“…ferocious arguing and disagreement about ideas in the pursuit of new knowledge“Andy Grove (CEO of Intel quoted in 1996)
Andy Grove was one of the first employees at Intel who was promoted to president in 1979. During his time as president the company grew to become the world’s 7th largest company.
This quote is in context of describing the intensity of culture within the organization and gives us a window into the culture he helped forge during the company’s period of incredible growth.
It feels like it should be part of a manifesto somewhere.
