James will retain responsibility for Intel's software group, as well as remain chairman of McAfee, Intel's security software subsidiary. In addition, the structural changes expand James's responsibility for security beyond McAfee, including other product areas, Mulloy said. James will also be responsible for corporate planning and human resources, Mulloy said.
James has also been given responsibility for Intel's manufacturing group. According to Mulloy, this is an area that Intel's president traditionally oversaw in the years prior to Otellini.
Among the areas that will report directly to Kraznich are the Intel Architecture Group, which will be further restructured over the coming months, Mulloy said. Also reporting to Kraznich will be CFO Stacy Smith (who now has responsibility for Intel's venture capital arm, Intel Capital), Intel's legal department and government affairs, Mulloy said.

In the memo, Kraznich also outlined the creation of a new group, focused on devices, to be headed by Mike Bell, who formerly over saw Intel's mobile and communications group. Mulloy said the new group would focus on emerging product trends. The new group will help Intel "identify market opportunities for the company beyond the near term," Kraznich said.
Dadi Perlmutter, another 30 year Intel veteran who was most recently GM of the Intel Architecture Group, will work with Krzanich to develop a new structure for that group. After the IA Group has been restructured, Perlmutter will sit down with Krzanich and James to determine the next step in his career at Intel, Mulloy said.
"The idea for all of these changes is to shorten lines of communication and create an atmosphere where people can move more quickly," Mulloy said.
Mulloy also described the changes as "iterative." He expects Kraznich—who he called a very decisive person—to continue shaking things up as he deems necessary to streamline Intel and move the company more quickly.
I invented a CPU cooler - 3 times better than best - better than water. Intel have major CPU cooling problems - "Intel's microprocessors were generating so much heat that they were melting" (iht.com) - try to talk to them - they send my communications to my competitor & will not talk to me.

INVENTORS - DO NOT TRUST INTEL!!!
BTW, I have the evidence - my competitor gave it to me.
BBTW, I am prepared to apologise to Intel if;
• They can show that the actions were those of a single individual in the company, acting outside corporate policy, and:
• They gain redress on my behalf.

By your own words: What happens to a brilliant person who just happened to be born into a poorer family (particularly cash-poor - they may own land that will last forever, but cash flow is low), or in a different part of the country, or with a particular philosophical/religious orientation? They won't go to the "typical" top tier colleges. Does that make them less brilliant?
"Outside of x86 they have failed..." And how many x86 PCs is the world still buying every day? I agree it would be good to get some of their eggs out of that one basket . . . unless they believe in the advice to "watch that basket"!
If he has been at Intel 30 years, he graduated before degrees *existed* in most of the subjects of his employees' degrees. So what? The bigger question is, what has he been doing for the last 3 to 5 years?
Good one Dylan! That type of cynicism has no place here. Some of my best teachers in the industry have been technicians with NO degree, not PhD's!
I think the changes should be given enough time to take effect and produce results at Intel.
