  1. Under Welch's leadership, General Electric in the late 1990s also adopted "six sigma," a quality control and improvement initiative pioneered by Motorola, Inc.
  2. In 1915 the first turbine-propelled battleship sailed forth, and within a few years, all of the Navy's large ships were equipped with electric power.
  3. Noting changes in transportation with growing use of the automobile and the newly constructed Erie Boulevard and Western Gateway Bridge, a new sign was needed to face this new entry way to the Schenectady site. The head of the research division was a professor from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
  4. It also focuses on automation and controls. Under Welch's leadership, General Electric in the late 1990s also adopted "six sigma," a quality control and improvement initiative pioneered by Motorola, Inc.
  5. When this reorganization was complete, General Electric made what was at the time the largest corporate purchase ever.
