The Anatomy of an Iconic CEO Firing

Patrick Moorhead, TechPinions:

Unless you were on vacation in Alaska last week, you know that Microsoft announced that CEO Steve Ballmer would retire in 12 months and that a special board committee had been formed to find his replacement.  The departure was positioned as voluntary, but there has been a lot of pontification and doubt about that claim.  I personally doubt CEO Steve Ballmer left voluntary and believe he had some pushing from the board.
