    Study Ranks General Motors As The Worst To Deal With By Suppliers

      General Motors Is The Worst To Deal With According To Suppliers

    A new study finds that General Motors is dead last when it comes to relationships with suppliers. Automotive consultant group Planning Perspectives Inc (PPI), released the results of their annual study which asks the biggest suppliers to rate the six automakers who sell more than 85 percent of vehicles in the U.S.

    Suppliers rated GM low in many key areas such as communication skills, protection of intellectual property, unwillingness to adjust prices due to unforeseen increases, and overall trustworthiness.

    "As a result, GM is now the least preferred customer of suppliers," PPI said.

    I challenge this to wonder how much of this is based on political posturing, old habits of I scratch your back, you scratch mine and that the new GM is not wanting to play these games now.

    By no means do I imply that GM is perfect as all companies are far from that, but I suspect Reuters is not reporting the full story as there is clear holes in their story.
