Carly Fiorina's Sins

Read the list of Sins of Fiorina, quite an interesting list the two that i thought of as interesting are....

Not tolerating strength in others: Peter Drucker said about the study of what makes an effective executive. And that the good ones tolerate strength in others; the bad ones don't. Gates has Steve Ballmer. Michael Dell has Kevin Rollins. Larry Ellison has Jeff Henley. Carly had no one like that.

Lack of focus: Drucker's other great insight - Effective CEOs pick two tasks and devote their energies there. When those tasks are done, they don't go to #3. They make a new list. One overlooked trick to maintaining focus, Drucker told is to cut travel.

KKs Comments.. On the first point I really dont agree becoz the list is primarily that of first generation entreprenuers who started their own company's on their own ideas...take the case of Bill Gates or Dell or Larry Ellison.. But Carly is a different case altogether in my opinion...She is more of a hot shot Management CEO or whatever..
