Does the HP board really think that’s enough? It seems the worst of all solutions: Patricia Dunn stays on the board and Mark Hurd is put in the poor governance position of being both chairman and the CEO. Another step down for HP.
When I searched for the press release on the HP site, I saw a link to blogs. They list eight executive blogs. Not one mentions anything of the phone records scandal or the board turmoil. I realize it’s a precarious position for an employee to reflect publicly on such a mess, but it doesn’t inspire much confidence in HP’s blogging culture.
