Alan Mulally as caretaker CEO for Microsoft seems to be the consensus

More speculation surfaced this morning, alongside some predictions concerning the future CEO of Microsoft, after hearing, at the beginning of the month, about candidates that might be considered on a certain short-list. AllThingsD reports that Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford, has a good chance of stepping in Steve Ballmer’s shoes; however, he’d become a “caretaker” CEO that will need to get Microsoft back on the right track, and also train his successor, who will take over after Mulally’s stepping down.

As for the successor, these are the names, according to this report, but we’ve already heard them earlier: executive vice president of Cloud and Enterprise group  Satya Nadella, Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner, executive vice president for Business Development, Strategy and Evangelism Tony Bates, and Nokia’s ex-CEO Stephen Elop. According to inside sources, these people are fit for the job, “but not quite ready for prime time”.
