‘With every new technology, there are challenges. How do we help people whose jobs are replaced by AI agents and robots? Will users trust their AI agent with all their information? If an agent could advise you on your work style, would you want it to? That is what makes books like Hit Refresh so valuable. Satya has charted a course for making the most of the opportunities created by technology while also facing up to the hard questions. And he offers his own fascinating personal story, more literary quotations than you might expect, and even a few lessons from his beloved game of cricket’ Bill Gates--Questo testo si riferisce a un'edizione alternativa kindle_edition.

Il discorso, però, viene esaurito abbastanza in fretta e infatti mi sono stupito della lunghezza del libro. La seconda parte è più autoreferenziale, incentrata sull'impegno di Microsoft in merito a intelligenza artificiale, computer quantici e realtà mista. Molti discorsi rispetto a ciò che le multinazionali, la tecnologia e anche i governi dovrebbero fare affinché l'economia venga galvanizzata dalla diffusione della tecnologia per tutti. Discorsi interessanti, ma spesso un po' banali e, comunque, non ciò per cui questo libro risultava accattivante, ossia la visione di Nadella per Microsoft.
TL; DR: la prima metà rispetta in pieno le aspettative con retroscena interessanti sulla sua guida al timone di Microsoft. Seconda metà decisamente meno interessante, troppo generica. Personalmente ho saltato capitoli interi per vedere se c'era altro. Sfortunatamente no.
Mi e' piacuto perche' e' un libro scritto direttamente dal CEO della Microsoft e non da altri, si legge quindi la sua storia, le sue difficolta e sfide che una azienda cosi' grande come la MS deve affrontare.
Si percepisce la difficolta' di riuscire a far trovare (o ritrovare) il vero obiettivo alla MS e alle persone che ci lavorano. Impresa davvero ardua per un ente cosi' grande e spesso 'recidivo' nelle piccole politiche di ogni reparto.
Un libro che mi ha lasciato piu' dubbi che certezze. Ma chi ha detto che i dubbi non sono positivi?
history of Microsoft and the personal evolution of Mr Nadella. In fact, this book is more a manifesto on how MS is crafting - or contributing
to - the future of the world by leveraging its
size, coverage, and obviously technology.
More than a business book this is a treaty
on what policies and what actions should be implemented in any given Country as well as in our Corporations in order to ensure a better
world for everyone.
At the same time I have the impression that this book was written as a PR tool in order to (re)position MS vs the more recent Googles
of the world who seem more
creative, fast, agile and future oriented.
The book therefore in not an easy read, it requires
an open mind and a high level of attention. It is supported with great detail and indeed
it is an extremely valuable peace of literature
on our likely future.
Maybe the same concepts could have been
expressed in fewer pages and with a format easier
to grasp - some tables, some recaps.
Nadella comes across as a Person first and as a business leader second. He is never bragging
about his spectacular career, talks about his
family as well as his personal challeges
with great honesty and transparency.
What a fantastic testimonial for MS!

Now let’s move to the probable reasons as to why you should read it.
1. To know Satya Nadella’s journey from India to Microsoft
Satya Nadella’s journey is encouraging as well as powerful. His story shows us that how hard work and talent can lead you to the places you only dream about. Satya belongs to a middle-class Indian family. He talks about his life and friends in India and how his parents shaped his future to be a better human being. He was and is a big cricket enthusiast and he explained how the game of Cricket actually helped him to learn the qualities like leadership and empathy. The part where Satya told about his initial move to the US was very moving. His wife was having trouble in getting the visa and he was ready to give up his green card in case she did not get it. But luckily she got it. I was surprised to know that their first child is disabled. I can understand the difficulties that they would have faced. There were so many things to learn from Satya’s examples. He encourages you to take challenges and to listen to your heart sometime. He tells the importance of family and how it helps make your future.
