A Strange SAP Press Release

What an odd press release from SAP. Shai Agassi, the company’s wunderkind rising star, is leaving. Because he wants to devote more time to his personal passion for alternative energy. Or, because he’s unwilling to wait until 2009 to take over as CEO.

Huh?

Maybe this is a cultural thing — in the US, the release would just say that he “wants to spend more time with his family.”
