A World of Opportunity: Global Strategies for Challenging Times

The auto industry faces some of the most complex challenges in its history. Pressures from global competition, the growing cost of commodities, the higher price of gasoline and consumer demand for more fuel efficient vehicles have sent shock waves through the entire value chain. Never has it been more crucial for suppliers, automakers and retailers to reshape their cultures and build sustainable business models. Companies that find ways to adjust, adapt and overcome the challenges can survive and thrive in these fascinating times.
