We’ve recently talked about HTC and that the company needs to act quickly if they don’t want to fade away. We wrote about what we think HTC should do and it looks like it’s not just us having that feeling. The Taiwanese company’s CEO, Peter Chou, thinks that there is an urgent need to “kill bureaucracy”.
In a recent e-mail to employees he mentioned that “bureaucracy crept in without clear ownership. We agreed to do something but we either didn’t do it or executed it loosely”. The e-mail addressed to the board of directors, chairwoman Cher Wang, and employees is a rather critical one: ““We have people in meeting and talking all the time but without decision, strategic direction or sense of urgency”. Peter Chou urged employees not to “let small things kill the major goals”.
HTC definitely has what it takes to succeed! They did that in the past and they will do it again, once they get back in the innovation game and deliver excellent products and services we’re used to seeing from the company.
