The Modern Work business focuses on three core commercial segments and Small to Medium-sized Businesses (SMB). The hero product sold to these segments is Microsoft 365 (M365). M365 originally launched three years ago as a licensing bundle that combined Office 365, Windows Enterprise, and EMS, which is becoming a single product that is much more than the sum of its parts. One year ago we referred to Microsoft 365 publicly as “the world’s productivity cloud,” and we were marketing it as a productivity service that applies cutting-edge innovations – like AI, process automation, and cross-workload integration – to the business of digital transformation.

The value prop and story for the Modern Work business and Microsoft 365 as a product continue to evolve, especially in light of global trends generated by COVID-19. As the Director of Business Management for the Modern Work Corporate Vice President and organization, you’ll not only work on one of the most iconic productivity businesses in the market, you’ll also play a pivotal role in transforming Modern Work into a strong growth engine during a historic time.
