If there is one company that over the past years continuously humiliated and defeated HP, it has been Dell.
So what do you do to get back at the bigger,
better and stronger competitor from Texas? Why you hire hire their CIO Randall Mott, of course.
Mott's appointment signals another corporate
reshuffling in HP's top management.
Former CIO Gilles Bouchard combined the CIO role with the job of executive vice president of Global Operations. He will stay on in the latter fuction.
Last month the computer and printer manufacturer also appointed separate managers for the Personal Systems Group and the Imaging and Printing Group – the two jobs had been merged in January.
It isn't hard to see what HP CEO Mark Hurd is doing here. One job function – one guy. Just like the managementbooks teach you.
The question remains however if this will
help him to quickly turn around the ailing high tech company. So far he actions look like a post-revolutionary movement that is trying to remove all signs
reminding of the former ruler. For the sake of removing them.
They won't be saving that picture either. (Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina and Gwen Stefani, last January at CES in Las Vegas)
