Henry Ford believed “a business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.” There is an inherent responsibility and duty, as a business owner, to leave a positive impact within society. Henry Ford wasn’t in the business of making money - he was in the business of people and service. His lifelong dedication to technology and ability to think outside of the box, set the foundation for Ford to become one of the most successful organizations in the world. From the release of the model T in 1908 to the newly designed vehicles of modern day, Ford Motor Company is continuing to evolve and expand their product line to incorporate new technologies within the automotive industry. The 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Ford Taurus and Ford Flex are great examples of this evolutionary process.
