On Management Take 2: GM does the shuffle

Today’s announcement of new roles for a series of senior leadership personnel at GM is the first view of what Ed W had in mind when he said – we need younger managers in place. He is getting some of that (Bob Lutz is still around) and we are excited to see Mark Reuss and Steve Girsky getting bigger roles. They both get it.

Now the key question is how does this translate deeper down into the organization and culture? Will Mark be able to change the insular environment? Will the people he inherit all of a sudden make bolder recommendations? Will he and the rest of GM finally realize that they will not return to being the dominant player and that that is okay?

I hope so. Despite sounding bearish on GM most of the time, I, like everyone else in the industry want them to get better.
