HP’s Meg Whitman on Starting a New Job

Meg Whitman’s comments as CEO of the newly branded HP Enterprise:

  • Put partnership first. Believe in the power of collaboration, and take time to build strong relationships with your customers, partners and employees. If your partners are successful, you’re successful. Our transparency and proactive communication over the past year has united our employees, built trust among our customers and partners, and helped all of our stakeholders understand the benefits of the separation.
  • Have a bias for action. Take advantage of every new opportunity. If there are issues, “run to the fire” to resolve them. Be fast, nimble and responsive to customers, to partners, to employees, to the market and to your shareholders. Never sit still. Empower individuals to make decisions and hold them accountable.
  • Keep innovation at your core. Cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit across your entire organization – I assure you, this is possible even if your company is 75 years old. It’s now more critical than ever to invest in new thinking and technologies. At Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we are investing more than ever to be at the forefront of new markets.
