Questions for GM

Why does GM keep losing market share to Toyota? Why did GM never learn from NUMMI, the joint venture with Toyota that transformed the worst factory in the system to the best? Why did GM not support universal access to health care? Why was GM late with hybrids?

Firing Wagoner is a strong signal that under his leadership GM performed poorly. But replacing him with someone whose talent is controlling costs won't cut it. The new CEO should be able to answer these questions and chart an innovative course that guarantees that questions like these won't be asked in the future.
