The Six Transformations of Hewlett-Packard -- In startup history, Hewlett-Packard is the granddaddy of them all. Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard developed business and management practices we see reflected in Silicon Valley companies today. However, after 77 years of history and seven CEOs, the HP of today looks completely different from the company it was in 1939. How has leadership at Hewlett-Packard enabled the company to transform itself throughout its history? And what can todays founders learn from the companys ability to evolve?Becoming Hewlett Packard: Why Strategic Leadership Matters tackles these questions by studying the contributions of each of HPs CEOs, obtained through 15 years of primary research. Former HP executive Webb McKinney and strategy consultant Philip E. Meza join Museum CEO John Hollar for a conversation about the role of leadership in shaping HP and what startups can learn from its history.
