HP's Grand Strategy
HP's Grand Strategy
1) Split the legendary company into two.
2) HP is cash strapped, wants to hive off non-core biz, brutally cut costs and man-power.
3) Generate billions of dollars by selling HPE assets and infusing the much needed cash for future acquisitions, and in its own words - Make HP great again.
