The Intel trinity : how Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Andy Grove built the world's most important company by Michael S Malone( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The definitive history of the Intel Corporation--the essential company of the digital age--told through the lives of its three preeminent figures: Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Andy Grove. Intel has often been hailed as the most important company in the world, and with good reason: While technology companies come and go, Intel remains, more than four decades after its inception, a defining company of the global digital economy. The legendary inventor of the microprocessor--the single most significant product in the modern world--Intel today builds the tiny "engines" that power almost every intelligent electronic device on the planet. But the true story of Intel is the human story of the three geniuses behind it. In The Intel Trinity, Michael S. Malone takes an unflinching look at the strengths and weaknesses each member of the trio has brought to Intel, and how, without the perfect balance, the company would never have reached its current level of success. Robert Noyce, the most respected high-tech figure of his generation, brought credibility (and money) to the company's founding; Gordon Moore made Intel the world's technological leader; and Andy Grove relentlessly drove the company to ever-higher levels of success and competitiveness. Without any one of these figures, Intel would never have achieved its historic success; with them, Intel made possible the personal computer, the Internet, telecommunications, and the personal electronics revolution. Based on unprecedented access to corporate archives, The Intel Trinity reveals the fascinating stories behind the company's ubiquitous products and the unique business practices--including a willingness to commit to new ideas, an initiative to make bold investments in lean times, and a devotion to upholding Gordon Moore's namesake law--that led Intel to consistent success unheard of elsewhere in the tech world. The Intel Trinity is not just the story of Intel's legendary past; it is also an analysis of the formidable challenges that lie ahead as the company struggles to maintain its dominance, its culture, and its legacy"--From book jacket
Intellectual capital : realizing your company's true value by finding its hidden brainpower by Leif Edvinsson( Book )

30 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and French and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest challenges facing any business today is the gap between its balance sheet and its market valuation. This gap, representing the bulk of a company's true value, consists of indirect assets -organizational knowledge, customer satisfaction, product innovation, employee morale, patents, and trademarks - that never appear in its financial reports. Only in the last few years have companies and academics around the world tackled the challenge of measuring this "Intellectual Capital." And no company has taken IC measurement as far as the Swedish financial services company Skandia, which in 1995 published the world's first IC annual report. The executive who led the team, the first-ever director of Intellectual Capital, was Leif Edvinsson
Bill & Dave : how Hewlett and Packard built the world's greatest company by Michael S Malone( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most momentous first meeting in modern business history took place inthe unlikely setting of a bench beside a football field, between two Stanford University students in pads and helmets. A few years later in 1938, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard were working out of a small garage in Palo Alto, California, building their first product, an audio oscillator. It was the start not only of a legendary company but of an entire way of life in Silicon Valley - and, ultimately, our modern digital age." "Others have written about the rise of Hewlett-Packard, including Packard himself in a bestselling memoir. But acclaimed journalist Michael S. Malone is the first to get the full story, based on unlimited and exclusive access to corporate and private archives, along with hundreds of employee interviews. Malone draws on his new material to show how some of the most influential products of our time were invented, and how a culture of innovation led HP to unparalleled success for decades." "He also shows what was really behind the groundbreaking management philosophy - "the HP Way"--That put people ahead of products or profits. There have been attempts in recent years to discredit the HP Way as soft and outdated. But Malone argues that the HP Way was a hard-nosed business philosophy that combined simple objectives, trust in employees to make the right choices, and ruthless self-appraisal. It created a ferociously competitive and adaptive company - arguably the world's greatest company."--Jacket
The future arrived yesterday : the rise of the protean corporation and what it means for you by Michael S Malone( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bold vision about the ways companies will adapt and be reborn in a revolutionary world where business models implode and the search is on for what will work. The fate of newspapers and the music industry is a harbinger of what awaits every company: an aging business model in its death throes as people wake up to the grim fact that their products and the way they deliver them are out of sync not only with what customers want but how they want it. But commentator Michael Malone is back to make sense of this future: Survival will require companies to be "protean"--Nimble shape-shifters able to change direction and identity in response to a rapidly evolving international marketplace. They must, in other words, act like perpetual entrepreneurial start-ups.--From publisher description

The microprocessor : a biography by Michael S Malone( Book )

22 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and German and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is not what it seems. It appears to be about technology, but it is really about people. It looks like a history book, but it is really an adventure story. Even its title is an oxymoron. The Microprocessor: A Biography was not written for a select audience, but for every audience -- and especially for the general reader. The general reader, with little or no understanding of electronics and computers, will find a complete overview of the microprocessor written in a style that is intentionally non-technical and that takes great pains to explain complicated topics. He or she will also find, I hope, an entertaining story about human ambition, greed, teamwork, feuds, and glory. - Preface
Virtual selling : going beyond the automated sales force to achieve total sales quality by Thomas M Siebel( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead, Siebel and Malone demonstrate the need to incorporate Sales Force Automation (SFA) within an overall philosophy that supports the sales force by fully informing sales reps to assist them in real selling, not just data recording and analysis. The authors show how this new vision, called Virtual Selling, will spearhead a new generation of SFA design to provide powerful tools - from opportunity management systems and marketing encyclopedias to product configurations and team selling across multiple distribution channels - which will enhance customer contact and heighten the effectiveness of the sales representative

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In business, performance is key. In performance, how you organize can be the key to growth. In the past five years, the business world has seen the birth of a new breed of company--the exponential organization--that has revolutionized how a company can accelerate its growth by using technology. An ExO can eliminate the incremental, linear way traditional companies get bigger, leveraging assets like community, big data, algorithms, and new technology into achieving performance benchmarks ten times better than its peers. Three luminaries of the business world--Salim Ismail, Yuri van Geest, and Mike Malone--have researched this phenomenon and documented ten characteristics of exponential organizations. Here, In Exponential organizations, they walk the reader through how any company, from a startup to a multi-national, can become an ExO, streamline its performance, and grow to the next level."--Back cover

Der Mikroprozessor : eine ungewöhnliche Biographie by Michael S Malone( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in German and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Buch präsentiert einen faszinierenden Überblick über die inzwischen 25-jährige Geschichte des Mikroprozessors. Michael S. Malone beschreibt nicht allein die Herstellung und Arbeitsweise des Mikroprozessors auch in ihrer historischen Dimension, sondern läßt den Leser teilhaben an den spannenden Geschehnissen "hinter den Kulissen". Die Persönlichkeiten und Unternehmen, die die Entwicklung des Mikroprozessors entscheidend prägten - und somit nicht unerheblichen Einfluß auf Veränderungen in unserer Gesellschaft hatten - werden ausführlich gewürdigt. Ein Ausblick auf zukünftige Technologien und mögliche Entwicklungen "jenseits des Mikroprozessors" runden Malones geistreiche und unterhaltsam geschriebene Darstellung ab. Ich gehe davon aus, daß dieser U4-Text nicht verwendet werden soll, sondern der bereits auf dem Umschlagentwurf vorhandene, bitte ggf. mit Herrn Engesser/Frau Schindewolf abstimmen
