Patricia Dunn MUST go

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 6:39 pm

Heads are rolling at HP. Two key HP employees involved in the pretexting scandal are gone. However, one more needs to go. Her name is Patricia Dunn. If it is serious enough to fire the two employees, how about the person they report to. At present, all indicators point to the fact that Ms Dunn is the one they reported to. The buck does not stop at the two employees, but their boss(es) higher up the chain.

She may be a valuable board member to HP, so fire her, wait for 3 months, then rehire her. Keep the director seat vacant for the time she is away for all I care. Although in practical terms, it is the same as forcing she extended vacation, this solution is not acceptable. The key here is she must be fired. Firing her shows that HP acknowledges the seriousness of her “miscaluculation”. You cannot simply have one rules for directors, another for everyone else. Well, … may be you can have two rules: a stricter one for the directors, not a lenient one for directors. HP is not a small private company where the directors can be tyrants. If it is, the whole HP ship will sink already.
