Management and leadership have been used by people for years and the two words do not have the same meaning and within the structure of an organization both plays a different role. In an organization some management teams lack leadership, but successful management teams have great leadership.

Boeing Leadership and Management

...Organizing Paper Boeing is the largest manufacturer of commercial and military airplanes, is the world’s leading aerospace company, and has a long tradition of leadership and innovation in the aerospace industry.   Boeing is an international company headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, and employs more than 158,000 employees worldwide.   The company’s corporate structure consists of the Boeing Commercial Airplanes and Boeing Defense, Space, and Security Divisions (Boeing, 2010).   In the early 2000s Boeing struggled and was surpassed by Airbus in annual airline sales.   Through the organizing function of management, Boeing is once again the leader in the aerospace industry, continues to build a competitive advantage, and is more flexible, innovative, efficient, and responsive to its customers.   The organizing function of management follows the planning function and requires management to develop and organizational structure, assemble and coordinate the human, financial, physical, informational, technological, and other resources needed to achieve the organizations goals.   To be effective, managers need to use new forms of organizing and possibly view people as the most valuable resource.   Companies will departmentalize an organization during this function of management.   Examples of departmentalizing an organization include organizing by function, product, geography, or customer.   Although the organizing function of management consists of assembling and allocating the...

Management Planning - Boeing

...Management Planning – Boeing Boeing is the world’s leading aerospace company and the largest manufacture of commercial jetliners and military aircraft combined (Boeing, 1995-2010). To maintain their success of the industry’s leader, one must look at the function of management planning along with the organizations levels of planning and how they are aligned to help the company maintain the leading position within the aerospace industry. First we must look at the function and focus of management within the organization. According to Splinder (2008), “the management model used to direct the company’s planning focus is simple but an effective method for planning, acting, analyzing, and reinforcing methods that produce results. These are driven by Boeings aptitude to encourage growth and leadership from within the organization.” Boeing’s management established goals and objectives focused on financial performance, quality, customer satisfaction and growth, and growth in productivity (Splinder, 2008). The company would need to deliver results with performance and stock prices and hold employees accountable to achieve their goals and objectives. The company would also need to consider the impact legal issues, ethics, and corporate social responsibility would have on their success in achieving their plan. In 1996 as the company was merging with McDonnell Douglas Corporation, the company would go through a legal issue and experience the impact this issue would have on......

...WHAT CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES DID BOEING FACE IN THE LATE 1990s? Boeing wanted to save billions of dollars and reduce developmental time which led them to lose their market share to Airbus. In hindsight Boeing should have reduced airfare and focused more on innovation landing them a head of their competitors. Instead it cost them billions, put them three years behind schedule and allowed Airbus to succeed. Seeing their mistakes, Boeing turned it around by creating an aircraft that would add value to the consumer and generate profits for the company. Boeing took the opportunity to research composite materials to improve passenger cabin comforts and an overall flying experience compared to the aluminium they had been using previously. Then Boeing wanted to add value to the consumer. Using the new composite materials and upgrading the electrical system to lithium-ion batteries fuel surcharges were reduced and Boeing was able to pass along the savings to the consumers. The increased durability of the aircraft also led to reduced maintenance costs therefore reducing the replacements necessary and in turn having cost saving effects for Boeing and the consumer. Consumers were happy and stock prices increased. Although things appeared to be going wonderfully, there was a huge concern with overheating batteries and it needed to be rectified as soon as possible. Because the batteries were outsourced, there should hae been support integrated ito the design plan for......

