This idea is summed up in what I regard as the single most important sentence of this book: The output of a manager is the output of the organizational units under his or her supervision or influence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic book on management and a great insight in the history of Intel
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 24, 2021
A fascinating read where Grove talks about how he pulled off the greatest transformation in the history of #Intel: moving from the memory business to microprocessors more than a decade after its founding.

During his tenure at Intel Corporation, he described the different reorganisations that the company went through, with the only one which was effective - which just about every large company or enterprise that he knew was organised was in a hybrid form, which consisted of mission-oriented departments. This reminding me of product lines.

Although it was published over 25 years ago, the management practices are timeless, where Grove touches on the negative impact of 'managerial meddling' (disempowerment) and he talks about productivity, work simplification and leverage with the goal to work smarter, not harder!

As Grove says "..the single most important sentence of this book: The output of a manager is the output of the organisation units under his or her supervision or influence".

The key to survival is to learn to add more value, which is ultimately what this book is about.

A classic book on management, which I'd recommend.
