Description:

This paper presents a case study that analyzes the global strategic management of the Ford Motor Company. It looks at challenges that Ford may face in the near future and examines a long-term product plan for the company. The paper also discusses a number of potential ethical and legal dilemmas that Ford may encounter in future and how these should be responded to.

From the Paper:

"When faced with ethical dilemmas, Ford executives should respond in the most honest and truthful manner, even at the expense of short term gain. A small loss in profit would be nothing compared to federal charges being filed due to tax evasion, falsified accounting, etc. The more likely situation that Ford executives will be faced with is: when will we decide to go completely green? The companies that go completely green in the near future will likely suffer a short term loss, mainly due to the massive costs associated with switching technology from oil dependency. However, those companies that take the faithful first leap will likely be rewarded in the long term from increased profits, a larger market, and more experience with the direction that the world is heading. If Ford desires to be at the forefront of the automobile industry, it is clear that a dedicated focus on renewable and clean fuel sources would be the most beneficial decision."