...THE BOEING 7E7 Teaching Note Synopsis and Objectives In 2003, the Boeing Company announced plans to build a new “super-efficient” commercial jet called the “7E7” or “Dreamliner.” This was a “bet the farm” gamble by Boeing, similar in magnitude to its earlier introductions of the 747 and 777 airliners. The technological superiority of the new airframe, as well as the fact that it would penetrate a rapidly growing market segment, were arguments for approval of the project. On the other hand, the current market for commercial airplanes was depressed because of terrorism risks, war, and SARS, a contagious illness that resulted in global travel warnings. Boeing’s board of directors would need to weigh those considerations before granting final approval to proceed with the project. The task for students is to evaluate the 7E7 project against a financial standard, the investors’ required returns. The case gives internal rates of return (IRR) for the 7E7 project under base-case and alternative forecasts. The students must estimate a weighted-average cost of capital (WACC) for Boeing’s commercial-aircraft business segment in order to evaluate the IRRs. As a result of that analysis, the students identify the key value drivers and distinguish, on a qualitative basis, the key gambles that Boeing is making. The general objective of this case is to exercise students’ skills in estimating a weighted-average cost of capital and cost of equity. The need for......

...Case Summary The Boeing 767: From Concept to Production (A) By: Runit Marda (115) The case deals about the issue faced by Dean Thorton, Vice president – General Manager of the Boeing 767 program. The company had lobbied for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for permission to build wide body aircraft with two-person cockpits (rather than 3). Now, being granted the permission, the issue was that already 30 of the aircrafts were into various stages of production. Now, how should Thorton handle this situation? What are the options that he has? The decision had to be taken fast as the delivery dates were fast approaching. Commercial aircraft manufacturings posed various complexities as there were over 3.1 million parts to be connected by wiring over 85 miles. In 1981, three companies dominated the market: Boeing, McDonnell Douglas and Airbus. Launching a new plane was a daunting task as the manufacturing required $1.5-2 billion (which was considered to put the whole companies’ net worth on the line!!). But, any successful product was expected to lead to heavy profits and tie up the market segment for at least 15-20 years. Buyers, comprising mainly of the top 50 airliners, negotiated on price, after sales parts and service, design modifications etc. to make the task even tougher. In 1981, Boeing was the industry leader in terms of sales, having net sales of $9.2 Billion ($5.1 Billion of the aircraft manufacturing division). Boeing partnered with subcontractors on a......

Boeing and Its Management Planning

...Boeing and its Management Planning Christopher Bayles MGT/330 October 2, 2011 Bill Escue Boeing is one of the biggest aviation companies in the world with relations to a number of different countries. They produce products for commercial and government use as well as have contracts with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Management planning is one of the primary key focuses to Boeing because of the size of its massive corporation. They create some of the top high-end equipment for medical, commercial, and government use. The primary workings of the company includes goods that aid in the carrying of cargo, people, and other equipment used by the government. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) oversees the operation of aircrafts for safety concerns. Because of the safety concerns, Boeing conducts very extensive planning to operate a well-organized and successful business. Planning includes precautionary needs for the future, figuring out the departments’ objectives, activities that could be of some concern to a company, and a company's techniques they will need to accomplish a successful result (Boeing, 2010). During plans making Boeing has to consider the unpredicted problems so that there can be no possible mishaps that could happen. By setting obtainable goals in marketing, sales, mechanical markets and engineering, and updating and training employees to be more effective will ensure that the products exceed high expectations and...

Boeing Management Planning Paper

...Boeing Management Planning Paper Marcia Davis MGT/330 January 12, 2011 Sylvester Taylor Boeing Management Planning Paper Boeing like many successful companies today does not stand still or rest on their laurels of previous accomplishments. If they do they can become vulnerable to competition, technology, changes in customer preferences, and the business environment. Instead, they use their current successes to continue to build a competitive advantage for the future, constantly seeking new ways to remain flexible, innovative, efficient, and responsive to their customers. One of the most important ways of accomplishing this is to make sure that their organization structures and systems remain adaptable. A business must always be prepared to meet the complex and ever-changing challenges that managers and their organizations constantly confront. Boeing like many other companies has to use innovations in design and manufacturing as well as a focus on quality and other vital factors in the development of airplanes. Not long ago Boeing was in turmoil in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorists attacks. (Bateman & Snell 2009) Boeing suffered turnover in their executive ranks that caused uncertainty coupled with their chief rival European-based Airbus surpassing them in annual sales, Boeing decided it was time to make some changes. The Boeing Company business has many members including employees, managers, chief executive officer James McNerney, and the board...

A successful plan will include tasks and activities that are required to be completed in order to reach these set goals.
