BLOG: Why can't Microsoft find a CEO?

Andy Patrizio | Jan. 9, 2014
The Journal suggests it's because Ballmer and Gates cast too long a shadow.

So the ball is now in the court of Gates and Ballmer. They will have to give their candidate of choice the assurance of non-interference and, if necessary, resign from the board. Ballmer said he was the problem in his decision to leave. He must now extract himself fully.

It comes back to my Papal analogy earlier. Gates and Ballmer must do what Benedict XVI did - completely step away and let his successor do his job.
