This is the fifteenth podcast for the power sector corporate strategy study we will soon release as part of our Executive Program.

In an earlier podcast I discussed our bold hypotheses which involved shutting down and selling all of the international businesses.

Since that initial hypothesis developed in week 1, and after thinking about it for the last 2 weeks, we have changed our views. In terms of the number of initiatives, the majority of the international businesses will be shut down or sold. However, in terms of dollar value, the majority of international businesses will remain.

If that sounds contradictory, this podcast explains how we decided which businesses to keep and the impact it will have on the funding of the transformation study.
