I would hate to think GM has to sink like Chrysler before the players (mgt, employees, union officials, and shareholders) recognize the need for change

Paul,

I know all the 'players' don't recognize this need, and probably never will, however there are more every day. The progress (in productivity, quality, vehicle design, speed, etc.) that GM has made since the 1998 strike (speaking for North America only) could not have happened at the rate it has without major 'player' recognition for the need to change.

There are many intelligent people in all facets of GM. Although the press focus seems to be more on problems than on strengths, I wouldn't recommend underestimating today's GM.
