Forbes website recently posted a 3-pages article about 5 CEOs who should have already been fired. It means those 5 CEO are not qualified for a CEO.
The interesting thing is who is the worst CEO in this world ? Actually Forbes just means who is the worst CEO of a large publicly traded American company, not all over the world, but for people, and all other medias, nobody cared about the range was limited a traded, large, and American company, they just simply think the worst CEO is worst CEO in this world.
Poor Steve Ballmer, he was chosen to be the worst CEO in American area, but, people now think he is just the worst CEO in all over the world.
#1 – Steve Ballmer, Microsoft. Without a doubt, Mr. Ballmer is the worst CEO of a large publicly traded American company today. Not only has he singlehandedly steered Microsoft out of some of the fastest growing and most lucrative tech markets (mobile music, handsets and tablets) but in the process he has sacrificed the growth and profits of not only his company but “ecosystem” companies such as Dell, Hewlett Packard and even Nokia. The reach of his bad leadership has extended far beyond Microsoft when it comes to destroying shareholder value – and jobs.

For me, I don’t know the stock well, but I know Microsoft’s stock value has dropped too much since Steve Ballmer took the CEO place. Microsoft own the best software development team, but they lost too much in the mobile field, they missed too many chances. and, just say the web browser, I can not believe the IE browser can not win Chrome, actually the best web browser is definitely Google Chrome now, no more IE.
Fortunately, Microsoft still have enough strong and great products such as Windows 7, .NET, and the coming new Windows 8. Microsoft is still the giant IT company, they only have to consider a better CEO maybe.
