Dell is fond of greatly simplifying it’s strategy to a handful of phrases, or even just words. This is a nice slide from the Dell analyst summit going on covering the corporate strategy now: clearly, paying down the debt that financed going private, run things lean, grow existing businesses (and fix up GTM). While “come up with new stuff that people want to buy” isn’t there, in earlier Tom Sweet said that R&D spend had increased to 2.1% of revenue, up from 1.6% (before going private, I believe).
