Dell Computers--An Overview
Analysis of the Problems

From the Paper:

"Over the course of the last two decades a number of new companies have made their mark on the business world. In many cases, these organizations have been successful because they have made the choice to utilize unique business models or organizational cultures that set them apart from more traditional companies. Such is the case with Dell Computers. A small start-up company that was founded by Michael Dell, Dell Computers has evolved to become one of the most profitable independent computer companies in the world. Despite the organization's notable success, it currently faces a number of daunting challenges to ensure its viability over the long-term."
