Microsoft "In a large staff memo, Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer details how the company is aiming for a 'One Microsoft', by altering its organization around the 'devices and services' vision. Terry Myerson will lead a new operating systems engineering group that will span across console, mobile device, and PC. Myerson used to lead the Windows Phone group at Microsoft. Julie Larson-Green takes over a new devices and studios engineering group."

Going the wrong direction?

I think microsoft might be missing some of the lessons currently being learned in business. Instead of having a restructuring where you consolidate power, you should look to create an environment of experimentation and constructive failure. The market moves way too fast for a monolithic management structure to adapt (ie RIM/Blackberry, HP, IBM, Xerox, etc).

Now they still can do this, even with consolidated power, but it could be a rough ride.
