a result, our ideas are better, our products are better, and our customers are better served.”
The mission statement doesn’t provide much in the way of specific technical goals outside of being stoked for the release of Windows 10.
