The second extra credit option is to answer questions based on a podcast from the show “This American Life”. The podcast is about the GM and Toyota partnership to make cars at the NUMMI car plant.It covers many topics related to continuous improvement, quality, and management-employee relationships. The podcast is available for free on YouTube ( can be purchased from iTunes for a small charge.Note: There is an issue with the audio in the YouTube videothough. It is missing the very last part of the podcast and for some reason starts again from the beginningof the show about halfway through. While the YouTube video shows the length as almost two hours, you only need to listen to the first 61 minutes.There are no issues with the iTunes podcast. Option 2 Specific Requirements•The paper must include name, assignment, section, and date. •Each question must be numbered so I can see which ones have been answered.Questions:1.Give what you think was the biggest reason for the animosity between GM management and the workers/union at the Fremont plant.2.Whatdo you see as the biggest reason why the Fremont plant had such bad quality and employee performance issues? 3.Why were the Fremont workers able to get away with such poor performance for so long?
4.Give threeways the production line was different in Japan from how cars were manufactured at GM Fremont? 5.What do you see as thetwobiggest reasonswhy the (almost) same workers who were the worst of all GM plants, then became the best of all GM plants? 6.Based on the podcast, why couldn’t GM get the same high levels of quality in their other plants, and what do you see as the biggest reason why it took so long for the quality initiatives at NUMMI to be implemented at other GM plants?You must number each answer so it is clear you have answered allof the questions. The length requirement is 500 words, which is about 80 words per question. Some questions may take more to answer, so youcan be shorter on some and longer on others. However, the minimum for any single question is 50 words. The grading rubric assumes a minimum acceptable standard. If the paper is lacking significantly in length, quality, etc. it may result in zero points.
