Jack Welch advice business quotes

Bureaucracy fears change, is terrified by speed
and hates simplicity.

Jack Welch

GE

 

 

Bureaucracy is the enemy

"Big corporations are filled with people in bureaucracy who want to cover things cover the bases, say they did everything a little bit. Well, now have people out there all by themselves, there they are, accountable for their successes and their failures... Some who looked good in the big bureaucracy looked silly when you left them alone."

Drop unnecessary work

Stop monitoring things and your subordinates' performance too closely. This sort of command-and-control management style does not permit managers to spot trouble soon enough.

Stop firming memos at one another as they prevent you from talking directly with junior managers and field workers.
