Boeing’s Predictable Fall

Boeing’s fall was predictable not because it’s Boeing, but because the decisions that got it here would land any company in the same place. Profit-first decisions invariably destroy profits in the long-run, due to short-sighted leadership. Decisions that last come from lasting values.

I highly recommend this article if you want an engaging overview of all that’s happened at Boeing.

“Thanks to a string of unforced errors and botched responses, Boeing, like other corporate giants from the 20th century, has devolved from the epitome of world-beating quality to a symbol of managerial fecklessness, focused on short-term profits at the expense of the company’s long-term sustainability. Boeing cut corners in production, pushed out experienced workers to save money, and poured money into boosting the stock price instead of investing in its products.”
