the HP way

Bill & Dave: How Hewlett and Packard Built the World's Greatest Company is the best company/entrepreneur autobiography I've read thus far. Not only does it cover the beginnings of the valley, it reveals the ethics and integrity employed by its founders; helping them lead their company through unbelievable growth during both good and bad times.

I suspect no one strategy works forever. Every company should alternate between centralization/decentralization, entering new markets/focusing on core markets, innovation/conservation, etc...

Take care of your people and they will take care of you.
