All of these decision have piled up a huge hurdle to the prosperity of the company and now there seems to be no way back. The layoffs are the first steps of many to the company’s despair. Laying off workforce has never brought profitability to any enterprise.

And as we are on that topic, let’s talk about the leadership. The demise of the company started when her highness, Carly Fiorina came at the helm. She plunged into the computer industry all-hands aboard. Bough COMPAQ and got rid of R&D for the sack of PCs and partnership with Microsoft on Windows platform.

COMPAQ received layoffs as its first gift and could never emerge as a brand for computers. Instead it was a part of the product name like Lenovo’s IdeaCenter or ThinkPad. This was the first caveat in HP’s prosperity. COMPAQ should have been HP’s Lenovo, not ThinkPad or IdeaPad.

Then  came Mr. Mark Hurd in 2005. He had the honours of buying 3Com and Palm, none of which became a good deed for the company.

Now it is time for Meg Whitman to make her mark in leading the company to green pastures. The ex-CEO at eBay, for the one who was fired, has done nothing of the sort that would make her exceptional at HP.

Whitman’s eBay bought PayPal, the world’s largest online money transaction platform and intelligently integrated it into the online shopping system. To be honest, that could have been possible with a good partnership with Peter Thiel. But intentions were different. However, Ms. Whitman lost the opportunity to make PayPal coupled with eBay an online shopping giant.
