All this recent news about HP is really sad. The so called management gurus on the board, the former CEO all combined have done great disservice to everything that the original founders “H” and “P” stood for. The only good news at the moment is that Mark Hurd appears to be a sensible guy to lead the company and letting him consolidate power might not be a bad thing (at least in the short term). Any investigation into the recent scandal is likely to expose the inner workings of the Silicon Valley given that so many big-wigs are involved. It is not surprising that HP’s Chairman Patricia Dunn is being phased out given that she has chosen to take on some real heavy hitters —Tom Perkins and the like. It should be a great time for the press as the saga unfolds.
