Today, that company-Hewlett-Packard-is universally acclaimed as the world's most admired technology corporation. Hewlett-Packard produces thousands of innovative products for customers around the globe and boasts nearly $24 billion in sales. Now, Bill Hewlett and David Packard's wildly successful approach to business is immortalized in The HP Way. Any manager or supervisor will be fascinated by their story and by the ways they used openness to change, unrelenting determination to win, and the virtue of sustained hard work to succeed.