2. If interested in knowing more about Microsoft and how actually Microsoft did “hit refresh”
It was fun to know the internal working of Microsoft. When Satya became the CEO, and even the years before that, Microsoft was going downwards. He took many decisions which not only changed the face of Microsoft but allowed them to transform the Microsoft completely. The decisions were not at all easy, but it was important to take those. Satya Realised that except Office, none of their products were selling as they had speculated because of the competition going on in the market from the rivals like Amazon and Apple.
Satya did many changes in the company’s culture and took a complete 180 degrees turn (Hit Refresh) to not only encourage the employee’s satisfaction but also encouraged them to have more empathy. He encouraged them to learn more, to ask questions and to participate fully.
3. If you want to know what actually goes behind successful companies and their struggles
This is not a hidden fact that so much politics go inside big companies like Microsoft. It was amazing to know the work culture of Microsoft, its various work programmes, its team divisions and inside details. If you are someone who likes to join Microsoft someday or is simply fascinated by it, you would find it particularly interesting. It doesn’t matter how big is an organization. There is always a room for more improvement and growth. Microsoft was too lenient a few years ago and employees were unsatisfied. Satya tried to change this and thus helped Microsoft to come out of the difficult phase.
4. If you are a tech person or love technology
Oh yes! If you simply love technology you should read this whether you are in a technical field or not. Satya has talked about many technologies which I was amazed to hear for the first time. There was seriously so much to learn about the new products that Microsoft is making or the current projects they are working on. I had heard many of the names before, but I had never gone into the details of things like quantum computing and artificial intelligence. But Satya’s words will take you on that amazing journey. As per him, currently there are three big technology trends: artificial intelligence, mixed reality and quantum computing and they have to work towards making a hold on those.
5. If you want to learn the basic importance of leadership, empathy, equation of trust etc.
This was my favourite part of the book. It was more like a moral teaching. Satya told that in today’s world we should try to make friends even with our enemies. He describes how partnerships with companies like Samsung, Adobe and Apple have provided benefits to Microsoft and have given future alliances to strengthen themselves with a clear focus. With making the enemies friends (fre-enemies) often we can get profits in some fields, if not at all. He talked about the importance of leadership and how that leadership quality helped him to overcome the failure that Microsoft was going towards.
There is a lot to learn from this book. Not only you can learn many things about Satya himself, but also about the Microsoft’s journey and the changes, it incorporated in order to survive. This book can get a little technical in between. But if you are a technology enthusiast you should definitely read this. You should read this to understand how technology is going to change and is going to affect YOU and what role you can play into this.
Then along came the smartphone revolution and Microsoft realised the old ways couldn’t continue – they needed new blood and they had it, in the form a Microsoft’s own Satya Nadella.
In this book, Satya talks about his humble beginnings in India, growing up with a love of cricket, his journey to America, the very personal story of his family and how it affected his world view.
The book is a book of 2 halves.
The first half deals with what was and how to overcome it – the finding of Microsoft’s soul once again. Satya knew he had to change the culture of Microsoft, one of a “know-it-all” company to one of a “learn-it-all”. There are many anecdotes in this book but one which stood out the most was that Microsoft had employees who wanted to do things and try new things but were told not to because their focus was on Windows and the Server business. Satya’s pledge to “reinvent productivity to empower every person and every organization on the planet to do more and achieve more” started within Microsoft – the book talks about this transformation of culture.
The second half of the book looks more at the next big things – Artificial Intelligence, Mixed Reality and Quantum Computer, all which Microsoft are investing heavily in. It also looks at Privacy in a Digital age, what the means for users, governments and tech companies and Ethical framework for AI, all important topics to discuss in this ever-increasing Digital world.
There are great lessons for leadership within this book, my personal favourite is what Satya describes as “not his best line of poetry” but it rings true for leaders in business.
All in all, the book offers insight into 1 of the biggest changes in corporate culture in modern history, how it was done and insight from a leader in 1 of the largest technology companies in the world on what may lie ahead in our near future. For fans of technology or people looking to learn more leadership skills, this book is worth picking up.
Nadella is clearly an exceptional visionary with much we can learn about the importance of empathy, a sense of purpose, and a focus on his employees and customers. Good luck and keep doing it
If you work in business or IT this is a must read
