Dave Cote Featured in Investor's Business Daily Managing for Success
January 13, 2015
Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote and his success in dramatically transforming Honeywell were featured in the January 12 Investor's Business Daily section on Managing for Success.
In the article Cote discusses his approach to addressing cultural challenges the company faced when he joined as Chairman and CEO in 2002. He explains how listening to all sides without bias helped encourage employees to speak openly, build morale and strengthen trust. Cote also cites the Honeywell Operating System (HOS) as a key driver for the company’s transformation.
"We took a 'go slow to go fast' approach to make sure we got it right," Cote said. "It's an acculturation process. It took two years. But then people buy in when they see that it works and we're really making our factories superb."
