Abstract:
Jeffrey Immelt became Chairman and CEO of GE in September 2001. Succeeding Jack Welch was a challenge in itself, but instead of trying to emulate Welch’s time tested corporate management philosophies, Immelt charted his own leadership style and brought about a cultural revolution in GE. Expectations were high and the challenges were many. Immelt had to face several challenges. He had to provide leadership and lend vision to a large, diverse conglomerate like GE in the post 9/11 volatile global business scenario. He also had to shift the company’s focus towards innovation and customer centricity in addition to posting continued growth in a sluggish economy. The case study discusses Immelt’s innovation and customer centric approach and the impact it would have on the company.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the role of innovation in GE
