Marc Andreessen as Interim CEO of HP : ScottOlsen.Net

It is now clear that the ouster of Mark Hurd by the Board of HP was a manufactured crisis, but the immediate perception of this being a hasty move still stands: this was a hasty, manufactured crisis. The hastiness was most revealed in the installation of the CFO, Cathie Lesjak, as the interim-CEO. From everything I’ve heard of Ms. Lesjak she is an extremely competent individual, no lightweight, but regardless of competence the optics of installing the CFO as the interim-CEO really makes this state of affairs an untenable situation. Putting in your CFO is the equivalent to hanging a Gone Fishin’ sign in the storefront for all your employees, partners, suppliers and customers to see. And Marc Andreessen has serious tech cred.

They came up with a management style dubbed “The HP Way,” which spelled out how to run a profitable company and live up to words such as “trust,” “respect for individuals,” and “uncompromising integrity.” They’re rolling over in their graves now: Hurd resigned today after admitting to a failure to live up to HP’s standards. His downfall followed a board investigation into sexual harassment allegations. Hurd managed to wow everyone in his five years at HP by reviving the company that had struggled under his predecessor, Carly Fiorina.

Our Wolfe's Den columnist wonders whether Hewlett-Packard's board isn't taking the easy way out--and potentially reducing future shareholder value--by forcing CEO Mark Hurd to resign. Whatever Hewlett-Packard's employees are feeling in the wake of the sudden resignation of CEO Mark Hurd, I suspect that the company's shareholders are thinking differently. Hey, I'm not defending Hurd for violating HP's standards of business conduct, but if the board's first responsibility is preserving shareholder value, isn't there a better way of handling things than a zero-tolerance kicking out the door of the guy who cleaned up Carly Fiorina's mess?

HP is going through a very delicate time right now, what with two major acquisitions -- 3Com and Palm -- still being integrated into the company. HP Contractor Didn’t Have Sex With Hurd, Lawyer Says.
