Lessons From Andy Grove

Andy Grove is in Fortune cover story.

"Harvard historian Richard Tedlow.... recounts a recent meeting Grove, who helped start Intel in 1968 and served as CEO from 1987 to 1998, had with Intel employees about the company's new health care initiative. He advised those employees to be "quick and dirty" and to "engage and then plan." He doesn't mean they should play dirty–they need dig deep and "get it better." His advice isn't what you would expect from a big company CEO, but Grove has never been a conventional manager as Tedlow outlines."
