Globalization Requires Global Teamwork

  • Designing, building and selling globally, requires daily collaboration of

  • designers, product and manufacturing engineers, buyers, logistics managers, …

  • From Different Countries, Languages, Cultures and Time Zones

  • With Joint Ventures

  • With Suppliers


This challenge is not unique to gm

This Challenge is not Unique to GM

To effectively compete, global resources must be leveraged

and must effectively work together – the best TEAM will win

Culture

Language

Time Zones

  • How can technology aid collaborationbetween personnel globally to make better and faster decisions that will reduce the vehicle development time and deliver a higher quality product?


How do we solve this problem

How Do We Solve This Problem?

  • Today's real time communication tools like IM, video chat, web conferencing, ... help support discussion

    • But, they all require all participants to speak the same language, be available at the same time and most times require use of the same tools.

    • Current capabilities today are not a substitute for travel but global travel is inefficient and expensive.

  • What are the alternatives?

    • Are there technologies (like Google Talk does for IM) that can help transcend language barriers – through real time translation services?

    • What role can real-time video play and what can be done to reduce the impact of latency and bandwidth consumption? Can this eliminate some component of travel.

    • What technologies, tools and processes can be used to enable rich asynchronous communication to address time differences?
