I used to work for Steve. He was VP of Global Product Planning before he was head of GM Canada.

“We agree to disagree and we move on,” de Nysschen told Bloomberg. “There wasn’t a fight. Let’s call it philosophical differences.”
The abrupt change, according to two people familiar with the decision, was a result of de Nysschen’s reluctance to accelerate product and operating plans and capitalize on current U.S. market conditions, where industry sales remain healthy. GM executives, the sources said, acknowledge that it takes time to rebuild a brand but there needs to be more commitment to the here and now, rather than the future.
Hmm...

Sounds like JDN might have been concentrating on the rumored flagship cars like Escala and sports car too much instead of pushing current programs like XT4/XT6 forward.

I read it as someone wants to focus on TODAY and capitalize. Yes speed up and roll out product. JDN did not want to give-in at the risk of not making the best product he could. He wanted to stay focused on making sure everything was right before he released something. Not roll out something because marketing said it is time if he knows there are kinks to work out. Hard commodity to find in someone today.

I didn't see it that way at all. GM's corporate culture is about as far from Tesla's (which is basically what you described) as possible. Plus, nothing that I've ever heard of Barra (whose background is in engineering, not marketing) would make me think that she'd want to move the company as a whole, or Cadillac in particular, in that direction.



The way I interpret the blurb Fen posted is that GM wants more crossovers (the thing thats 'in' today) out of Cadillac while Johan wants to build more prestige for the brand (whose payoff is in the future). Presumably he wanted to do that through low volume halo vehicles, like a flagship sedan and/or a sports car.

But there was a secondary thing in there too, about markets. The US market was pointed out as not being capitalized on. Which potentially means that Johan was instead putting too much effort into growing things internationally (likely China).
