I hear this guy from GE recently was leading many failed projects and initiatives. They are dismantling the business he was a part of. What have we gotten ourselves into?

Fowler became CIO of GE in 2015 when the stock was at $32 or $33 per share, when he left in 2018 it was abot $13, and several months later $7.
So Veggie insists the CIO is an excellent axe-man. Which wouldn't be a bad course of action if the cuts focused upon the overpaid and overstaffed senior positions. Unfortunately the majority of job cuts are among the rank-and-file associates... at a time where outsourcing, contracting, interning, and H1B abuses at Nationwide are at rampant, all time highs. Just because a leader is (ostensibly) good for a business doesn't mean he's good for its hardworking, knowledgeable, productive employees. As such, critique of his leadership, vision, and decisions is absolutely warranted on websites like "www.thelayoff.com".
Too many cio's who are Alice in wonderland
Not true he is an amazing leader would get some efficiencies in the bloated IT .org. I worked with him as part of pro bono consulting assignment .. He quit because GE was going down the route which NW has multiple CIO running there own pony show. As GE sells business they wanted to make sure they could sell individual units which had all the leadership positions .. ceo, cio, cmo etc.. this change was long due. We have a lot of dead wood which needs to go. Too many cio's who are Alice in wonderland .. Have no clue .. what needs to be done ..
