John Chen: Turnaround is two-thirds complete

BlackBerry CEO: Turnaround nearly complete

With a couple of days left before the latest Earnings Call, BlackBerry CEO John Chen announced that his turnaround of our favourite smartphone manufacturer is around two-thirds complete.

Speaking at an event in Toronto, Mr. Chen said:

“We have made investment over a billion-plus, all in software, all in security, and now we need to execute it.”

As we know, Mr. Chen has shifted the company’s focus towards software and security – particularly in the field of MDM (Mobile Device Management).

It is heartening to hear that Chen’s turnaround is continuing apace, despite the number of media outlets still proclaiming BlackBerry’s demise.

Here’s to the final third of the plan!
