Fighting Words from GM


Interesting that Bob Lutz, GM's vice chairman, is fighting back. "We are removing the gloves at G.M and are going to be much more aggressive about telling our side of the story. It's time to strike back." (The New York Times, April 13, 2006). Those are fighting words.

Lutz mentions that GM has reached an inflection point. I think that he is not only speaking for his company but for companies in general. Over the past two years, it has become increasingly clear that companies are not rolling over when they think they are right and believe that their point of view is not being heard. Wal-Mart comes to mind after trying hard to keep a low profile and not ruffle any feathers. McDonald's is working on its game plan to counter the new movie "Fast Food Nation" which criticizes the food giant.

There is definitely change in the wind.
