Henry Ford’s take on a test drive

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Some see a project’s fruition as the end.

Not leaders.

The Model T Ford, introduced in 1908, boasted quite a few innovations over the eight cars that preceded it, including features that lowered cost, increased reliability and dealt with bad roads.

At the same time, the Model T was the first ordinary production car with steering on the left. As roads improved, it became more important for drivers to see oncoming traffic than steep roadside drop-offs.

You might consider this a culmination.

Not Henry Ford.

When the first Model T rolled into the street, he had an employee drive him all over town.

Grinning from ear to ear, he declared, “Well, I guess we’ve got started.”
