General Motors' decline

2005/11/27

It may sound trite, but the Chinese saying "to advance with time" has a ring of truth. Just look at what has happened to General Motors, the automotive giant of the world which announced this week that it will close a dozen factories in North America and eliminate 30,000 jobs. What's wrong?

GM once made more than half of all the vehicles sold in North America. Now the company barely sells one in four vehicles. The reason? Fewer and fewer buyers are interested in buying GM's cars which are not as good as imports from Japan and Europe.

The powerhouse of the automotive industry has run out of steam and lost competitiveness because of its inability, or unwillingness, to move with time. Complacency and inertia kept the giant from moving on, and ignorant of the changes taking place around it. One example is the development of hybrid-electric cars in the 1990s when Toyota, which is now poised to displace it as the world's largest car maker, believed that the new product was the wave of the future, while GM did not see eye to eye. The result? Just take a look at the success of Toyota's Prius cars.

This is but one example. In marketing and management, examples abound that show why the company is in rapid decline and headed for bankruptcy if no bitter medicine is taken to keep it alive. Its tactic of bombarding the market with boring vehicles at discount prices simply is not the answer. It should do what it was once did best -- making cars the American consumers loved to buy. But that was a long time ago, when it was able to move with time, and often ahead of time.
