Reading this book will not turn you into a high-tech titan. What it will do is provide you insight into the thoughts and strategies behind some of the most successful executives of our age.
The executive tales within are those of some of today’s financial giants. These executives are the titans of modem industry, sprung from the Pacific Northwest and Silicon Valley—much like the factories of Detroit, the financial towers of New York City, and the oilfields of Texas spawned titans of their own kind when those industries ruled American business.
Instead of assembly lines and power drills, these high-tech titans manage their businesses in an environment of clean rooms and computer screens filled with code. Today, no one would argue that without these individuals, the economy—as well as our lives—would be very different.
So what makes a titan? Well, a titan is someone who has achieved monetary success, for sure, but what else? It should be someone who has also grown a company with remarkable speed in an ever-changing environment rife with cunning competitors. It isn’t just about the company with the fastest chip, the best code, the most powerful marketing, or the best customer service.
In many cases, it’s about management: The person behind the logo, the executive who hired the crackcrjack programmers, the president who knew the mar ket was about to swing the other way and took a chance on a new and unproven development.
