Client Story: GE
GE Capital (GEC) is a global financial services organization including equipment leasing, insurance and reinsurance, mortgage, credit cards, and various specialty businesses.
Though a successful and growing unit of GE, the Capital organization was challenged by then-Chairman Jack Welch in 1996 to adopt Six Sigma as a core leadership and improvement strategy. The GEC vision—Completely Satisfy Customer Needs Profitably—targeted organic growth while reducing costs, eliminating defects, building greater customer focus and driving “boundary-less” behavior.

Billions of dollars documented in savings and new revenue, targeting operations, sales, financial management and acquisition integration. GEC’s effort became a model for Six Sigma successes in hundreds of companies worldwide.
