Ford Stuck at side of road
Chicago Tribune | Stuck at side of road:
Here is a mind-numbingly long article about Ford's problems.
“Ford, they say, suffers from years of short-term thinking and billions in questionable investments. While it tried to adopt the highly-efficient management strategies pioneered by Toyota, those efforts have been hobbled by a lack of firm, consistent leadership at the top and a divisive, feudalistic corporate culture that has grown up over the years.”
I'm about exhausted of reading about the problems of Ford and GM. It wears me out. I'm going to think and write more about the positive things going on with lean and my own lean work. That's what brings me joy, not beating up on Ford and GM. But, here you go, here's the link to the article.
