Whenever the people are well--informed, they can be trusted with their own government.
~ Thomas Jefferson

The purpose of existence of an organization is to create value. Value begets trust and vice-versa. Trust and Value are of prime importance for an organization to grow in a sustainable manner. The following summary explains the importance of the same in a holistic manner, where-about a case of “The way forward for Agilent Technologies Ltd” is discussed upon.
Hewlett-Packard (HP), an American multinational information technology corporation, was founded in a one-car garage in Palo Alto by William Bill Redington Hewlett and Dave Packard in 1935. As a startup, their main presence was in the test and measurement (T&M) industry. In the due course, HP diversified its product portfolio by venturing into the semiconductor products, printers, imaging equipment, computers and servers, health-care solutions and chemical analysis industries. The entrepreneurial culture which prevailed amongst its employees helped the startup grow into a multinational corporation. The founders, Bill and Dave, developed a unique management style that came to be known as “The HP Way”. In Bill's words, the HP Way is a core ideology which includes a deep respect for the individual, a dedication to affordable quality and reliability, a commitment to community responsibility, and a view that the company exists to make technical contributions for the advancement and welfare of humanity.
In the late 1990s, HP decided to have a major restructure in its business verticals and opted for a spin-off. This decision marked the birth of Agilent Technologies. The move helped HP (the parent company) to focus more on its B2C market.
