Slipping a little from last year, but still making the top 20 – Intel ranks well in Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2010. Fast Company focuses in on Single Chip Cloud Computing but that only scratches the surface of the innovation going on in this company. Consider our design wins in Health Care, our new 2010 Core Processor Family and on an entertainment level – our Sponsors of Tomorrow advertising campaign. All great stuff coming out of the halls of Intel.
Intel Executive ‘Rockstars’ have made the cover of this month’s edition of Fast Company, and the magazine has taken an in-depth look at how the company that pays my wage has transformed itself during one of the worst economic times of our generation. Of course, I am biased, but this is an article that’s worth the read. My favorite line harkens back to the days of Andy Grove:
“It was former Intel CEO Andy Grove — decidedly not quiet when angry — who was famous for his “silver-bullet test”: If you had only one bullet left for your competitors, which one would you shoot?”
We’re beyond the ‘silver-bullet test’ in my opinion – focusing on flawless execution and amazing technology rather than chambering that bullet.
Fast Company’s look at the world’s most innovative companies. Shameless plug for the company that employs me. Last year we were #34 so I’ll take the meteoric rise! Our page here, full article here.
