The Andrew Grove and Bill Gates, chief administrative engineers of the digital revolution Digital,Despite the fame went to Gates because of his revolution, among other reasons, the Grovedeserves the top spot, there is no doubt that the Grove and Gates genius in technology, butGrove business manager led the wave that is unparalleled Great creativity, which washighlighted by microprocessor. This created the success of Intel. And lead to more sales thanfrom sales of Microsoft. The Grove-line record is invaluable for the things that drives Intel andgave clear advice and encouraging the new leaders who want to do the same, there is no higherorder than the cliffs in the area of management as a director or a strategic thinker Guide. In1979, Grove was promoted to president, and, in 1987, became chief executive. By then Noyceand Moore were pushing 60. They had masterminded an astonishing run of technologicalbreakthroughs: The first memory chip DRAM (dynamic random access memory), EPROM(erasable, programmable, read only memory), and the first microprocessor. Just as important,all four innovations had been exploited commercially to lucrative effect; for this Grove deservemuch of the credit. So, Intel sales and profit soared.
 Chapter One ± Raising Management Output
Andy Grove published high output management in 1983. Yet, despite the upheavals, grovefound that
most of the things that were useful in 1983 are still useful now; the basicmanagement remain largely unaffected
. That applies to the three ideas on which Grovesbook was founded:
The principles and disciples of manufacturing apply to other forms of businessenterprise, including most emphatically the wok of managers.
The output of managers is the output of the organizational units under their supervisionor influence.
A team will perform well only if peak performance is obtained from its individualmembers.
Business is a team activity. And it always takes a team to win
people contributing to acommon output, not people working together in groups
Shift your energy and attention to whatever will most increase the output of theorganization.
Leverage is a central concept for Grove. He works by an equation that says that for everyactivity performed by a manager, the output of organization should increase to some extent.The greater the increase, the higher the leverage. This has a direct link with the productivity,which can raised by:
Increasing the speed at which manager performs
Increasing the leverage associated with the various managerial activities.
Shifting the nix of managers activities from those with lower leverage to those withhigher leverage.
leverage can be ac
ieved by:
Many people being affected by one manager.
