Summary

Jack Welch's innovative leadership strategies revived a lagging GE, transforming it into a powerhouse with a staggering $300 billion-plus market capitalization. In writing Jack Welch and the GE Way, author Robert Slater was given unprecedented access to Welch and other prominent GE insiders. What emerged is a brilliant portrait that tells you what makes Jack Welch tick. Learn how to work the Welch magic on your own company as you find out how he dismantled the boundaries between management layers, between engineers and marketers, between GE and its customers to streamline the process of getting products and services to market. Get details on Welch's far-reaching Six Sigma quality initiative, and discover how its principles and standards can save billions of dollars, how and why he has made GE a truly global company (and why you must think global as well), and all the other Welch "Midas touch" strategies you can put to work in your organization, at every level!

Wish I listened to this along time ago

Great book really brought to life to me that what happened to GE then is still impacting businesses now. Jack must of been some guy and really value his commitment to get things done

Good business book, narrator a bit old fashioned

A good book, made a little harder to follow by the narrator. He has a somewhat stern approach to the narration which I found made it a little harder to follow.

The old way

Jack Welch is a brutal business man and this book glosses over that fact. Jack runs companies "the old way". His focus is purely on shareholder profits and his own profits above any good of his employees or workforce. This book sugar coats the surgical focus on improving a company by any means necessary while omitting much of the downsides of those choices.

Good Book

This book provides a broad look at what Jack Welch did at GE. It includes some the rationale for his decisions and an explanation of what that included, but really doesn't go much deeper than that.
