Microsoft’s annual employee company meeting is today. It is usually a very loud, exciting event with entertainment plus the latest from product VPs, the finance VP, the personel VP, the CEO and Bill Gates. But with as big a group of employees, we are at an outdoor venue meeting in the morning and carrying on through the day. It is expected to be around fifty degrees tomorrow morning. I’ll have my thermos of hot coffee and dress in layers.
With a company as large as Microsoft, it can be a challenging task to keep up with everything that is happening. Not only are there new products and services being shipped and planned, but there are internal tools and processes that if tapped into will help you provide better service to our customers and the product team. This is a day devoted to getting a peek at what some key people and teams are thinking about.
