The automotive sector has long been instructive for managers who want to understand the relationship between industry structure, organization and strategy. Its lessons started with Henry Ford and continued with Alfred Chandler in his extensive writing about his leadership of General Motors.

Today companies such as Toyota, and leaders such as Carlos Ghosn are providing new lessons. Several of our partners have in recent years worked extensively with automotive clients, both OEMs and suppliers. The experience has been invaluable to us both in terms of our understanding of the industry and our thinking about strategy in the industrial sector. Much of our thinking about complexity and the organizational mechanisms that can control it is informed by that work and experience. We continue to serve OEMs and their suppliers. Client engagements with major automotive manufacturers have resulted in innovative cost restructuring initiatives that will fund new strategies.
