The Hurd, Dunn and their executive colleagues shouting matches and sideshows are getting juicy. Some board decisions are simply crazy. Why take collective responsibility, resolve on weird decisions and then embark on dangerous childish hide and seek games digging into one another\u2019s privacy. Even if there were real or imaginary threats caused by counterproductive leaks, and such unorthodox investigative decisions had to be taken, where was the critical oversight board charged with management of these risky overtures. I believe almost all the staff have been soaked into the scandal and business partners worldwide affected in one way or another.\n\u00a0\nHP Board Lacks IntegrityPosted Sept. 14By: Anonymous\nThe spying scandal is a sorry comedown for a company that HAD a reputation for excellence and integrity.The board\u2019s actions have been more of the CYA variety than of truthfulness.WHAT PHONE RECORDS? The board played dumb when they realized that directors\u2019 phone records were used in the leak investigation. No one asked, "How did we get these records?"BOARD MEMBER RESIGNED FOR "PERSONAL REASONS": Perkins resigned in May. HP resisted proper reporting to the SEC of the reasons for Perkins\u2019 resignation until the past few days.STONEWALLING: Dunn and Hurd have made only weak apologies. Dunn has been far more strident about tracing the leaks from an individual than about the corporate breech of integrity in fraudulent investigations.PROTECTING CRIMINALS: HP has refused to identify the private investigation firm or the third party investigators who are suspected of doing the pretexting.WEAK APPEASEMENT: Recent announcement of Board changes are weak.1. Dunn remains chair for 4 MONTHS.2. She remains on the Board.3. She will be replaced by Mark Hurd, who is also CEO and President.4. The Board will backtracking on its new rule, that the Chair and CEO would be different people. This weakens HP\u2019s Corporate Governance.If the Board had any integrity, it would have acted:Immediately, upon learning of wrong doingWthout coverup, without excusesWithout compromise to the offendersThe Board must demand Dunn\u2019s resignation from the Board. (There will be more legal fallout for HP if she remains, than if she leaves and HP cooperates fully with the California State, Federal, Congressional, SEC and FBI investigations).The Board needs to have a non-executive Chair. There needs to be a check on the CEO.The Board must make a public statement, repudiating in the strongest terms, the tactics used by its private investigators, and reiterating its stand on corporate integrity.The Board must take ACTION to convince the business and investment community that it is determined to regain the mantle of integrity and excellence it once had under Hewlett and Packard.
