Driverless Cars, Analytics and Tough Standards for 21st Century Innovation

In 1986, commenting on the internal problems plaguing his new parent company General Motors, Ross Perot took aim at the automaker’s entrenched culture and plodding delivery processes. At the time a new car took five years to design. “Heck, we won World War Two in four years,” he remarked to The Wall Street Journal. “This isn’t a moon shot, it’s just a car.”
