I wonder if CD and NR where actually listened to by Culp and Miller vs being screwed over by Fouler and BR who had the ear of no jet John.
I bet they realized it would cost a ton more to outsource this stuff to a company outside GE that had to worry about its own bottom line.
The 6 months of hell you put everyone through wasn’t cool though. But that’s business.
We are going full circle back to having Corporate IT. The businesses can b--ch all they want but it brings economy of scale and uniformity.
I can’t believe I’m saying this but CD actually might turn this around under the right CEO.
And yes we should lay off some of the bloated areas. But it should be done based on cost and risk.
