Bahrami, Homa
Publication date: 6/10/2015, pages 1-30

The Nimble Storage case focuses on a growing storage startup in Silicon Valley with CEO Suresh Vasudevan and Vice President of Human Resources, Paul Whitney. The case describes the history of the company, the context in which Whitney was hired, and key people initiatives. With the goal of becoming a billion dollar company in three years, Vasudevan and Whitney believed that Nimble’s people strategy would be critical and thus focused on short- and long-term people initiatives in order to scale. The study ends with the company’s new leadership program, LEAD and raises questions about Nimble’s future growth and international expansion.
