New Insider Book, "Losing Faith," Critical of Intel Management After Andy Grove

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2007 -- "Losing Faith" raises many questions: Is Intel anything more than a one hit wonder? Will the company ever show organic growth beyond their core microprocessor business?

What we find inside "Losing Faith" is a fascinating journey with each page taking the reader through an incisive analysis of the company's cultural changes under each of its CEOs. It gives particular weight to the legacy of Andy Grove, who nourished a culture of intimidation that had less obvious, pernicious long-term effects. "Losing Faith" is particularly critical of the less than stellar years under Craig Barrett where the culture became less focused and more bureaucratic, putting Intel's microprocessor design significantly behind AMD for the first time in its history.

After swallowing over $10 billion in acquisitions, "Losing Faith" questions whether there is a cohesive strategy guiding the company into the 21st century; or is current management only capable of living off its past glory and protecting its microprocessor "golden goose?" The book leaves you wondering if Intel is a ship without a rudder, especially as the digital world goes through its next revolution in the home.
