The Next Big "Thing" is Coming....
You’re officially reading a post from Microsoft’s new CEO! (Okay, not the real one…)
At the beginning of the semester, I was assigned the title of “Chief Executive Officer” for Microsoft in my “CEO Simulator” course led by Sam Polakoff of TBB Global Logistics. Throughout the semester, I’ve been keeping tabs on Microsoft’s stock and current events that have been happening throughout the organization and its environment. I must say that it has been incredible so far!
For our midterm project, each “CEO” was required to give a mock Board of Directors meeting that outlined our vision, as the CEO, for our company.
For my Board of Directors meeting last Monday, I presented to 6 business professionals in the Baltimore area on a strategy for Microsoft to get involved in the Internet of Things (IoT), a revolutionary idea of the next stage of the Internet.
This concept has completely intrigued me and I’m sure it will do the same for others, too. So, I wanted to write a little about it.
