Comments on: GM blog lifts hood on power struggle over Opel http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/07/31/gm-blog-lifts-hood-on-power-struggle-over-opel/ Now raising intellectual capital Sun, 08 Nov 2015 08:31:30 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Karin Kirchner http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/07/31/gm-blog-lifts-hood-on-power-struggle-over-opel/comment-page-1/#comment-1754 Thu, 06 Aug 2009 14:56:21 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/?p=1937#comment-1754 I wanted to clarify what Drivingconversations.com is because Mr. Taylor made it sound like it was an internal website (accessible for the public):

Drivingconversations.com is a corporate / executive blog, an effective way of getting our perspective across (rather than doing many one-on-one interviews) while driving a more robust conversation with the many audiences that have an interest in GM…our employees, dealers, suppliers, media and other interested parties who closely follow our business here in Europe and around the world. It is 100% public.

I do not understand the reason of the German Government to support oonly the “Magna solution”.

GM’s one company policy means that Ruesselsheim tech center pretty much mirrors the Warren tech center. In many ways due to the fact that Germany dealt with Europe with it’s various laws cultures and languages, in some respects Ruesselsheim tech center has more potential in a global environment than it’s sister in Warren.
I do feel that it is in the interest of the potential buyer to win the hearts and minds of it’s future employees.
Initially and into the future the new GM will still share common platforms and technology with what is effectively it’s new partner.
This is probably why they found that the rejected offer from Shanghai so interesting. GM operations in Asia are it’s growth market.
