GE Digital is paving the way for digital transformation, which is in the process of establishing a new era for industry. The industrial companies that don’t evolve will continue to lose in productivity and become increasingly disconnected from customers.
The transformation to digital industrial is a journey to a world where physical operations intersect with physical science, data, and advanced analytics.
GE can attest to the importance of this transformation, as we’ve already experienced significant increases in productivity, shortened manufacturing cycles, and reduced machine downtime. And yet, we have only just begun to unleash the productivity gains from our digital transformation journey.
That said, we’ve already learned some powerful lessons. The first is that we must commit to changing GE’s business models to be driven by the business outcomes we aim to achieve. Second, speed is everything – including the speed at which we learn, the speed at which we execute, and the speed at which we pivot. To that end, we have prioritized speed and agility in our people, in our processes, and in the tools we use to iterate with our customers and partners. Third, we must be all in. That is, we can’t succeed by creating speed and agility in a vacuum – our transformation roadmap must bring the entirety of GE into the digital world.
