GM’s Parma Plant Received $60 million in new investment

As many of you read in our first book about Bob Lintz and the transformational change he led at GM’s Parma Stamping Plant in the ’80s and ’90s near Cleveland, Ohio, I thought you’d be interested in some recent news about Parma, in which GM will be invested $60 million dollars as part of the plant’s most recent modernization.

This is truly a lasting legacy that Bob left, as the plant continues to improve and be one of the world’s very best stamping plants years AFTER Bob retired.  For you Good To Great and Built to Last fans, Parma is a compelling example of a Level 5 Leader who built a Flywheel that continues to demonstrate significant bottom-line results for both GM and its employees who work at Parma.

Karen and I be continuing our profile of Bob and discussing what he has learned as a result of his inspiring leadership efforts in our forthcoming sequel, Becoming a Trustworthy Leader:  Psychology and Practice, due out later this by Routledge Press.
