In the book Losing Faith by Bob Coleman and Logan Shrine, the authors talk about the evolution of Intel’s culture from Neuss and Moore’s “egalitarian meritocracy” to Grove’s “autocratic hierarchy” to Craig Barrett’s “aristocratic bureaucracy.”

To the chagrin of some Intelites, Gelsinger called his vision of Intel “Grovian.”

But it can be argued that the real glory days, when Intel was the first to launch MOS SRAM, introduced the first viable DRAM, invented EPROM, launched the first flash drive, pioneered the microprocessor market, won the IBM slot PC and launched on the market changes in the game 386 occurred during the egalitarian meritocracy.

However, restoring Intel’s egalitarian meritocracy may be beyond the reach of even Kickin ‘Pat.
