By 1998, when Fortune dubbed Carly Fiorina the most powerful woman in business, she was president of Lucent's Global Service Provider division, the company's core business unit. Fiorina found success meeting the rising demand for network technology from American businesses. Under her watch, the company's market share increased in every region for every product.
Isn’t this nice most powerful woman in business, excellent story’ but how about those people that her organization while working for Lucent Technology that she help put me out of business.

If it's all Fiorina's fault, why did almost all the other tech companies

Many of those companies are no longer in business today.
And if Fiorina was the problem why is HP's stock today almost exactly
where it was when she left in 2004, twelve years ago? Even king of the
empire Intel crashed and has never recovered. I'm not exactly
a big defender of Fiorina's business career, but to charge her with
running HP into the ground, implying that she caused the whole thing
isn't right either.
People have been asking Meg Whitman that too. Like Obama's economic
recovery, flat isn't good.
Like I said, wrong industry at the wrong time. The Compaq purchase could
be justified. The question in the industry was why the HP brand, which
was known for servers and printers, was shunted to the consumer arena
where it was weak, and Compaq, a consumer brand with a good reputation,
moved to the server side of the business.
In any business, when you take one path, you have to justify the loss of
opportunities from the path not taken. Compaq was in trouble when she
bought it. This was after the dotcom meltdown, so that wasn't an
unforeseen event in the future. The industry confusion about where HP
was going drove buyers to Dell. Any hope of challenging IBM in the
server market was a pipe dream. IBM read the tea leaves and unloaded the
PC division to Lenovo in 2005.
This isn't Monday morning quarterbacking. She made an unpopular
decision, it didn't work, and she was fired. Wunderkinden produce or
they're gone. It isn't government where you can screw up indefinitely.
... and test equipment! I had a client who was making some large test
equipment purchases when HP decided to "become" Agilent. The uncertainty
caused him to go with Tek for the entire lab! ("Are they getting ready to
SELL OFF the test instruments business? Will I have purchased several
hundred kilobucks of product that may -- or may not -- be supported in
the manner that I *expect* when I base my business on that support?
Will the next devices come from "People's Test Equipment Factory #2866",
formerly known as "Agilent"? Have they decided to just cater to the consumer

I didn't see Fiorina whining about the comments Trump made. I saw
her defend herself, turn it around and use it against Trump. And
once again, you really, really have blinders on. The one in this
campaign that has been continually whining all along has been TRUMP.
Whining that the party has been unfair, whining because Cruz paid
attention to the delegate selection process, hired the right people
to work it, put them in the states and picked up a few extra delegates.
Whining with a 15 minute rant against the publisher of the Union Leader,
attacking the man, because the paper endorsed another candidate.
Whining and mimicking the body movements of a disabled reporter,
because the reporter could not confirm Trump's lie about "thousands
and thousands of Arabs celebrating in JC on 9/11.
Whining that the party is corrupt and rigged, yet he's seeking to
win the nomination of that "corrupt" party, what does that say about
him? And you want to claim that Fiorina is a whiner? You're so
mesmerized by the shiny rude clown that you can't think straight.
I see, so no woman is qualified to be leader of the USA because
some puissant backward countries don't respect women.
I can imagine Thatcher doing exactly what Fiorina did to your boy Trump.
There was no whining. In fact, Fiorina didn't even bring it up. It
was the MEDIA that immediately jumped on what Trump said when he
disparaged Fiorina's looks. So Fiorina was drawn into it and responded
turning it around and pushing it back on Trump. What in your loony
Trumpie world should she have done? Agreed with Trump?
Please list for us the specifics of what you're talking about.
As usual, I'm expecting crickets. And once again, if you're so
worried about what went on in folks past business days, what
about Trump and his 4 business bankruptcies? What about the suit
for fraud that Trump is soon going to have to testify at, over
what went on at Trump University? Do you really think those
real estate seminars were worth $50K+, to learn the alleged
secrets of the Donald? What would you say if it were the Clintons
or Harry Reid that enticed people with a free seminar, then
worked them up, to a $500 seminar, a $2K seminar, all the way
to $50K? That told them during the seminar to go increase their
credit card limits during the break, so they would have credit
available for a real estate down payment, when the real purpose
was obviously to be able to have them charge the next higher
priced seminar on their cards at the end of the seminar? That
is what the plaintiffs say went on. And now you have some people
of modest means, retired folks, old folks, who just want a
refund and Mr. Billionaire says, SCREW YOU. That is OK, but
whatever went on at Lucent, is a crime?
Did they tell you that HP was already in trouble before Fiorina
was hired and that was the specific reason they went outside,
looking for a new CEO?
I think you made a spelling error. The real WINNER is Trump. Now we get to
see who really runs the party. Hint: It's NOT the Republican elites like
Mitt or people like you. Your conservative purity tests (of both posters
and candidates) have no meaning anymore. It was pretty funny to watch
Trump's poll numbers RISE after Mitt&McCain came out to denounce him.
The voters run the party and they're running away from Mitt, McCain, Ryan
and the Bushes. Every time one of them attacks Trump, he only grows in
stature as the anti-elite candidate. Even the Pope couldn't faze him.
You wanted someone to project a stronger presidential image than Obama? You
got him! Remember that quote about how "I didn't leave the Republican
party, it left me?" Now it applies to you. (-:

