Take away: Strong leaders can motivate
Jim Keller, Murthy and Raja Koduri are very prominent names in the chip industry but it is very important to underline that Intel has many thousands of employees and most of them being quite good in what they are doing. It won’t be Keller that will fix Intel’s CPU and its overall SoC design and Raja who is slated to fix the whole architecture, software stack and GPU, or Murthy that will fix the fabs and IoT / servers.
