From Left to Right: Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne, Ford CEO Alan Mulally and GM CEO Fritz Henderson
Chrysler: CEO Bob Nardelli is going soon, and former Ford consultant Robert Kidder is stepping in as chairman. If Chrysler emerges from bankruptcy, Fiat will own at least 35% of the new company and Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne will run it. He will have to do a lot with a little; Chrysler's white-collar ranks have been decimated by layoffs.
Grade: D

Ford: CEO Alan Mulally has pulled together a stable, close-knit team that has experienced little turnover. He could use a deeper bench should anybody depart.
Grade: B

General Motors: CEO Fritz Henderson took over from Rick Wagoner without skipping a beat and has accelerated GM's restructuring. Still to come: A thinning of GM's executive ranks and an overhaul of its board of directors.
Grade: C

NEXT: Labor relations
