In a dry fashion, Packard tells the true story of the mighty Hewlett-Packard Company: Two college buddies begin a partnership by producing an audio oscillator in a Palo Alto garage in 1938 and wind up 60 years later with a $25-billion-dollar electronics company on their hands. He wraps the book up tidily with a timeline of the company's development milestones. Packard chalks up success to many things, including government contracts during wartime, but mostly to the company's management outlook ("The HP Way"), which champions openness, honesty, and flexibility throughout the organization. Entrepreneurs and technologists alike will be interested in this journey of an American giant. Packard's tone sometimes veers toward the self-congratulatory, but in this case, it somehow seems justified.


"An unswerving chronology of the life and most good times of Hewlett-Packard, from its notional beginnings . . . to its luminous present.""--New York Times Book Review"

I have worked for Hewlett-Packard for six years. I find the stories explaining why the HP culture is in the existing way. In HP, we can use those stories as role model for how HP works. Therefore, I highly recommend HP staff to read this. In case that you are non-HP, you may need to read it several times before appreciating the HP culture.

David Packard writes a very candid portrait of how he and his partner Bill Hewlett built HP out of a garage, a little like Apple was created a generation later. Wonderful history.

They say engineers (myself included) are generally poor writers; then David Packard must be an absolute genius. David Packard's book (as has his company been one) is an important contribution and a must read for company executives. But it does require patience and dedication -- like the one he and Bill Hewlette had to endure to make HP a success! Once you get through the first 6 or 7 chapters the book becomes and absolute GEM. Until then -- and unfortunately you almost have to read the first few chapters -- the book is a positive cure for sleeplessness. HP's dedication to innovation, its financial frugality (which shows up in Dave Packard not hiring a good ghost writer or editor) and the importance of Management by Objectives, Decenterlized Organization, and Management by Walkign Around, Expected Returns on R&D are only some of the Gems hidden in this book; but you do have to mine to get to them and IMHO it is a worthwhile pain to go through. What also comes through is how HP slipped their biggest chance of dominating the chip and computer market by not taking the risk and cancelling the OMEGA project. Reading David Packard's fatalistic justifications is worth 10 times the price of the book. Also little credit is given to the inventor of the calculator that made HP a house hold name, and no mention is made of procurement of Appolo(until in Appendix 2)!!! Admittedly, I am at fault for having difficulty with this book. I read it after reading "Hard Drive, Bill Gatees and the Making of Microsoft Empire" by Jamve Wallace and Jim Erickson. These gentlemen are professional writers/journalists that know how to grab ones attention and keep it.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

I've read this book to find out what motivated the people and companies in Silicon Valley which many other contries want to have one in their territory. It gave me lesson that the venture needs to be based on the acknowledgement of the understanding that the world is complex. Once take this granted,you can understand Hewlett and Packard did a great job and put a milestone to those who still can't understand the complexity of the society

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vision and Core Values Exemplified! 1. September 2012
Von O. Halabieh - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As the title indicate this book is about the story of Hewlett Packard as told by one of the founding partners David Packard. This book offers a corporate history of how the company started from the infamous garage into a global enterprise, but more importantly focuses on the guiding principles on which this company was built - the HP Way.

What stands out in the HP Way is the deep commitment and belief in values and principles. These radiate from the founders and affect everyone and everything at HP. The HP Way covers all aspects of operations within the company and with external stakeholders (customers, shareholders etc.) in a way that transcends time and specific technologies (see below excerpts). Almost half a century later most of what is discussed is just as relevant than as it is now.

HP is currently in a desperate need to revive the HP Way and transform itself in order to turn itself around and succeed in the future. A highly recommended read.

Below are excerpts from the book that I found particularly insightful:

1- " has been a guiding principle in developing and managing HP. Get the best people, stress the importance of teamwork, and get them fired up to win the game."

