4. Mike Sievert, Corporate Vice President, Windows Marketing


Sievert is one of the few executives who survived the fiasco that was the Windows Vista launch. Still, the operating system's marketplace reception and perception about its value tarnished his star.


Among Microsoft's 70,000-plus employees, there are many influential people. Twenty-five is too small a number to capture the best of the best among a large group of creative people. But Microsoft corporate culture also is very staid and insular, with a top-heavy power structure. Therefore, for this list, I focused more on operational influencers, although there are some thought leaders included. By Joe Wilcox, Microsoft Watch
