When General Motors emerged from bankruptcy protection it was split into two units. Now, ‘Old GM’ has taken responsibility for most of the company debt, leaving ‘New GM’ – which is responsible for maintaining core production operations - to use its improving cash liquidity to implement a series of initiatives that will ultimately see the largely autonomous regional divisions brought together under a leaner management hierarchy.

Supplying GM reviews what changes have been made throughout the company in order to lay a foundation for this plan-in-progress, primarily from the perspective of how the company is aiming to reposition itself from a global company split into regions, to a global company building global products. This coverage includes how production strategies are being put in place to maximise both local and global efficiencies, and how those facilities will fit into the new global structure. Additionally, the report details how GM will look to increase the role of a centralized purchasing office as it looks to put in place an increased number of global supply contracts in order to fully leverage the OEM’s global buying power.

Further sections of the Supplying GM report cover such areas as the products, systems and materials General Motors is developing at a series of new technology centres around the world, the largest of which is based in China – now the carmaker’s largest single market. The research details how this push for new technology will be of vital importance to GM as it attempts to win and maintain market share around the world, while the company ‘learns’ how to quickly incorporate and deliver these new technologies to eager customers.

General Motors is a company in transition. Supplying GM outlines and analyzes the changes and  strategies being defined and implemented across the company as it looks to redefine itself in terms of  efficiency, quality and cost, and what this will mean for GM as it looks to the future.
