Our ambitions & values

Our founders had the foresight to know that building a great company required a special culture to thrive for the long term. At TI, we refer to this as Living Our Values, and it’s how we operate daily. Learn more by downloading "Living our values: TI’s ambitions, values, code of conduct and policies."  

Our ambitions

For decades, we have operated with a passion to create a better world by making electronics more affordable through semiconductors. For many years, we’ve run our business with three ambitions in mind:

  • We will act like owners who will own the company for decades.
  • We will adapt and succeed in a world that is ever-changing.
  • We will be a company that we’re personally proud to be a part of and would want as our neighbor.

When we’re successful in achieving these ambitions, our employees, customers, communities and shareholders all win.
