Sometimes research projects require that you go a little more deeply. This is especially true when you're searching out information about a company, its people, and their connections. For obvious reasons, sometimes this information can be closely held.
In this weeks's Challenge I ask you to look a little into the present and past of one such well-known company. Imagine that you're a reporter and you need to fill in a few of the missing parts of your story. Can you do this on deadline?
1. Is is possible for you to find a relatively recent organization chart for the Xerox company? (Say, within the past year.)
2. If so, where does Steve Hoover sit in this organization?
3. How many people directly report to him?
4. What boards does he sit on?
5. What was MY (Dan's) first job after getting my PhD?
6. Did Steve Hoover and I ever work at the same place at the same time?
These questions aren't hard by themselves, but they might require a bit of looking in non-standard places for the answers.
Be sure to tell us HOW you found these answers. I'm really interested in the places where you found the solutions. (I'm pretty sure they're not all in the same place.)
