This Businessweek article highlights some of Dell's business strategies and speaks of their success and continued efficiency. Their ability to choose wisely in which new markets to enter and their ability to manage well has kept them extremely profitable. This reinforces the Dell article that we read for class.
Dell is the master at selling direct, bypassing middlemen to deliver PCs cheaper than any of its rivals. And few would quarrel that it's the model of efficiency, with a far-flung supply chain knitted together so tightly that it's like one electrical wire, humming 24/7. Yet all this has been true for more than a decade. And although the entire computer industry has tried to replicate Dell's tactics, none can hold a candle to the company's results.
