General Electric

GE

U.S.

General Electric is transforming itself urgently after its share price collapsed in 2017 and continued to fall into 2018. Longtime CEO Jeff Immelt stepped down in October 2017, and his successor, company veteran John Flannery, has promised major changes, saying “everything is on the table,” including a possible break-up. Most troubled now is GE’s largest business, which makes and services giant turbines for electric utilities; orders and profits plunged in 2017, and Flannery has set expectations low for 2018. But he says GE’s problems extend beyond any one business and include capital allocation, culture, and execution–big factors to try to reform.
