Assignment: Case Study: Michael Dell-The Man Behind Dell, PowerPoint Presentation (Change Management)
21st Century Leadership And Beyond.
Michael Dell began building and selling computers from his dorm room at age 19. He dropped out of the University of Texas when his sales hit $60 million and has never looked back. Dell is said to be the fifteenth richest man in America, and the youngest CEO to make the Fortune 500. Intensely private and notoriously shy, Dell is hailed as a corporate wonder-kid. He climbed to the top by exploiting tax loopholes, outsourcing the competition, and inventing a term called "leveraged recapitalization."
