hmm, your comments make me think even Steve Jobs would not be a good fit to be a CEO ... At least, BK has the credibility that the manufacturing group under his lead is two years ahead of the rest in the industry. Architecture (x86) and manufacturing (process) groups are the two most valuable assets. It is too risky for an outsider to manage both groups as CEO. Who knows the next CEO can be good or not if from outside. A not-well-fit CEO can bring down the giant quickly like Nokia. Intel's culture is also a different one. In history, Eric Kim(not CEO but 2nd rank) unsuccessfully tried to bring outside culture into Intel. Intel has an uphill battle in mobile front. This is caused by multiple reasons. Not a really high priority for mobile inside the company at early years, SoC learning-caused delay, no experience in very competitive phone biz, no LTE etc ... I heard from a friend that he is impressed not only by its available cash but also its politics... What BK needs to do probably is to pick a leader (maybe outsider) for its architecture group. The choice of BK is quite logical. Let's see what is the next step at Intel. Intel is late in mobile but no one can underestimate its power.

I'd say the education is not so much the issue as the ability to get into a more prestigious institution. So perhaps he can't do a Rubik's cube as fast of some of his engineers. Or maybe he was a party animal in high school. who knows. In the end, it really doesn't matter about his education. One thing's for sure.. .He knows how to work himself up the ladder...

I'd hire the lawyer with 30 years of experience with expertise in the type of issue I need help with and one who has been successful in that 30 years. sprite0022 we can turn it around and look at failing CEOs and question why their pedigrees did not prevent failure. Some people who went to elite universities do not want to believe that somebody with good instincts from a an average state university can do their job.

@dylan, sjsu's problem is not it's chem101 quality. why ppl want their kid go to harvard instead of sjsu, 1)it offers better class 2) it's a sign that their kids is smart. (GPA, SAT etc.) Krzanich's SJSU diploma means either 1) his dad was poor, 2) he suck at GPA, SAT etc, dumb maybe. just same as when you hire a lawyer in a murder case, you want a harvard graduate instead of a SJSU one. this is one of the important indicator of one's capability, take it or not. stay away from intel stock if you are smart.

Amazing, if we belive Intel is two years ahead of TSMC on manufacturing and yet cannot penetrate cell phone means... 1. x86 needs to morph more towards RISC (happening but legacy will not allow..) 2.or x86 is not bad but no clue of SOC design 3.we do undertand both, but our engineers need a referesh course...

Agreed. I'm not surprised at how fast he's moving. He had to know he was a potential CEO candidate, and one thing I'm sure he's been doing in recent years is making a list of changes he'd make if he got tapped for the position. Now he's the CEO, and is starting on making those changes.

Dylan, I don't see any discussion, just a troll "sprite0022" spewing out stuff. I've been noticing this "sprite0022"'s comments and they are mostly anti everything so far, but I suspect we'll soon here a leap into pro-China soon. That's what a human commenting engine does. Sharp, divisive, slow, soft and corrupting opinions ever slowly, dida dida dida... :- )

Mean while Intel is the largest semi producer in the world. I fail to see the point as there is no such thing as "one size" business strategy.
