Boeing Attempts A U Turn At High Speed

672 words - 3 pages

Boeing, a well know name in the airplane industry and the world’s largest aerospace company, was beginning to lose its share of the market in 1997 when Philip M. Condit was elected Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company (Biographies). His plan was to use cutting-edge technology to expand the range of products and services offered, taking Boeing to the next level in the business world (Parker).The new focus of the company was to create three key operating units.

Taking ownership of units, allows each to see the need to work for the greater good and growth of the organization, not just for their own personal gain.It will then be up to Condit to follow through on his plans by supporting and encouraging his teams to create and apply new ideas for innovation and productivity. His 35 plus years in Boeing operations and management as well as his extensive educational background in engineering will provide his employees with a vast working knowledge of the company (Biographies).

Condit will need to utilize his charismatic mannerisms to present himself as a company visionary with an outlook of corporate growth; which, in turn, will generate employee enthusiasm to buy into the new path he has planned for Boeing.Condit’s attempt to...
