Quote of the day, June 13 2011 — Accountants don’t do a good job running the world

‘I maintain that without a passionate focus on great products from the top of the company on down, the “low cost” part will be assured but the “high revenue” part won’t happen, just as it didn’t at GM for so many years.’

– Bob Lutz, Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, excerpted in “Japan’s Advantage and How The Cadillac Lost Its Shine”, Wall Street Journal, June 13 2011

    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
