Carly Fiorina’s Legacy as CEO of Hewlett Packard

Carly Fiorina’s Legacy as CEO of Hewlett Packard

By Fouad Bendris

When Fiorina came to HP, the culture that she walked into was very much “aim, aim, aim and fire” — a slow culture, during a time when companies were moving very fast. In that context, she was what we want our change leaders to be — bold and disruptive. One of her moves was to buy Compaq, which had a fast moving “Internet” culture — “aim, fire, fire, re-aim, fire.”

Fouad Bendris’s insight:
The bottom line is that Carly Fiorina is not as good as she says she is, but she’s not as bad as her critics say. In politics, you’re either good or you’re terrible. But in business, the picture is often more nuanced !
