Microsoft In business school the first thing they teach you about CEOs is: it is the CEO’s job to increase the shareholder value of the company. Since taking the position Ballmer has decreased shareholder value, as reflected by stock price, by -56.63%. That. Is. Not. Good . . . Microsoft should be searching for a new CEO right now.

No, it's not. Share value is an extremely narrow, short term, and often misleading criteria on which to value a CEO.

Actually it is the only criteria to value a CEO of a publicly traded corporation.

Welcome to the wonderful world of corporate stock market capitalism.
