Seagate Technology

IJLE Volume 1 Issue 1:


Author(s): Phyllis Siegel

This case pertains to the managing of events that surrounded Seagate Technology?s shift to a team-based work environment in 1998. The case focuses on the High Performance Products (HPP) division, a business segment which comprises roughly 40% of Seagate's total annual sales and specializes in the design, manufacturing, and marketing of ultra-high-performance disk drives. The effectiveness of the restructuring of the HPP division into core teams is examined from the perspectives of corporate, senior, and middle management. In the context of this major initiative, the Senior Vice President in charge of the HPP division has articulated two business objectives: faster time to market and employee work-life balance. The extent to which these goals are effectively implemented and achieved are explored from the vantage points of the firm?s chief technology officer, the HPP division head, middle level management, human resources, and the employees who are affected by the change initiative.
