Unlike old Economy companies - the new Economy Enterprises have a tendency to grow on its own - till it stops! And then the management - both the board and the Leadership team have a way to stick to styles that lead them in destructive paths! High profile stories like IBM and Yahoo have hogged the media and prints- extending their life. And then there are more than a dozen in Valley that are imploding under the radar.
HP and HPE - its a shame that they couldn't even think of better names while splitting! Looking at it cant even tell which sells what! If you are doubting - try buying a PC on the web!
Ms Whitman seems to have fallen in that trap and taking the highway to destruction.
Maybe IBM and Dell could leverage this mess!
