Assignment #5 GE’s Work-Out The type of change by GE where employees are encouraged to make improvements to the way things are currently done appears to be an example of Adaptation. The reason is that companies react to changes in the company that need to be made and make incremental changes after the suggestion has been adopted. However, GE encouraging mangers to be able to identify problems and make speedy decisions and actions appears to be an example of fine tuning. The reason for this is that the action is anticipatory, and managers are encouraged to make incremental changes. Revolutionary changes where managers completely depart from the company’s ideology aren’t encouraged. The process should work, since companies need to be able to adapt to the situation depending on the circumstances. If the company isn’t able to address its issue than they will fall down in productivity, and may risks bankruptcy. Other companies will get ahead of them, and gain an advantage in the sector that GE is competing with.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
