Adam Yammer

Adam Pisoni, co-founder of Yammer and more recently CVP at Microsoft is now leaving Microsoft. He is not leaving to Google or any other Microsoft’s competitors.

He has started a new project called responsive.org. Responsive.org aims to develop a shared language and community that promotes and enables a fundamental shift in our way of working and organizing. They aspire to act as the central hub for Responsive thinkers and practitioners. Responsive.org is a community committed to creating and growing Responsive Organizations.

Pisoni is joined by co-founder Aaron Dignan, the CEO of management consultancy Undercurrent, and Zappos and Microsoft have both signed on as participants.

Speaking of Microsoft, Pisoni says that CEO Satya Nadella really does get the need for change, but he can’t do it by himself.

“I’m a huge Satya fan, he really gets it. But the lesson to be learned is even when teh CEO gets it, there’s a lot more work to be done to transform the organization. They’re doing a lot of the right things. Some will work out, some won’t. The underlying issue is how quickly they can become more adaptive.
