New CEO an outsider?

GM board looks to the outside for replacement CEO

An ethical question that I have always wondered is how is it morally right to make someone a CEO that has no previous dealings with the company? I can understand if the circumstances of large executive fraud that they look elsewhere but otherwise it does seem sufficient. People poor their lives into the company rising from their entry position to upper management and when they believe that it is their turn they are mistaken. The outsiders do not know the organizational culture of the company, the people who work for it personally, or how day-to-day operations work. They have shown no previous dedication to the firm and are all of a sudden at the highest most powerful position in the entire company. Any comments on this topic?

    I have to agree, I don’t think is a good idea of let the company to be run by outsider. Because is true they might know how to run a company, but every company is different. Many employees have work all their live hard in the same location to let someone from the outside take all the credit with no experience what so ever.

    I disagree with this because i feel that a new person that does not know anything about the company could really bring in innovative idea’s. I think what is morally incorrect is it usually goes to someone that has been in the job for many years. So these people will be more annoyed at the decision so it will be better if the company picks a worker who is from company because this will keep peace within the workers.
