"I'm metrics based," says Jamie Miller, formerly GE's controller and chief accounting officer. "I start with the outcome--increasing efficiency, lowering scrap and cost--and then execute toward that."

Internally, she put tablets in the hands of field workers and is implementing Predix, a software platform that gets the entire company, even those tireless sensors, speaking a common language.
