Would Steven Sinofsky be able to take the reigns from Steve Ballmer to become the head of Microsoft? He’s a great project manager and a very good technical person, but I’m not sure if he would have the CEO capability. Great guy, very smart, but does he have the business background that could make or break Microsoft? I’m not so sure.
Critics say he lacks the necessary charisma for the top job, and question whether he has the technical brilliance of Gates or the incisive analytical ability and forceful personality of Ballmer.
