Microsoft announces 18,000 layoffs, but more people than ever will be working for Microsoft

new-microsoft-logo2Microsoft announces 18,000 layoffs. What does this mean? That less people will be working at Microsoft.

Still, I’m convinced more people than ever will continue working for Microsoft.

What Microoft is just doing here (and has been doing for some time now) is reorganising itself into a 21st century company by getting leaner and outsourcing more and more processes to outside partners. This includes marketing processes, but just as well Partner support and even specific product developments.

Microsoft becoming a leaner, smarter IT-company. That’s what gives me full confidence they are on the right track!
