This is more for people who work for tech firms than those who invest in or buy for them. Though I have noticed that folks who are treated better themselves are often far easier to interface with than those who live in horrid cubicle farms (particularly late in the day). Top employees typically have a choice and many pick salary as their deciding factor, but quality of living tends to be vastly more important. Firms with good employee care tend to have fewer employee problems and people may not live longer, but they seem to want to more often. In the end, over the years, Rob has learned it really is better for life quality to pick firms that care about their employees over those that treat them like a thing to be ridden hard and put away wet.

Over the last three decades, Rob Enderle has worked as an inside (ROLM/Siemens/IBM) or outside (Dataquest, Forrester, Enderle Group) technology analyst. He thought it would be interesting to share the 16 immutable rules that most people actually running tech companies don’t seem to know.

These rules define the differences between a company that is doing well, like Apple, and a company that is failing, like RIM. They anticipate the mistakes and suggest fixes to major financial, operational and PR problems the firms experience and provide a primer for anyone wanting to be successful in this segment. Many are not segment-oriented and could apply to any business at any level, but some are specific to technology.
