Ford Organization DesignGood news for Ford Motor Company this week as it earned a third-quarter profit of almost $1 billion and expects to be “solidly profitable” in 2011 in its North American business.? Has Ford turned the financial corner?

I was reminded last week at the Global Organization Design Society’s International Conference that Ford Motor Company worked with Elliott Jaques and The Levinson Institute in the areas of requisite organization design and talent assessment years back.

Was a work-levels, science-based approach to organization design and talent assessment a contributor to Ford’s sole survivor status amongst the big three?
