Is it essential for an engineer and not a finance man to be head of VW?
I think so, yes. I find it is a great thing that Dr. Piech listens to technical topics rather than to other topics.
But technicians tend to tell everyone they would have done things differently, and better.
I have worked with Dr. Piech now for more than 20 years. I know we think along similar lines. He is a man of quick, clear decisions. Naturally we tend to change and improve things until the last minute, to the annoyance of our friends from production. But you have to realize there is a point when you have to stop making changes.