That he's the presumptive nominee doesn't change the fact that

Trump is very likely headed there too.
That remains to be seen. After what Trump is demonstrating in the last
5 days, I would not be surprised for the convention to deny him the
nomination anyway. He just told George S on ABC that he doesn't think
the party needs to be united to win. He's continuing to attack the party
and other GOP. He also told George "They say I'm not a conservative,
who the hell cares"? At least he's now admitting the truth. The truth
that I told everyone about since June. So, why should GOP conservatives vote
for him? One of the last possible reasons was over nominations to the SC.
Trump just told everyone that conservatism doesn't matter. He also has
said that his sister would make a good SC justice. His sister is a
federal judge who ruled to overturn partial birth abortion in NJ. So,
goodbye to the GOP conservatives.
Sure, there is an angry mob that represents less than 10% of all voters
that is behind Trump. You can't win the presidency with just that.
And thankfully, Trump is showing no signs of going beyond.
Yes, I want a strong president. But I don't want a maniac clown. And
I haven't left the party. I will vote the GOP down ticket, but never
for Trump. What do you think Trump is going to do to the GOP down
ticket? There is no Trump there, just the GOP that Trump is running
As of today, Trump's total is 10,647,150 votes and the fat lady hasn't
sung yet. In 2012 Romney had 9,947,433 when the gavel fell. Of course,
Mittens did lose...
Little Billy Kristol seems to be having a problem sucking someone into
his fantasy league.

Please heed the call

And rattle your walls

While I realize the number of eligible voters has grown quite a bit, the
only Republican primary candidate to get more votes than Trump has now
since 1980 was Bush in 2000. Both Obama and Clinton did better in 2008
because it was a hard fought primary that energized the Democrats but
the takeaway is only a small fraction of eligible voters vote for the
winning candidate in the primaries.
Trump is many things but one thing he has done is coalesced the people
who are sick of bait'n'switch Republicans. Considering his performance
in states with closed primaries, you can't explain it entirely by
invoking independents or crossover Democrats.

You're back to looking at how many primary votes Trump got

He can't win a general election with 10 mil people, alienating
so many of the rest of the ~126 mil.
Trump is the ultimate bait and switch. Now that the primary is over
he just said that he actually will raise taxes on the rich, not cut
them like his previous plan. His flipped on H1B visas, immigration,
just now on the min wage too.
I get it that he has alienated you personally but I will point out
*AGAIN* that he is on track to win more primary votes than any
Republican candidate *EVER*. By your logic no Republican could have ever
won. In the best of years slightly less than half of the voters loathe
the winner. In the worst of years you have the Goldwater disaster.
I have no problem with alienating some of the people who probably can't
or won't vote either. If the illegals don't like him, they can go back
to wherever they came from. Same for the Muslims. I guess we're stuck
with BLM but it's time they realize they are a minority and STFU. The
neocons that got us into the current mess? Screw them. The sellouts that
want to globalize the economy to the detriment of the country? When they
talk about enemies foreign and domestic, they're the domestic version as
far as I'm concerned.
I haven't voted for a Republican presidential candidate since 2000, but
I might just break the streak this year. Maybe Trump is blowing smoke
but at least it's the right color smoke. I guess I can go for the hope
and change bait one more time. Something has to give before America is a
third world colony.
