Today’s email highlights the 7 objectives that make up the business management philosophy “The HP Way”
This is how David Packard describes these objectives:
Any organization, any group of people who have worked together for some time, develops a philosophy, a set of values, a series of traditions and customs. These in total, are unique to the organization. So it is with Hewlett-Packard. We have a set of values—deeply held beliefs that guide us in meeting our objectives, in working with one another, and in dealing with customers, shareholders, and others. Our corporate objectives serve as a day-to-day guide for decision making. To help us meet our objectives, we employ various plans and practices. It is the combination of these elements—our values, corporate objectives, plans and practices—that forms the HP Way.
