Watson Dynasty: The Fiery Reign and Troubled Legacy of IBM’s Founding Father and Son
Richard S. Tedlow (au)
For 57-years, the chief executives of IBM were Thomas J. Watson & Thomas J. Watson, father & son. IBM bears the imprint of both men, but it also bears the consequences of a family that was in near-constant conflict. This book explores the interplay between the personalities of these two men & the firm they created. Both Watsons had deeply held beliefs about what a corporation is & should be. These very ideals, however, also sowed the seeds for IBM’s disasters in the late 1980s & early 1990s, when the company lost sight of the original meaning behind many of the practices each man put into place. “Traces a family’s idiosyncratic ability to cope with each other’s weaknesses, but not their strengths.”
