Andrew Grove (1936-Present)

“If the world operates as one big market, every employee will compete with every person anywhere in the world who is capable of doing the same job. There are lots of them and many of them are hungry.”

“There is at least one point in the history of any company when you have to change dramatically to rise to the next level of performance. Miss that moment – and you start to decline.”

“Just as we could have rode into the sunset, along came the Internet, and it tripled the significance of the PC.”

“In terms of interest, in terms of press attention, in terms of concern, [the Internet phenomenon] is growing, … I think the next move is to bite the bullet and spend the money that is required to build the necessary infrastructure for e-commerce.”

“Leaders have to act more quickly today. The pressure comes much faster.”

“Competition, … the best place in the world to trade electronically by 2002.”

“So give me a turbulent world as opposed to a quiet world and I´ll take the turbulent one.”

“E-commerce does provide a very clear competitive advantage to companies that embrace it, … Nothing can spur you on to be aggressive as much as seeing somebody who is outdistancing you.”
