Mulally is worth every penny he's paid. He took the basket case of the domestic industry and made it a foward thinking hungry company. He is a true leader with high standards and who is executing a plan with precision. Plus, he's actually made owning a Ford cool. Many of us have had good experiences with Fords over the decades, but many people were burned. Now Fords are at or near the top of every class as far as standard setters. Five years ago the only class setter was the F-series.
I like that there are still new Fords in the pipeline that are going to continue this trend - and what matters most, Ford has to be able to handle success - for too long they've reached heights of success and then lost the edge. This can't happen again. Ford must remain lean, hungry, and out to build the best.
