Exiled Windows chief Sinofsky lands Harvard teaching job

Former Microsoft Executive Sinofsky

Let’s say you’re a brilliant person who got canned from your previous job because you supposedly did a poor job of working well with others. Where would you go next? If you’re former Windows president Steven Sinofsky, the answer is obvious: You’d become a Harvard professor! On his Twitter feed Wednesday, Sinofsky announced that he was “excited to return” to teach at Harvard Business School this coming spring, just weeks after he stepped down from his job at Microsoft (MSFT). CNET notes that Sinofsky had previously served as a “visiting scholar” at Harvard Business School in the late ’90s, so going back there to teach some classes seems like a logical transition gig for the former Windows chief.
