This really makes great sense. It is obvious that with a business as usual approach GM is on a trajectory for financial oblivion. A high risk roll of the dice is called for. And looking into the abyss does help to concentrate the minds of the engineers. With luck this strategy can lead GM back to its former greatness.

They need to spin it off into an autonomous organization, like IBM did with their PC division when they entered the business. Electric cars are a disruptive technology (as defined by Clayton Christianson in "The Innovator's Dilemma") and that's the best model for a big company like GM to embrace it. The article doesn't say if this is going to be a division in GM or more autonomous, but I hope it's the latter.

For most of your working life, you will be stuck inside that four-sided cube called your working cubicle. Many people have actually gone crazy being stuck in this place for a good number of years. You cannot blame them anyway, as their cubicle is nothing more than a piece of metal.

Add some good vibration to your office cubicle! You can actually make it as homey as your own home!

Office Supplies are pretty boring, but what about organization, productivity, office humor and annoying your coworkers? http://blog.officenmore.com

That's great that they have made a new organization for this, other companies should do this as well!

GM seems to be a step above other car manufacturers in terms of their hybrid and electric department, so seems to be a good step for them.

Air Purifier

I hope this wasn't just for them as well, probably was since it's a business, but one can HOPE that a company just wants to do good things for the world!

The new President will have to embrace this exact plan if the United States is to avoid economic catastrophe.
