Summary
  • This timely book investigates the experiences of employees at all levels of Boeing Commercial Airplanes during a ten-year period of dramatic organizational change. As Boeing transformed itself, workers and managers contended with repeated downsizing, shifting corporate culture, new roles for women, outsourcing, mergers, lean production, and rampant technological change. Some employees welcomed these changes, others wilted, but almost none escaped the ill effects associated with the rapid and extensive workplace change
  • Drawing on a unique blend of quantitative and qualitative research, the authors consider how management strategies affected the well-being of Boeing employees, as well as their attitudes toward their jobs and their company. Boeing employees' experiences hold vital lessons for other employees, the leaders of other firms determined to thrive in today's era of inescapable and growing global competition, as well as public officials concerned about the welfare of American workers and companies. --Book Jacket
