More on the HP board's latest decisions.

Look, I don't know Meg Whitman.  I like eBay, but that's not the point.  Here's an interesting take forwarded to me from my buddy Richard Peck (here).

A few take-aways:
  1. Process matters.  Follow the procedures for, say, hiring and firing, and there'll be fewer reasons to attack the decision.  (Not zero, but fewer.)
  2. If something isn't working well, perhaps it's a good idea to figure out what's gone wrong before jumping into something new.  History is a useful tool when it's ... used.
  3. Seriously, I need to be on a public board or two.  I think that I could be useful.
