Much of what I’m calling Applied Wisdom was learned while working over the years alongside the remarkable people of Applied Materials. Smart, dedicated people from around the globe, representing many cultures, built the foundation of excellence that we honor this year and that Applied maintains every day. I consider myself so fortunate to have had the opportunity to lead the company for nearly three decades.

As we celebrate Applied’s 50th Anniversary, you are setting new records, growing the company and delivering cutting-edge innovation. Very few companies can make that claim as they turn 50.

What this company contributes to the world is just awesome. Never before has so much of our future rested on the abilities of Applied Materials to deliver the innovation that will power many of the technologies that the world demands. Together we can shape a better world for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren… for the next 50 years and beyond.

This special edition of Jim’s book is free for Applied Employees.
