Andy Grove

subjects Andy Grove writes about Organization, General Management, Corporate Strategy
Andy Grove's profile Andy Grove has spent his life looking over his shoulder.

The title of one of his books sums it up: Only the Paranoid Survive. Survival was Grove's motivation when he escaped from the Nazis under an assumed identity, when he crawled across the border of Communist Hungary to Austria, and when he took the helm of Intel Corp.

Grove is a sentry, listening for threats to his being and to his company. He vigilantly looks for what he calls "strategic inflection points," those times when life or business is changing so dramatically that survival depends on anticipating, gathering data and taking action. The action may involve risk, but, he says, inaction also involves risk.

And Grove takes his own advice. In 1985, beaten by the Japanese in memory chips, the then CEO of Intel bet the company's future on the microprocessor, where he hoped the Japanese would find it difficult to follow. The strategy worked.
