Abstract

Change and the information‐technology (IT) industry are now almost synonymous. From Moore’s law, which predicts that computing power doubles every 18 months, to mega mergers such as the coming together of Compaq and HP, the IT industry is always on the move. Hewlett Packard’s evolution from humble beginnings in a Silicon Valley garage, though, has been among the most dramatic. The founders’ ethos – the relentless pursuit of inventive decision making in an entrepreneurial and innovative environment – was relatively simple.
