Wrapped up reading the memoir of Carly Fiorina!

leave a comment »

This book is well written. The difficulties Carly experienced whilst at Hewlett Packard (NYSE: HPQ) have been documented well including her exit and the ignominious behavior of the board.

Coincidentally, that is the not the first woman CEO or Chairman of the HP board to be sacked by the board without a proper redressal committee.

Patricia “Pattie” Dunn had to face the same music earlier this year (2007) when she was unceremoniously dumped as Chairman of the board in Jan 2007 when she was accused of spying on the private calls of board members of HP.

I emerge with more respect for Carly Fiorina after having read up her memoir.

Hats off to you, Carly – you made a difference!

The HP and the HP invent logo has stayed (maybe not on the HP corporate logo but in the minds of the people using HP products!). The products of HP are much better and yes, “The computer is personal again”!

The company Lucent (NYSE: LU) you helped spin-off has merged with European telecom giant, Alcatel (NYSE: ALA).

DELL Computers Corp. (NASDAQ: DELL) is floundering forcing Michael DELL to reinstate himself as the CEO and HP has pipped DELL to the post in recent quarters!
