In response to a previous blog that was focused on Henry Ford and his online presence, I would have to say that overall the blog does well to briefly lay out what an important figure Henry Ford was as it mentions the changes he made in business through the development of the assembly line, the fact his company manage to make cars that were not just available for the elite but for the working class average American. The blog also does well to briefly outline how Henry Ford is an example of a man who accomplished the American Dream and mentions the work Ford did in creating equality in America.
I do think though that ultimately the blog falls short of accomplishing the goal of presenting Ford as a truly iconic person as I don’t think it details enough of the impact he had on the world and the legacy that he left. I think that it needs to emphasize the huge impact he had on the word of business, his establishment of the assembly line is acknowledged but I would like to see a bit more on how important a creation this was and how it truly revolutionized the way products are made. Also the work he did not just for business but also for workers as he established things such as the five day working week. His way of running a business which coined the phrase Fordism created the mould for modern day business and I think this legacy could have been addressed further. I think the blog just needed to develop further its ideas of showing Ford’s impact on the world which was and still is massive. I think that as a brief overlay of Henry Ford the blog achieves its aims but I would like to see a bit more content that justifies Ford being called an icon and why personally the author thinks that.
