Cray Research, Inc.
Cray Research faces several management problems as a result of rapid growth and the need for continued growth. Issues to be discussed include 1) whether Cray should be a marketing or a technology company; 2) new and powerful competition; 3) products to offer as Cray moves out of its initial market segment; 4) growing pains (i.e., corporate culture, communications, etc.) and 5) is there "life after Seymour Cray" for Cray Research?
