Ge’s Two Decade Transformation Jack Welch’s Leadership

...Change Management GE’s Two Decade Transformation: Jack Welch’s Leadership Answer 1 In April 1981, when Jack Welch became the CEO of GE, US was in recession. There were high interest rates. Strong dollar resulted in country’s highest unemployment rates. In this rapid changing and uncertain environment it was extremely difficult task for him to handle a conglomerate as big as GE and ensure that general confidence among the investors is not lost. His predecessor, Reg Jones, had set the bar extremely high at the company leaving a legacy for Welch to compete with as the new CEO. Also, acquiring new businesses and ensuring that each business unit under the GE umbrella was one of the best in its field was another challenge. Welch was extremely effective in taking over the GE reins. He challenged each to be ”better than the best” and planned radical changes across the company. Under his guidance, the company expanded dramatically from 1981 to 2001. * He instilled in everyone a culture of innovation and learning, and incorporated measures related to new product development, technological leadership, and rates of improvement. * He set the standard for each of business to become #1 or #2 or get out of business. * Welch categorized business in 3 circles as core, high technology and services and sold off 200 businesses which all together contributed for 25% of sales. * Even budgeting process got radically changed and evaluation started against external competition......

...systems, and approaches that differ from those used internally. (Sullivan, 2005) What happended at HP under the leadership of Leo Apotheker? Leo Apotheker was replaced after only eleven months as Hewlett-Packard’s CEO. Apotheker was the former head of European software giant SAP and was hired by Hewlett-Packard, one of the United States’ predominate hardware companies. HP’s software business made up around 2% of the company’s annual $125 billon revenue. (Goldman, 2011) Apotheker unsuccessfully tried to shift Hewlett-Packard’s culture from a hardware company to a more profitable software business. He knew and was successful in the software business and couldn’t make the transition to HP’s business plan. He made poor leadership choice and was stubborn about acquisitions, like Palm and Autonomy. By the end of tenure he wanted to take HP out of the hardware business altogether, an area of the market that HP led both in the United States and globally. (Goldman, 2011) Apotheker’s poor execution of his vision and lack of communication to investors drove HP stock shares down more than 40% in less than a year. He not only failed at conveying his vision for HP, but he couldn’t make the marriage of software and hardware work. HP may very well be out of business today if the board of directors had not removed him as CEO. (Goldman, 2011) Why did Leo Apotheker become CEO at HP? HP had three CEO’s in ten years. Leo Apotheker became CEO because Hewlett-Packard fired CEO......

Summary of Seven Transformations of Leadership

...In the article of “Seven Transformations of Leadership”, the authors, David Rooke and William R. Torbert, point out what is leaders’ action logic and how they influence leaders’ success by breaking down seven types leadership, Opportunist, Diplomat, Expert, Achiever, Individualist, Strategist, and Alchemist. It is a realistic statistic based on a 25 years of extensive surveyed research and sampled managers and professionals, between 25yrs-55yrs, at American and European Companies. It says every leader type differs from other by how those leaders interpret their surroundings and react when their power or safety is challenged. Once leaders who want to make an effort to understand their own action logic, they then can improve their ability to lead, so first of all a leader must understands what kind of leader you are. Expert typed action logic takes 38% that says the most of leaders and managers in the research belong to this leadership. They try to exercise self control by perfecting their knowledge, both in the professional and personal lives and they are so completely sure they are right because they usually use personal data to support their ideas and use loud voice persuading others. While they tend to work individually due to their untrusted character to their subordinations they may become hard to communicate very well. The most important is they lack of enough emotional intelligence to deal with this threating leadership. With so many leaders and managers......

...PERSPECTIVES BY Kurt StuKe The Unending Search Transformation in quality as a ‘thing in the making’ RECENTLY, STEPHEN K. Hacker wrote that “many of our organizations remain mired in their current states, frozen in old mindsets.” To free our organizations and 1 What follows is a contrast of the current grammar and its tacit assumptions concerning knowing, being and meaning to a different grammar born in the experiential-based philosophy of William James. The difference between grammars and the importance of the difference in the reconstruction of transformation and quality is explored. knower and thing known is usually referred to as the subject or object split within philosophy. The self or knower within such a vision is always distinct and apart from the world. The essential rationality and immutability of knowing and being within the traditional mindset lends itself to quantitative methods and statistical tools. You can progress safely through the define, measure, analyze, improve and control cycle—or choose not to—because the universe as defined through the traditional grammar is inherently knowable and predictable. You can differentiate between common cause and special-cause variation, and, by extension, processes that are in control and out of control because of the assumed stability within knowing, being and meaning. Language and meaning within these horizons also are based in antecedent truths. If you have the correct name of a thing, you have insight......

