Yahoo's (YHOO) game of executive musical chairs continues with the resignation of strategy SVP Jim Heckman. Heckman's departure is unsurprising given he was close to former interim CEO Ross Levinsohn, and was also pushing for Yahoo to outsource its ad tech ops (something the tech-focused Marissa Mayer may not be crazy about). The big question now is whether others close to Levinsohn, such as sales chief Michael Barrett, will also leave. (other departures)

    No big surprise there. I can't see how Mr Heckman would have fitted in with the new ' Mayer household '. Yahoo is effectively sorting itself out so that Marissa Mayer can move forward. The idea of 'outsourcing' was never something that was going to be trouble free anyway.
