You are a group of top managers of one of the big three carmakers. Your company has been experiencing increased competition from other carmakers whose innovations in car design and manufacturing methods have allowed them to produce cars that are higher in quality and lower in cost than yours. You have been charged with preparing a plan to change the company’s structure to allow you to compete better, and you have decided on two main changes. First you plan to reengineer the company and move from a multidivisional structure (in which each division produces its own range of cars) to one in which cross-functional product teams become responsible for developing new car models that will be sold by all the divisions.  Second you decided to implement a total quality management program to raise quality and decentralize decision-making authority to teams and make them responsible for achieving higher quality and lower costs.
