Signs of the stake 3.Lost top leadership in worldwide PC sales After 3 years of leadership: HP = 17.23% vs DELL = 17.18% 4.Revenue growth - 6% On PC Desktop (core product) -1% on all product segments
Signs of the stake (comments) 2nd challenge oHow to be the leader again ? It is the first time since 3 years that HP passes Dell. It shows that Dell has difficulties to implement is business model in Asia and emerging countries. It is crucial for Dell to adapt it at the context
II. What is Dell’s Singularity? “The direct model has become the backbone of our company, and the greatest tool in its growth”, Michael Dell
II. What is Dell’s Singularity? (Comments) Until 1984 the reference of US PC’s market was indirect model through retailers with expensive price. Michael Dell found a new angle. He done the anamorphous of the indirect business model and launched direct model. Better product for better price regarding IBM PC. Better gross margin due to short-circuit of retailer. Success was brilliantly until today. Whole company’s spirit is concentrated on Direct model; “Soul of Dell”. Dell corp. became a strong partner of Intel and Microsoft. Dell manufactures directly its computers systems. Dell is worldwide actor by: - 7 Manufacturing plants (US, Europe, Asia) - Enterprise and Contact Command Centers - Regional Offices Dell employs : people in US people in West Europe people in Asia Dell’s development is only internal growth without any external acquisition
What is Dell’s Singularity? Business model : “Direct Model” is “To Be Direct in all we do” …. this is “Soul of Dell” 1) Do-it-the-customer’s way => « Virtually integrating » customers into the corporation’s organization 2) Apply ‘Dell Effect’ to a Ripe Market => Jump into the market when it is standards-based before it becomes commoditized 3) Build-to-order => “Cutting inventory is financial imperative”, Kevin Rollins, CEO DELL 4) Culture of Execution =>“Dell Inc. is an extension of Dell the man” & Using ROIC metrics 5) Value information => Information flow: Suppliers + Customers + Employees + Managers + Metrics for « Liquidity, profitability and growth » 6) Get others to Do More of the Work « Choose what you want to excel at, and find great partners for the rest » How Dell Does It, Steven Holzner 1984, starting with 1000 US $ to reach 60 Billion US $ in 20 Years without any acquisition
Direct Model Seen from outside NEC’s spokesperson: « The « Be like Dell » model is not working for us Former GE CEO, Jack Welsh: « You have to just say « Michael Dell » has done a hell of a job. No one has pulled the levers of cost, quality and service better than Dell. Harvard professor, Clayton Christensen: Disruptive Innovation is a new business model that doesn’t attack the core market by bringing a better product to established users in direct competition … but rather it comes into the low end of the market through business model that can compete at much lower costs..”
Direct Model Seen from inside 1.Do-it-the-customer’s way => « Virtually integrating » customers into the corporation’s organization 2.Apply « Dell Effect » to a ripe market Jump into the market when it is standards-based before it becomes commoditized 3.Build-to-order: “Cutting inventory is financial imperative”, Kevin Rollins, CEO DELL 4.Culture of Execution “Dell Inc. is an extension of Dell the man”= “Soul of Dell” Using ROIC metrics From “How Dell does it” Feb 2OO6
5. Value information Information flow: suppliers + customers + employees + managers Metrics for « Liquidity, profitability and growth » 6. Get others to Do More of the Work « Choose what you want to excel at, and find great partners for the rest » From “How Dell does it” Feb 2OO6 Direct Model Seen from inside
Market segments Home & home office Small business Medium and Large Business Government, Education & Healthcare
Products and Markets segments (comments) Dell is enlarging continually its product proposal with oServers oMobility (notebook, MP3 players) oStorage oPrinters and Printing devices oImaging (TVs, cameras, etc) oand services.… Compatible with his direct model Dell offers a complete product line over the world for oHome and Home office oSmall Business oMedium and Large Business oGovernment, Education and Healthcare.

Despite of strong positions with its products but poor services level. oPerhaps Dell is stopped by cultural environment. Following slide show potentials revenue are very important at 2010 particularly for Dell, but are they in line to reach this objectives?
Forecast in 2010 (comments) -eTForecasts WORLDWIDE PC MARKET
IV. Failures of Dell 1.Financial Analysts and consulting offices explain failures of Dell by two thesis Thesis A Operational Excellence is in Question and Product diversity around PC market Thesis B Evolving his own “Direct Model” to adapt to International Markets outside HomeLand “Time to a new model?”
Failures of Dell Thesis A Facts Services Quality 1.Poor support External Call centres Temporary People Product quality 1.Exclusive contract with Intel 2.Exclusive contract with Microsoft 3.Laptops Battery Sony explosions 4.Poor R & D in technology 5.Products around PC world Actions in progress Services Quality 1.DELL would hire 1500 call centers workers 2.DELL would recruit a Chief Service Officer Services 21% growth vs. 5% growth for the company overall in Q2/2006 Product quality 1.Integrating AMD only in June Integrating Linux platforms for servers 3.Recalling for Laptops 4.Increase R & D Server and Storage. 5.Enlarging products Printing & Imaging Consumer electronics: smart phone, hybrid PDA-mobile phone market Home entertainment business: TV Plat screens
Failures of Dell Thesis B Facts Problem of selling PC DESKTOP to home users, China on 2005 => Different Customers’ behavior 2. Slow Growth NOT able to grow in emerging markets oChina (#3, 10%, 3,5 less market share than #1 Lenovo) oIndia (#4, 7% market share, 3 times less that #1 HP) % Central/East Europe ~26% Growth SLOW growth in mature markets US & Western Europe Growth < 5% Actions in Progress New Approach: « Purely You » More adapted for Consumer oriented business 2 “Dell Direct Stores” & 185 “Dell kiosks” in Malls in US Order face to face Delivery directly to customer Could Dell apply it to increase his growth outside US?
