Published: May 4, 2022
There are occasions when the spinning out of a company is wholly transformational. Instead of being beholden to a corporate parent’s rigid structure, budget stringency and overarching direction, companies can take charge of their own destiny. In these instances, a newly independent vendor can revel in its own freedom, acting nimbly to create and then realise its own vision. For GE Healthcare, however, the picture is less dramatic. While it does, as Culp explained at GE’s Investor Day, present a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a 100-year-old company…and optimise it”, the company has been keen to emphasise the importance of continuity, and that transformation will occur in only specific areas where it is necessary.
