Wow. Just when I was commenting that it is tough to tell how well she has really done.
Fiorina's departure apparently stems from a disagreement with the board over the direction of the company.
"While I regret the board and I have differences about how to execute HP's strategy, I respect their decision," Fiorina said in a statement.
The fact that it is "effective immediately" implies that she isn't leaving on positive terms. And the stock is up, so some at least some people think this is good for HP. I wonder what Carly will do next? (Maybe she will start blogging!)
