Allard – Decide. Change. Reinvent.

Robbie Back and James “J”Allard are leaving Microsoft later this year, with Robbie Bach retiring and J Allard serving as a special consultant to Ballmer on some initiatives starting this fall. Allard’s parting email to the “Tribe” is an interesting and motivational piece. I too hope to make change happen, both within and outside the company, but it’s going to take many long years of work before I have the knowledge or experience.
