There comes a time in the evolution of every new high tech company for early leadership to move on to more new ventures. This allows a newer kind of leadership to take the helm. The kind of folks with experience leading large mature companies. I have seen this repeatedly up close and personal during my time in Silicon Valley. Tesla is doing fine as a company, it past time for Elon to move on by separating any connection with Tesla management. Knowledgable analysts like Dan Ives and Ross Gerber have more or less said so. And Elon just might be starting to think this way. He brought that guy from China over to Austin recently, and of course, there are many senior managers at Tesla that can run things just fine. I wish the Board of Directors would take action along these lines, BUT since Elon, and his brother and one of the Murdochs are on the board i am not too optimistic the board will do that smart thing.
I fully agree. Will allow him to focus more on SpaceX and Boring company. A new leader at Tesla would most likely do a few things differently:
- Reset/properly set expectations and proper timelines for FSD
- Not be obsessed with "420" and "69" (this isnt 2002, its 2022)
-Not get distracted by making and selling flamethrowers, Shorts, Liquor bottles
- Re-allocate resources currently working on Games and Fart noises, to other more critical software needs
- Make decisions that are well thought out/well vetted, and ensure that internal leadership isnt blindsided with decisions that are first announced via Twitter, but rather, vet and announce major things internally, first. (courtesy)
-Utilize a "underpromise/overdeliver" mentality
-Stay out of political/religious type public discourse, with all public statements being exclusive to Tesla as a company/business.
-Establish a Tesla public relations team that will handle/vet Tesla related tweets, announcements, etc
-Remove existing videos from Teslas website that are fraudulent/show FSD doing something that it cant actually do and ensure any future video's/statements are factual vs fraudulent
-Remain in lockstep with Teslas General Counsel/Legal team to allow them to vet promises/statements/etc, before those statements being released publically.
The above is just a start.