New Approach (comments) Extracts of Press article 1.« Is Dell’s growth sustainable ? » ZDNET, 2/11/ Time for a New Approach That's especially true in the consumer business. A marketing effort started over the summer with an advertising campaign featuring the tagline "Purely You" has not spurred significant sales growth with shoppers, say analysts. Rather, Dell's consumer business, which accounts for about 14% of total revenue, has struggled to make progress. 3.Dell Goes Retail... And Why That's a Tough Sell (July 23, 2006) 4.The company is opening mall locations to restore its lagging sales 5.Recall in 1993: SELLING through retailers in US DELL used indirect model: selling through kiosks in malls, DELL corners, through wall mart Results weren’t satisfying for supply chain costs and disturbing the whole company because Direct and Indirect distribution couldn’t run together.
What Dell say ? (Comments) ROIC 2010 goals, Dell Business Strategy Conference, 16 October ) Developing regions Latin America: 20% from EMEA ex-West Europe: 17% Asian Pacific ex-Japan: 13% 2) Developing countries Branding Segment focus for largest addressable profit Being flexible to local practices despite Direct Model Going to services Existing 3 manufacturing, new in India Enterprise Command centers 3) Mature Markets Maintain same strategy and market share Emphasis on services Manufacturing Centers in Ireland and Poland Y Enterprise Command center _30?c=us&l=en&s=corp Dell International Business Strategy Conference Call (October 16, 2006) bs.pdf ROIC= “Return Over Investment Capital” ROIC= “Return Over Investment Capital” Dell has acquired ASC (English IT consulting company 15/11/06)
VI. How to grow ? Future of
How to Grow ? 1.Extending the “Direct Model” area Dell is in “Trial & Error” strategy to extend toward near neighboring markets to PC Business Consumer Electronics -> Home Entertainment 2.Exporting the “Direct Model” to new markets and New Value proposal to other products outside the PC Business to Services rather than products
How to Grow? “Solutions” company: oDeveloping Infrastructure services: helping companies manage their computer operations ~ IBM oAcquiring/alliance making with infrastructure consulting companies (on 15/11/06, DELL has acquired ASC a British based IT infrastructure consulting company) Experimenting Remote tools in US: oDell Connect oDell Support
Comments Extending “Direct Model” area The Questions? Could Dell extend in the innovation phase rather than standardization phase? Could Dell extend to far neighbors products rather near neighbors : Smart phones, GPS, portable Video players, medical portable devices ?
How to grow ? “Direct Model” 1. Evolving the “Direct Model” itself Example: “Dell Direct stores” Blended approach: Face to face + virtual Would this permit Dell to grow in mature and emerging markets? 2.Product innovation + Customer Relation Innovation 3.Jumping into the market in Innovation phase rather than Standardization phase OR Commodity phase, finding the Anamorphous 4.Grow through acquisitions
Comments The Singular model of growth meets of problem of growth volume. DELL has its own culture “Direct Model” applied to PC business at large Dell's company has certain volume which make it more difficult to maneuver with agility. The Big question will be: If DELL in changing some of his executives (see Business Week article, 7/11) could change the culture inside DELL to export “Direct Model” toward services, HOW many degrees of liberty Dell could maneuver with Direct Model ?
Comments Dell s'offre une SSII anglaise pour mettre l'accent sur le support aux grands comptes Edition du 15/11/ par Vincent Delfau Dell vient de mettre la main sur une société de services informatiques britannique pour conseiller et accompagner les grands comptes dans leur passage à Vista. L'entreprise acquise, ACS, est spécialisée dans le conseil en infrastructure à destination des sociétés listées sur le FTSE l'indice de référence de la bourse de Londres. Si Dell n'a pas tenu à communiquer le montant de l'opération, le groupe texan a indiqué qu'ACS, qui sera complètement intégré au sein des opérations du groupe de Michael Dell, assistera les entreprises anglaises dans le déploiement de leurs applications, avec des solutions sur mesure, et les aidera à conserver leurs systèmes à jour. Dell semble avoir entendu les besoins, de plus en plus exprimés, d'assistance et de conseil en virtualisation, en sécurité et en produits estampillés Microsoft. Surtout, porter davantage d'attention aux services fournis à ses clients pourrait permettre au groupe de remonter une pente plutôt savonneuse : les résultats publiés lors des derniers trimestres se sont avérés décevants, le constructeur a dû rappeler plus de quatre millions de batteries pour PC portables et doit en outre se justifier auprès de la SEC sur certains aspects de ses méthodes comptables. Si l'essai est concluant en Angleterre, le constructeur pourrait étendre ce type de services à travers la planète. ACS est présent à Londres, Paris, Glasgow, Edimbourg et Pune, en Inde.Vincent Delfau Dell