...teachings and sermons on transformation. Pray Lord we rejoice in your power to transform and thank you for giving us the instruments for our total transformation. I pray that you will use your Word, which your Holy Spirit will bring forth to keep us in the process of transformation. In Jesus’name. INTRODUCTION 1. In Ro 12:1-2, Paul makes the following plea regarding transforming our lives: "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, [which is] your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what [is] that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." NKJV but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. NLT but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. KJV but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how his ways will really satisfy you. TLB 2. As we consider this text, several questions come to mind... a. What does it mean to be transformed? b. What is the goal of transformation? c. What should motivate us to undergo transformation? d.

Hp Leadership

...Hewlett and Packard(HP) was started in 1936 by two electrical engineers from Stanford University, William Hewlett and David Packard in a garage. It started as an electronic measuring and testing instruments company and then it expanded into imaging, printer, personal computer and technology business. Traditionally when the company was under the CEO John Young in 1978, it produced wide array of products and managed to shine out as the market leader in printer business but then gradually its growth became stagnant due to various reasons. The organizational structure was too decentralized and complex. At that time HP had more than 130 products, which were managed by multiple divisions. These divisions lacked coordination thereby wasted time and effort in duplication of resources. Since they did not make most of the e-business revolution, companies like IBM and Sun Microsystems gained advantage over them. Their inability to cope with the changing conditions in the industry and recession in US by the end of 1990s had a further negative impact on their growth. In order to bring about changes in the organization, Carly Fiorina was appointed as the CEO in 1999. She had a clear vision and she concentrated on marketing to increase the company's profit. She restructured the organization by dividing the firm into 4 groups with 2 groups focusing on sales for business and customers and other 2 for manufacturing for each printing business and personal computer and IT business.

Ge's Two Decade Transformation: Jack Welch's Leadership

...GE’s Two Decade Transformation: Jack Welch’s Leadership Submitted by: Group 11 When Jack Welch took over GE as CEO in April 1981, GE comprised of a complex diversified conglomerate consisting of 10 overlaying groups of 46 divisions and 190 departments all supporting 43 business units. GE was already considered as a bench mark for its sophisticated strategic planning and management practices. But at that time US was facing recession, an economy of high unemployment, high interest rates, and strong U.S dollar. So Welch set in motion a series of changes that were to radically restructure the company over the next few years. Welch set the target for each of the businesses to be number 1 or 2. He laid down a three circle concepts in which each business was categorized as core, with the priority of investing in productivity and quality, high technology, with the purpose of having an edge over competitors and services, to add outstanding people and to make contiguous acquisition. He also followed a ‘fix, sell or close’ policy under which many businesses were sold. The money which was collected through sales was invested in acquisition. He tried to make GE more lean and agile which resulted in a highly disciplined de-staffing process. He chipped away bureaucracy, laborious strategic planning system was scrapped and instead real time planning system was bought in. Hierarchy was removed and confined to four levels and made all businesses to report directly to himself. Due to this......

Transformation Into Leadership

...ORG 560: Leadership Development January 20, 2013 Transformation into Leadership Any business runs efficaciously when it is controlled by a competent and persuasive supervisor. While mentors motivate their subordinates, it is not the only thing managers can do. A virtuous supervisor can configure the workplace in the position he desires. He epitomizes the principles of the establishment and most significantly, it has been perceived that effective leaders enjoy a capability to proliferate the productivity of the business. Background In 1992, the Department of Corrections built a prison in my hometown of Lancaster, California. Many of my friends applied for the five hundred job openings as a correctional officer. Although I was reluctant to apply for a career in such as a harsh environment within a state prison, these same friends convinced me to submit my application. After a rigorous twelve month hiring process coupled with a sixteen week academy, I was sworn in as a full time peace officer in April of 1994. As a peace officer, I was stationed at the Lancaster State Prison as a correctional officer. My leadership skills were negligible at this point in my career, as I only had attained entry level positions prior to the acceptance of this employment. Working as a correctional officer gave me the foundation of leadership as I supervised inmates on a daily basis. Effective communication with a diverse group informally enhanced my leadership......

