Tough Critique of Daimler Mgt
From this week's autoextremist :
3 thumbs down:
DaimlerChrysler. Let's see, they backed off acquiring any more of Mitsubishi, and now they're selling off their stake in Hyundai. So what's left of Juergen Schrempp's global vision for DCX now? Oh, yes - the car business. That old thing. The only problem is that while the Chrysler Group is hanging on, hoping that their new products generate serious momentum, Mercedes-Benz is in denial about their current position in the market. M-B is still operating with the attitude that the rest of the automotive world revolves around them. It's really hard to concentrate on the "blocking and tackling" basics of the car business - when the whole DCX "system" is at odds with the reality of the world auto business right now.
