Though I purchased the book “The HP Way” long time back, I just managed to finish reading it a few weeks back. The book is written by HP (Hewlett Packard) co-founder & Silicon Valley legend David Packard. This small book of 200 pages is a must read for anyone in High Tech Industry. David talks about their early days around starting HP, how it got named and their initial challenges. One of the common business management myths the book dispels is that you need a clearly laid out Vision and Business Plan to run a successful business.
Though the book talks in detail about early decades in HP, it has little information on a modern day HP as we know it mainly because David handed over the reins to John Young as CEO in 1978 itself.
