Microsoft CEO encourages employees to ‘reinvent productivity’

In a lengthy memo sent out to the Microsoft employees, CEO Satya Nadella gave out a clear message that he wants the company's staff to 'reinvent productivity.' Nadella also said in the memo that he is looking at evolving Microsoft's culture; with 'obsession' about the company's customers to be prioritized.

According to Nadella, it is essential to reinvent productivity if every individual and every organization in the world has to be empowered. Nadella said that reinvented productivity will facilitate the creation of an interconnected digital substrate.

Nadella drew special focus, in his memo, to the fact that Microsoft already boasts a rich heritage in terms of production of productivity software. However, he also emphasized that the industry in which Microsoft operates does not hold respect to tradition; rather it respects only one thing --- innovation.

Reiterating the need for Microsoft to change its aim from being a "devices and services company" to "a mobile-first and cloud-first" organization, Nadella said: "More recently, we have described ourselves as a 'devices and services' company. While the devices and services description was helpful in starting our transformation, we now need to hone in on our unique strategy."

The memo by Nadella comes five months after he took over the reins of Microsoft in February this year. With the memo more like an extension to Microsoft's mission statement, Nadella promised that specific details about the company's performance in the most recent quarter will be shared on the July 22-scheduled earnings announcement.
