Womack’s WSJ Piece


WSJ.com – Why Toyota Won

I still haven't found a free version, but here's a site with slightly more detail.

Here is piece written by Jim Womack, in a similar vein to last week's email newsletter.

His main bullet points:

  • GM and Ford can't design vehicles that Americans want to pay “Toyota money” for.
  • GM and Ford are clueless as to how to work with their suppliers.
  • GM and Ford have miasmic management cultures.
  • GM and Ford cling to their wide range of brands
  • GM and Ford still treat customers as strangers engaged in one-time transactions.
