  9. Amending the SMaC Recipe • 1985 - Intel realized their DRAMS business was untenable • Japanese competitors drove prices down 80% • Spent 16 years of ‘bullets’, building momentum into microprocessors • Executives ‘zoomed out’ and realized they had to get out of DRAMS • Changed just one aspect of their recipe; kept the rest unchanged • Upheld Moore’s Law, R&D, etc • Good 10X company

How Not to Amend a SMaC Recipe • AMD supplied chips for military • Jerry Sanders decided an entire new recipe based on “Asparagus” • High-cost R&D, high prices • Changed their SMaC Recipe 3 more times after that • Went to old strategy and ‘some’ asparagus • Then to “P3 Strategy” (platforms, process, production) • Ended with “customer-centric innovation” • Never

  11. How to Amend a SMaC Recipe • Microsoft used both empirical creativity and productive paranoia • Started with stand-alone personal computer business • James J. Allard “sounded an alarm” over the rise of the Inernet • Bill Gates already had annual ‘Think Week’ • Used it to reflect on the Internet, sent memo • Made 180-degree change overnight • But did not abandon normal business focus on software, applications, etc. • Microsoft made a dramatic change but still was a 10Xer

  12. Consistency and Change Amendment mechanism: allowed for the Constitution to evolve as America evolved High hurdles for change, making it stable Constitution only amended 17 times between 1791 and 2011 All human enterprises require a specific recipe for consistency and change
