What if…

What if Michael Dell was right?   The biggest tech companies are struggling in a crisis that seems not to have a end. Cisco, HP, even Microsoft have announced layouts and reduction of employee. We can say this is a common issue for a moment of crisis, companies need to rise up ROI and cost reduction is a key factor.

Chapter two: fairy tales Everything were so wonderful…. Once upon a time there was a company 🙂 … Ok don’t keep it wrong, it was not a fairy tale, livin in a startup is not always so good, but every startup share some specific characteristics: Nowhere to hide….
