The Accelerated Ford Way Forward Plan
It is not a secret anymore. The Ford Motor Company is currently suffering from financial blows. The company that used to be part of the US automotive industry’s Big Three is now on its knees and is now trying to get up and recover from the wounds that it has received.
Experts in the industry do say that this is not all about the products – from Ford vehicles like the Ford Focus and the Ford F150 pick up truck to other Ford products like Ford Granada parts and the like – that the Ford Motor Company offers. These experts suggest that the problems that Ford is currently experiencing are probably all part of a mismanagement of the company. They also do agree that the company now offers lots of products in the market which are no longer quite as hot and as popular as they used to be.
To answer such a problem, the company has now come up with what they call the Accelerated Ford Way Forward plan. This would be the company’s battle plan and it would be their way of making sure that the company does totally go downhill and become just a memory in the auto industry.
According to the Ford Motor Company’s Accelerated Ford Way Forward plan, the company is actually planning on cutting down the number of salaried workers that they have. Sources say that the company might be cutting down at least a third of the whole number of workers that the company currently employs. Plus, the company says that they would be offering what they call buyout packages to all of the company’s 75,000 hourly employees for their Ford and Automotive Components Holdings arm.
In previous years, the company says that they would be decreasing the number of employees that they have come the year 2012. However, with the crisis hanging quite seriously over the company’s head, the head honchos have now come to an agreement that the company would rather be able to finish such a giant amount of decrease of employees just by the year 2008.
