The automobile industry, once hailed as the mother of all industries is something that few people can choose to overlook in a global scan.As I read this, I just can’t refrain from referring to Seth Godin note on Ford. While the consolidation Buzz was always there for several years, I do read about and see the aggressive expansion plans of Toyota, Hyundai, Honda and the likes around the world. These people besides competing with Detroit are investing heavily in emerging markets where the US carmakers are not lagging far behind. No comong to Seth, he writes,
A couple of decades ago, Ford had everything. Cash, brand, distribution, political influence, a trained workforce...
Lovely words from Seth – what’s true for Ford is true for several corporates around the world across industries – so when he says Monday, when you sit down with your organization to plan the next decade, perhaps you could ask, "what would the top people at Ford do?" and then do precisely the opposite, it carries lot of sense.
