Jeff Immelt语录

今天冲到邹岭的新办公室做客。在出租车上,翻了翻随身带的红皮的笔记本,发现一些2年前的一个eBay内部会议的潦草的记录。eBay开高层会议的时候常请来一些重量级的嘉宾。那一年是GE的Jeff Immelt。记录的东西没有任何条理,也不想加我的评论,仅仅是听到的只言片语。或许对大家也是个启发。

Big vs Small

  • Credibility
  • Big + Fast always beat small + fast
  • Love and inspire people, but GE is not for everyone
  • Mistakes we still make
    • Allow bureaucracy to win – too process based
    • Too intenal/too American – lose love of customers
    • Confuse current success with future position
    • Metrics that reward the wrong behavior
    • Play small

Leadership

  • I have stayed at GE for 25 years so that I could be in the front seat of history
  • Zoom in, zoom out…
  • “I don’t believe in professional management”.
  • 4-5 things deep dive
  • Good managers show interest…
  • These is no substance of experience
  • Build something that last is beautiful

Innovation

  • 10 years ago, everyone was trained by processes, like six-sigma. Now we are all about innovation
  • People has to be the core DNA of the company
  • You cannot just come to work and chop wood
  • You have to drive change and develop other leaders

Making deicisions and Communication

  • Make decision fast, faster and faster, for small companies, and large companies!
  • Decision cycle time
  • How the organization can be quicker
  • Clarity of community
  • Drive the speed
  • Decisive = clearly Yes or No
  • Clarify is key
  • When we go, we go
  • Make a very clear call

On Exit

  • Someone can run the business better than us, it is time to exit
  • A company that makes money from chaos.
  • In a good company, you always has to prioritize very hard
  • GE is all about system, that is tough to match

《Jeff Immelt语录》上的4个想法

  1. 10 years ago, everyone was trained by processes, like six-sigma. Now we are all about innovation. Great!

  2. 呵呵, 我觉得”I don’t believe in professional management”这句话挺有意思的。

  3. Immelt 所说的话都是对的。许多企业管理学教师跟他一样宣传这些对21世纪的CEO的要求。不过问题是,在最高领导之下的管理人员当中,几乎没人遵守这种“完善企业管理小手册”里面的内容。

    至于 ”Metrics that reward the wrong behavior“,人们都知道如果银行业重视这一点的话,我们就不会遭遇到目前的次级房贷风暴的。

  4. 次贷危机的确是对美国信用制度的一个大讽刺。
    规则制度是人制定的,就算再完美的制度规则,执行起来也会有疏忽和漏洞,就像软件是好东西,但是做过软件开发的人都知道,软件没有bug那是不可能的事情,硬件亦然。
