For a business to run continuously without failure, short term and long term goals are set and rules set aside too to be followed to achieve these goals. The business will be termed as a success when these goals are met within the fixed period. Louis Chenevert is one great man who knew well how to plan himself to achieve the set goals. Planning his work well while focusing on the long-term benefit of the company is one of the tricks he uses to make things work for him. He made decisions that he knew would have an impact on the future of the company.

The current status of the previous companies Louis has worked with proves it all. For instance, United Technology Corporation is currently one of the best in the global manufacturing market. Louis worked with UTC for less than ten years, through which he managed to raise the company to greater heights than he found it. He started working as the chief operating officer and then rose to the president before becoming the director of the Corporation. While still at UTC, Louis strategized through investing in innovation, skilled labor, and long-term goals as he knew this was his way of ensuring a constant bright future for the corporation.

Before joining UTC, Louis was working with Pratt and Whitney where he served as the vice president then later promoted to be the president. He managed to create the turbofan engine with superb features like reduced fuel consumption and reduced emission, not knowing that his future company (UTC) would come to benefit from that.

Louise was born in Montreal, Quebec. He acquired his degree in business administration in Production Management from HEC Montreal University. After studies, he secured a job with General Motors, where he worked as the general production manager and for about 14 years. While still at GM, Louis got a chance to work Pratt and Whitney, and that is when he moved from GM.

This rule of always leaving where you work in a better state than how you found it is what has made Louis great. If a company becomes successful, then definitely the people in it become successful too.
