    " Nice read. Manythings are those which you know but never applied and many things are which come with experience. There is a sharp contrast between Toyota Culture and GE culture. GE believes in keeping the best and throwing the rest out and toyota believes in cultivating the best. But both succeed. "

About the Author
Author Jack Welch

Jack Welch began his career with the General Electric Company in 1960, and in 1981 he became the company’s eighth chairman and CEO. During his tenure, GE’s market capitalization increased by $400 billion, making it the world’s most valuable corporation. In 1999 Fortune named him the “manager of the century,” and the Financial Times recently named him one of the three most admired business leaders in the world today. Upon retiring from GE in 2001, Mr. Welch published his internationally bestselling autobiography Jack: Straight from the Gut. He now teaches at MIT’s Sloan School of Management and speaks to business leaders and students around the world.
