Noticed in the WSJ this morning 9/21 that HP has announced plans to reduce the number of R&D projects they are doing.
According to the article they have 155 projects currently with 2-3 people working on each project. The new focus will be 25-30 projects with 25-30 team members staffing a project.
Obviously there are a lot of business decisions going on here, but the organization and people dynamics issue is the one I'm interested in right now.
Anyone have any thoughts or opinions?
