Larry Page, who returned as chief executive of Google on Monday, put his stamp on how he will run the Internet giant with a major reorganization of his management team on Thursday.
The move comes three days after top Google executive Jonathan Rosenberg resigned from the Internet giant as Page began to try to restore the sense of urgency and innovation that was once the company's calling card.
On Thursday, Page put key executives in charge of their individual business units. They will report directly to him.
A Google spokesman confirmed that a reorganization had taken place but would not comment on the details.

The idea is to empower people, let them take risks and give them more authority over decisions
To me that reads like we can expect change for the sake of change as people within the company try to make names for themselves by tinkering or making "explainable" changes. Instability is usually the result, I hope Google doesn't fix what's not broken.
The "old Google" the article talks about wasn't filled with the same salary and bonus expectations from its execs.
