Why does Intel need a CSO? Never had one before.

We already know what the strategy is it's to cut costs
@8xkc+175QEvjk, if asking about the acronym, Chief Strategy Officer. If asking about job function, it depends on whom you ask.
Ex-Intel here. What the hell’s a CSO?
@3zai+175QEvjk Completely agree with you. C players are hiring D and F players.
You would think that a CEO who lacks semi technology expertise and background would surround himself with people with strong skills in those areas. No.
@3ytu+175QEvjk, puzzled by our executive hiring decisions? Easy. C players hire F players.
Do Nvidia and AMD have CSO position? Did they even hire any outside consultant for strategy? I believe the answer is no. Why? Because they don’t need one. They just need to focus on their core business, hiring the best talents, designing the best CPU and GPU chips, hitting the market on time, and growing their ecosystem by providing the best SW enabling. That is the winning strategy, already proven by our competitors. Average engineers know that. For Intel, we also need to build the best Si. It’s a SHAME to the VPs and Fellows of a company that coined the term Moore’s law and dominated microprocessors for 30 years to hire from outside for strategy.
The United States DESPERATELY requires H1B and L1 visa reform if has been abused by too many US based companies for far too long.
@3hme, looks like Saf is far above all these people who you mentioned here. Check his qualifications.
2njr+175QEvjk, this guy has a background in electrical engineering with graduate degree from a top university. Moreover, he has provided strategies to manu companies. Can you compare his qualifications/experiences with those of the rest of the SVPs? If there's blind hiring–meaning removing names and other attributes that would show that he is a PoC and compare that with others–whom would you hire? Let's be fair and see beyond the skin color.
Is it really racism at intel or is it the fact that an American based company consistently hires in areas with lowest cost in order to save 30 pieces of silver and the American employees get pushed aside as they are considered too expensive. Could be that US citizens are sick and tired of this behavior.
You reap what you sow and you get what you pay for, or in this case don't pay for.
Sandy Rivera as VP of HR ?
Sandy Lopez as VP of Fashion?
I am always puzzled by our executive hiring decisions. Amir F as SVP of PEG (a person with no engineering background), Mike B in charge of mobile and wearables, aicha as cso, Murthy President. We somehow find very weak people, rejects, people with no direct background and expertise.
Heard that this guy is a friend of Aicha. If true, she is still influencing intel (as an outsider) when can we completely rid ourselves of her service
They probably brought Saf in because of his vast experiences in Strategy. Do they think just bringing ONE person will solve the racism at Intel? A Korean just sued the company for discrimination. Discrimination is systemic at Intel. So called FOCAL is rigged bigly.
Will see, my bet he is OUT in less than 2 YEARs... I am sure this will trigger "certain' folks and be labeled biased, racial, etc... but will see wont we..
Another weak hire. No relevant expertise. seems to be based on diversity.
Because they have no clue what to do with a bean counter on top.
Senior VP all fighting among themselves and no technologist at the top, duh
not true we did have one before, just not in the last year or so. Aisha Evans held previously
They needed a CxO position other than Chief Diversity Officer that could be filled by a PoC to virtue signal that Intel has +1 more Diversity than other tech companies that are managed better with much better stock performance. Remember who was the last CSO?
