The company motto is "People who do" and there are "do" related slogans printed on the walls all around the workplace. The company started when the interest in PC's was growing in China and they provided a solution for English to Chinese translation. They've remained focused on the individual consumer and to that end, Lenovo has really embraced social media, both as an advertising tool outside the company and a collaboration tool inside the company. They are an AGILE culture - decide and do quickly, learn and improve continuously. Management is relaxed but focused on goals set by senior management. Employees are expected to set clear goals, are encouraged to collaborate on new projects and are given the autonomy to create their own work flows. Lenovo uses Sharepoint for file sharing and work flow management.
