Improved Systems To Help Drive Turnaround
Whitman says HP has made significant investments in internal systems to help drive a turnaround. The lack of those critical internal systems was holding the company back, says Whitman. "I know many of you are thinking this sounds pretty basic, but the reality is when I arrived as CEO, basic instrumentation and operating cadences did not exist in the way that you would expect for a company of HP's size and scale and complexity," she said. "We had to build a lot of this from scratch."
