近几年微软的变化有目共睹:不仅 Windows 有了极大的变化,它还发布了一系列令人喜爱的硬件产品,而且云业务页蒸蒸日上。而这一切,都要归功于 CEO - Satya Nadella 的领导。要想了解 Satya 的想法,就不得不读他于2017年出版的自传 -- Hit Refresh。他在这本书中阐述了自己关于微软,领导力,变化,公司文化和技术的思考:

  1. CEO 的 C 其实是文化的首字母,ta 是公司文化最坚定的维护者;
  2. 改变公司文化非常困难,因为最大的阻力来自改变带来的未知;
  3. 领导力意味着作出选择,并让整个团队接受并践行这个选择;
  4. 是否拥抱技术变化将决定领袖的差异;
  5. 经济增长 = 教育创新 * 技术应用的密度

The changes at Microsoft in recent years are clear: not only has Windows changed dramatically, but it has also released a series of favorite hardware products, and its cloud business page is booming. And this is all thanks to the leadership of the CEO - Satya Nadella. To understand Satya's thoughts, one has to read his autobiography - Hit Refresh - published in 2017. He sets out his thoughts on Microsoft, leadership, change, company culture and technology:

  1. the C in CEO is actually the initials for culture and is the ultimate defender of the company's culture.
  2. changing the company culture is very difficult because the greatest resistance comes from the unknown that comes with change.
  3. leadership means making a choice and getting the entire team to embrace and practice that choice.
  4. that whether or not one embraces technological change will determine the difference in leadership.
  5. economic growth = educational / innovation * density of technology adoption
