Xbox Team to suffer limited change

While Microsoft has confirmed that it will eliminate 18,000 jobs within the company and we know that the largest impact to be felt by the old Nokia Devices and Services group, the Xbox Team will experience “limited change” during this layoff according to a number of sources.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO says that the cuts are necessary in order to “simplify the way that we work and drive accountability”. As part of the restructuring, Microsoft will be doing away with some management layers in order to flatten the organization and increase the span of control.

While Nadella says that the result from the layoffs will be a leaner and more agile Microsoft that is more focused, it remains to be seen if this actually will be the end result.
