Through the narration of his personal experience as an employee and CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella writes about individual change and the transformation of the company, especially at the level of culture. He tells how the movement for change began within this IT giant, and then goes on to describe the principles that will guide the major technological changes to come in the near future: artificial intelligence, mixed reality and quantum computing. It is about how people, organizations and societies can and must transform and "refresh" themselves in their persistent search for new energy, new ideas and continuous relevance and renewal. 

Microsoft's CEO tells the inside story of the company's ongoing transformation, tracing his own personal journey from a childhood in India to leading some of the most significant technological changes of the digital age. Satya Nadella explores a fascinating childhood before emigrating to the United States and how he learned to lead along the way. He then shares his reflections as acting CEO, an unknown after Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer. He tells the inside story of how one company rediscovered its soul, transforming everything from culture to its fiercely competitive landscape and industry partnerships. As much a humanist as he is an engineer and executive, Nadella concludes with his vision for the next wave of technology, exploring the potential impact for society and issuing a call to action for world leaders.
