The New GE
IN THIS SUMMARY
The New GE profiles Jack Welch and provides current and future leaders with invaluable insights into the personal and professional characteristics and philosophy needed to lead U.S. enterprises in this increasingly chaotic age. Welch contends that winning required finding the key to dramatic, sustained productivity growth and that productivity must become a cultural phenomenon. To do this, companies will be forced to move to the radical and to initiate a revolution that touches every person in the organization every business day-requiring speed, simplicity, and self-confidence. Slater provides an inside look at how iconoclastic CEO pioneered the technique of restructuring to take General Electric from sales of $25 billion in 1980 to $60.2 billion in 1991, making the enterprise one of the most profitable companies in America.
