The current CEO is in over his head. You don't bring in a furniture salesman to run a multinational car company.
Interestingly, I heard this guy in an NPR interview today.
He didn't sound like an idiot but rather a calm and thoughtful man with a solid grasp of Ford's potential problems who may well be as capable as anyone else of leading Ford through its current travails.
We all have what we think were hero CEOs, but they had their flaws and their blind spots as well.
Would be easy to name many names from many companies.
