New President of Harley Davidson


Recommended Posts

Now some of the doubting of Indian was that the Stev(ph)es had no motorycle background.....now looks like Harley is placing sound business decisions over being brought up in motorcycle culture or within their own ranks. 21 years at Johnston Controls and now leading Harley.... Said it was because HD needed to restructure and bring in sound business sense to weather the economy.

Some say a fresh approach,or an outside set of eyes can be needed when the current business model is in need of a tune up.

:I-Agree[1]: FoMoCo brought LaLallie(spell check) in from the air lines to replace "Bill the third" best thing they could have done IMO.....

Depends on how big the organization is. When ya get to the Fortune 500 types, there are so many levels between people who know the product and the money guy at the top anybody can be the CEO, and these knuckleheads prove that everyday. CEO's are like a political appointment. A good leader is going to delegate the decisions at the level it needs to be made, or to the experts in thier field. Unfortunately at those levels egos are so big they can't do it.

I'm thinking a video of Charger riding a sailboard might just get us that $10,000 check on AFV ;)

Scab labor is the only way to go. It will get done. But johnson control is union around here or parts of it. When we work with johnson control around here they are nothing but a pain in the ass. Alway looking for something,they don't know what but just looking . Just to make the job go longer and cost more.

my job does not have a union and yes I am in Right to work state. In my opinion the UAW is what killed the automakers.....along with the pussified CEOs that agreed to the bullshit demands of the UAW.

 

Best thing to happen is bankruptcy and reorganize without UAW or with a new contract that is more reasonable...
