HPE sales slide, profits evaporate... but think of the future, CEO urges

Mr Nobody 1

Business and Management speakers will dine out on the rise and fall of HP for years.

Whitman continues to make the usual mistake of setting redundancy targets - which will be implemented by the useless middle management - and then looks surprised when all the overhead layers are still in place, the frontline has reduced and the profits have taken another dive.

How many manager layers between a consultant on site and Meg Whitman 8 years ago and now?

The definition of stupid is repeating the same action and expecting a different outcome. This company is still doing the same things it was when I left 4 years ago.
