    Change is the hardest and usually the last option any person, company, agency, or nation will undertake to save itself.

    Someday the sign over Redwood City will read BK Best by Government Test.

    Let’s not forget that there are a fair number of people, like yours truly, who won’t spend one penny on a GM product until it’s free of its government entanglements. Quality and price mean nothing to me. Ownership does.

    some behave as if change is death, and become self fulfilling prophecy.

    GM’s culture could have changed for the better if it had been forced into bankruptcy instead of being ‘saved’ for the sake of the parasitic UAW. Fact.

    Wait a minute, you mean the takeover by the forces of Hope and Change didn’t make the cultural changes necessary for GM’s prosperity?

    Imagine my surprise!

    Simply because you’re changing doesn’t mean you’re getting better. Death is a change, after all.

    The Cruze gets an A for effort, but ultimately disappoints. Can’t say I’m excited by any upcoming GM car, and I set a low bar-I’m looking forward to the Dodge Dart

    “it’s how we’ve always done things”… such a difficult phrase to overcome in business or in your own personal life. But, that change can happen and it has to start from the top. Moreover, the leadership has to understand the corporate culture before it can truly begin to make the change happen. I’ve just finished a book called Transforming Corporate Culture by Lisa Jackson and Gerry Schmidt, two leading change consultants. Their message is clear: understand your corporate culture and then impart change within that framework. They present a vision for concrete steps leaders at all level of an organization can take to actually see change happen. It’s amazing when it does. http://www.corporateculturepros.com
