The management handbook for the 21st century

How do you take over from a wildly popular, highly effective boss and make fundamental company-wide changes--without creating panic and resentment?

How do you reshape and grow a successful 138-year-old global conglomerate to meet the challenges of a new century?

These are just some of the monumental challenges Jeff Immelt faced when he replaced the legendary Jack Welch as General Electric's CEO.

Written with the support and cooperation of top GE executives, including Immelt himself, this is the first book devoted to Jeff Immelt and his tenure at GE. It offers you a unique opportunity to learn, first-hand, how he achieved the impossible--replacing a seemingly irreplaceable leader and reshaping the company in the most difficult of conditions. More importantly, it shows you how to put Immelt's leadership and management best practices to work in your organization. You'll find priceless lessons about how to:

  • Create a learning environment and get your people to think
