The current CEO of Volkswagen Herbert Dis is in a friendly relationship with Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and at one point even wanted to entrust his German counterpart under the leadership of the American manufacturer of electric vehicles. At a recent conference, Musk explained why his Tesla leadership style is so flexible.
As Electrek explains, during the outgoing week Volkswagen organized a conference in Austria for the heads of the group at various levels, led by Herbert Dis himself, and the event program included an impromptu phone call with Elon Musk. It is not for nothing that the German car giant has gathered executives in one place – they should have been inspired by the extent of the changes that await concern in the near future during the transition to electric traction.
According to Disa, «“Volkswagen has done a lot of good things in the past, it is very strong in the old world, but it does not guarantee anything in the new world.”… the car concern head wants the decisions to be made faster, there was less bureaucracy and more responsibility. Elon Musk was asked during the video conference about the reasons for Tesla’s more flexible management policy. As the American billionaire explained, it’s all about management style: “I am an engineer first and foremost, and apart from cars, I am fascinated by the processes of production, logistics and supply.”.
In turn, Herbert Dis cited as an example Tesla’s ability to quickly bend the chips of alternative suppliers in the face of a shortage of semiconductor components – thanks to the company’s programmers’ ability to reprocess software in just two to three weeks. The head of Volkswagen and his colleagues also promised to visit the Tesla plant near Berlin in the near future.
