Winners of Any Size Can't – and Don't – Ever Rest

Here at Private Briefing, we love companies that blow up the adage "you can't teach an old dog new tricks."

You folks know the high regard I have for General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE). The conglomerate is one of the most recognized mega-brands from over the years. I love that GE is aware that resting on past laurels risks becoming irrelevant and unprofitable in rapid fashion.

GE continues to walk - perhaps speed-walk - the walk with its deepening moves toward tech. I recently wrote you about its commitment to the "Super Internet" (aka, the "Internet of Everything" or the "Industrial Internet"). In another message, I outlined its ambitious plan to recruit 5,000 women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) positions over the next few years.

And I'm coming back again to GE today in order to underscore just how aggressive it is its push toward tech - in this case, automated processes and virtually paperless operations.