Transformation Leadership

...failed to achieve the expected outcomes in terms of revenue growth, cost reduction, productivity and employees’ commitment (Marks, 2006). Although the failure of organizational changes is attributed by several various elements, Seo et al (2012) suggested that the human factor, particularly leaders, plays the most significant role in delivering the effectiveness of organizational change. Consequently, it is necessary to investigate leadership theories and how effectively it may result in effective organizational change. Firstly, the transformational leadership concept will be analyzed to evaluate their contribution to corporate changes. Subsequently, the case of ‘Centurion operation at Philips Electronics’ is applied to reflect this theory in practice. The third sector will examine the role of culture leadership in organisational changes. Finally, the insights of this theory will be assessed through one practical example in relation to mergers and acquisitions among companies, Renault-Nissan and Daimlerchrysler-Mitsubishi . Transformational leadership effectively changes organizations by engaging in a process, which compromising a chain of stages: identifying the need for change, generating a new vision, subsequently implementing change through individualized consideration and intellectual stimulation(Tichy and Devanna, 1990). Firstly, charismatic leaders are competent in undertaking the suitable actions at the suitable phase in the transformational process. When......

...Drivers, start your engines! NASCAR is defined by speed, adrenaline, and heart pumping action as cars zoom around the track at speeds up to 220 miles per hour. It is apparent why over six million people tune in to these races across the country. Although most of the glory goes to the winning driver, the entire crew is what makes these victories possible. As an intern for a company that works for NASCAR I have seen many different leadership skills and techniques that are applied throughout the industry. As a company and industry it has been able to grow and develop using these skills. Transformational leadership is the motivation, morale, and performance of followers through a variety of techniques. The best way to achieve transformational leadership in NASCAR is teamwork. Teamwork is essential in a business with so many varying elements; a driver needs a pit crew, vehicle engineers, a crew chief, and many other behind-the-scenes team members. But it takes much more than just the crew members for a racing team to be successful. The key to high performance in this industry is finding a racing team that has positive norms, cohesion, and innovation. One way to develop a high performance team is to look at the business as an open system. This means that the entire industry of NASCAR can only sustain itself by interacting with its environments and each team should view itself this way as well. NASCAR crews must be aware that their environment is constantly affecting the...

Cor Pulmonale

...Abstract Cor Pulmonale is the enlargement or alteration of the right ventricle of the heart, generally due to overload from high pressure (Bhattacharya, 2004; Hadjiliadis, 2013; Kavanagh, 2013; Leader, 2014; Malcolm & Arnold, 2013; Moore, 2012; Sovari, 2014). Often, right ventricular failure occurs as a result (Bhattacharya, 2004; Hadjiliadis, 2013; Kavanagh, 2013; Leader, 2014; Malcolm et al, 2013; Moore, 2012). Cor Pulmonale is commonly connected to lung disorders and other heart disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, also known to many as COPD (Bhattacharya, 2004; Hadjiliadis, 2013; Kavanagh, 2013; Leader, 2014; Malcolm et al., 2013; Moore, 2012; Sovari, 2014). COPD associated Cor Pulmonale accounts for the majority of all Cor Pulmonale cases, about 80%-90% (Kavanagh, 2013; Leader, 2014). There are many causes of Cor Pulmonale, such as hypertension, and pulmonary embolism, and it affects multiple body systems, like the circulatory and respiratory systems (Bhattacharya, 2004; Hadjiliadis, 2013; Kavanagh, 2013; Leader, 2014; Malcolm et al, 2013; Moore, 2012; Sovari, 2014). Diagnosis and treatment options change according to the cause (Bhattacharya, 2004; Hadjiliadis, 2013; Kavanagh, 2013; Malcolm et al, 2013; Moore, 2012; Sovari, 2014). Each option has differing efficacy and prognosis (Bhattacharya, 2004; Hadjiliadis, 2013). Causes of Cor Pulmonale may include high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, hypoxia, or low oxygen levels for substantial......

Ge's Two Decade Transformation: Jack Welch's Leadership

... GE’s Two Decade Transformation: Jack Welch’s Leadership 1. Jack Welch was hired to take on the role as the CEO at General Electric (GE) and responsible for rebuilding the organization. Jack was faced with several obstacles prior to taking on this position at GE. One obstacle was that prior to his assignment a powerful leader had a great impact on reorganizing GE’s business strategy. Another obstacle was that several companies were moving towards globalization and GE now had to compete in this market. Therefore, Welch had to react rather quickly before foreign companies replaced GE or any other company. The last challenge was that during 1981, the economic markets were experiencing a recession. Welch’s vision of reconstructing GE was that it became the most competitive, diversified, branded and profitable company in the near future. He suggested an effective strategy to help the company by fixing, selling or closing it. Therefore, he chose to make changes to the business strategy by doing away old culture and adapting effective new ways. First, he began by restructuring the company’s current departmental managers. These managers had to agree and commit to doing away with the old GE culture and accepting new ways. Second impact was that the company’s revenues increased by 9 billion dollars from 1981 through 1986 (Exhibit 1). However, GE’s operating earnings increased from 0 in 1981 to $36 billion in 1986 drastically during the same period (Exhibit 1). Therefore, the......