2- "We published a second version of the objectives in 1966 and they are as follows...1) Profit: To recognize that profit is the best measure of our contribution to society and the ultimate source of our corporate strength...2) Customers: To strive for continual improvement in the quality, usefulness, and value of the products and services we offer our customers...3) Field of Interest: To concentrate our efforts, continually seeking new opportunities for growth but limiting our involvement o fields in which we have capability and can make a contribution. 4) Growth: To emphasize growth as a measure of strength and a requirement for survival. 5) Employees : To provide employment opportunities for HP people that include the opportunity to share in the company's success, which they help make possible. To provide them job security based on performance, and to provide the opportunity for personal satisfaction that comes from a sense of accomplishment in their work. 6) Organization: To maintain an organizational environment that fosters individual motivation, initiative, creativity, and a wide latitude of freedom in working toward established objectives and goals. 7) Citizenship: To meet the obligations of good citizenship by making contributions to the community and to the institutions in our society which generate the environment in which we operate."

3- "An important element of the HP Way has to do with the company's relationship with its shareholders and the investment community. A primary objective in this area is to provide consistency in our corporate performance, including steady growth in earnings and equity."

4- "At that time our policy at HP was to regard increased market share as a reward for doing things well - for providing customers with superior products and services and keeping our costs down. This has been a basic policy from the very beginning of our company, and we expect it to continue in the future."

5- "The key to HP's prospective involvement in any field of interest is contribution. Our objective is to expand and diversify only when we can build on our present strengths, and with the recognition that we have the proven capability to make a contribution. To meet this objective, it is important that we put maximum effort into our product-development programs. This means we must continually seek new ideas for new and better kinds of products."

6- "The fundamental basis for success in the operation of Hewlett-Packard is the job we do in satisfying the needs of our customers. We encourage every person in our organization to think continually about how his or her activities relate to the central purpose of serving our customers."

7- "...gains in quality come from meticulous attention to detail and every step in the manufacturing process must be done as carefully as possible, not as quickly as possible. This sounds simple, but it is achieved only if everyone in the organization is dedicated to quality."

8- "It's imperative that there be a strong spirit of helpfulness and cooperation among all elements of the company and that this spirit be recognized and respected as a cornerstone of the HP Way."

9- "Although we minimize corporate direction at HP, we consider ourselves one single company, with the flexibility of a small company and the strengths of a large one - the ability to draw on corporate resources and services; shared standards, values, and culture; common goals and objectives; and a single world identity."

10- "I should point out that the successful practice of management by objective is a two-way street. Managers at all levels must be sure that their people clearly understand the overall objectives and goals of the company, as well as the specific goals of their particular division or department. Thus, managers have a strong obligation to foster good communication and mutual understanding. Conversely, their people must take sufficient interest in their work to want to plan it, to propose new solutions to old problems, and to jump in when they have something to contribute."

3.0 von 5 Sternen Gives a decent story about HP, doesn't go into depth 31. Januar 2015
Von Joo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I had heard great things about this book, but I was somewhat disappointed by it. I had expected Packard to reflect on the qualities that really made HP great, and to some extent he did that. He talked about the company's history, its core values, and some key events in the company's history. But oftentimes crucial events were glossed over, like the time in the 80s or 70s that the company revived its sales performance. There was clearly an interesting case here to be analyzed, but Packard basically says that he gave the employees a speech and all was solved. Surely there was more to it than that!

But overall, the book reads easily and does provide a decent history of the company.
4.0 von 5 Sternen The Story of Silicon Valley Startup #1 28. April 2014
Von Edward J. Barton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The HP Way continues, through some 80 years of innovation and challenges. Reading David Packard's account of his early days and the founding of HP could be the story of a dot com entrepreneur today. The lessons learned and the principles applied are well spelled out in the book in the form of chapters on Innovation, Community Involvement, etc. As is noted by a few other reviewers, the book can bog down in spots, and the style is somewhat dry. Having said that, there is much wisdom in the pages - wisdom that is not bound by the times in which David Packard lived. Any manager or business owner should add this somewhere on their to read list. It is a relatively quick and easy read - and stylistic limitations aside - a valuable primer on the core values that drove HP to success, and continue to drive HP today.

someone recommended this book and said it would be a life was more of a mild reading about the origins of a major company that has now split into 2.
