Conduct Only Corporate America Could Appreciate

There's little argument that the current CEO of Porsche, Wendelin Wiedeking, brought painful culture change that led the auto manufacturer to become the most profitable in the world. Those profits have allowed Porsche to gain a major share in the Volkswagen Auto Group (which includes Audi, Lamborghini, Bugatti, and others) and may soon lead to a takeover. While I can't stand Porsche's current obsession with SUVs and 4-door sedans, it's clear that Wiedeking is among the best automotive CEOs in the world.

So it should come as no surprise that the current CEO of Volkswagen, Ferdinand Piech, wants Weidekeing out. It's that lovely? I can't read German, so I'll miss out on how Piech tries to justify that one to the board.
