General Motors (GM +2.9%) CEO Dan Akerson adds some more insight (video) to his plan to cleanse long-standing "fiefdoms" from the company's corporate hierachy. Under the plan, power will shift from regional chiefs to global leaders in areas such as manufacturing, IT, and marketing. The plan will also include a new accounting system with greater transparency.

    Appears Akerson has read about Marchionne, how to structure a car company. Unfortunately he must have skipped the chapters about guts, charisma and leadership.

     

    If I were Obama (sic!), I would get Marchionne on board pronto. After all the guy owes him somewhat for getting Chrysler for next to nothing - but then did a herculean top job to turn it around.
