For Microsoft, 2006 was a year of new product introductions: the Windows Vista operating system, a new version of Office and the Zune music player, to name a few. For Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer -- who spoke at Wharton recently as part of the school's Leadership Lecture series -- these new products serve as a reminder of his goals: Convince customers that Microsoft's latest products are ground-breaking, transform a company with $44 billion in sales into an agile innovator, compete against new business models and recruit enough talent to keep the software giant relevant 25 years from now.
