In one of the most concerted efforts to fast-forward a product in its history, GM rolled out the new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups in early November -- a full 13 weeks ahead of schedule.
...
The decision to fast-track the pickup was a radical move for a company known for its regimented, risk-averse culture.
...
Because the pickup push was ordered directly by the powerful North American Strategy Board headed by Wagoner and Lutz, the waters parted whenever the pickup needed to clear another checkpoint.
