In March, Microsoft announced a major shakeup of its leadership teams with a reorganization focused on steering the company toward the future of AI and machine learning, the cloud, and ambient computing. Now, the company looks to be making some more internal moves related to the reorganization, but on a smaller scale.
Woo! THERE'S the big end-of-fiscal-year reorg I knew was coming after the big Terry announcement a few months ago. These titanic reorgs always happen in phases. I expect a final round 3 in mid-late summer.— Carmen Crincoli (@CarmenCrincoli) May 30, 2018
According to ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, the latest moves focus on a few areas. First, Corporate Vice President Kudo Tsunoda is leaving his current position as head of the NeXT group, a role that he assumed in March. According to Foley, Tsunoda's team, whose focus was on creating mixed reality and 3D experiences, is being disbanded. Meanwhile, Tsunoda is still with Microsoft but is currently looking for a new role.
Additionally, the Edge development team is moving back under the purview of the Experiences and Devices team. Some other teams under the Azure and Windows engineering group are said to be moving back to the Experiences and Devices team as well.
Lastly, Foley reports that the Design team and the Windows Insider program are moving to the Windows client experience team, under the watch of Corporate Vice President Joe Belfiore.
When the initial reorganization was announced in March, it led to some pretty major shuffles. One of the biggest was the departure of long-time Windows chief Terry Myerson. Another was the breaking up of the Windows Devices Group. It's still possible we could see more internal shuffling in the coming months.
