Today's automotive column by John R. White is an all out attack on GM management. His basic claim is that GM has too many division, too many managers, too few sales and too little market share. So what's new or interesting about this?Well he has a proposal:1. Chevy has failed as the entry level car division. Give Prizm and Cavalier to Saturn and anything truckish to GMC. Fire all of the management and close the division.2. Saturn is the new entry level division with their current line plus Prizm(Toyota) and Cavalier. Loose all ideas of moving Saturn up into mid-size.3. Pontiac becomes the performance division with Firebird. Hmm, wonder what happens to Corvette and Camaro?4. Buick, Cadillac and Olds merge into one division. He suggests calling Aurora. Fire many more managers.5. Let each division develop its own cars. Give up on the idea of putting different glitter on the same shell for "market image".6. Jack Smith quits and joins Roger in the hall of shame.7. GM finally realized that market share _does_ count.Comments? Personally, I only own GM as part of the Fool 4, so it doesn't much matter to me. Especially since it's already done the best of my Fool 4 holdings, even without the Raytheon shares.
