NO RATINGS
I think that Tony's comment on the need for HP to tap an insider to run the company is very interesting. I can only assume that the board selected the outsider CEOs to bring about change or to foster new thinking. It seems that for many working in a company that bringing in a new upper level management person has negative connotations. I am not sure if this is warranted but oftentimes the newbie "shakes things up" and remakes the upper management team in their own image. In some cases this can bring much needed life / new ideas, in others it can start a cancer that will kill productivity and effectiveness of the organization over time. Never having been at that level of an organization I often wondered why things were done and what were they thinking.
