Abstract:

Getting talented engineers and scientists to take appropriate risks is one of the keys to building a more innovative organization. Boeing has worked to accomplish this over the past nine years by emphasizing educational opportunities, recognition programs, challenging work assignments, sharing the lessons learned, and communication that is "frequent, open and honest." Organizationally, Boeing's Phantom Works has been its catalyst for innovation across the company, providing technology to the business units and learning from them at the same time. One of the many learnings is that good ideas are found mostly outside the organization; hence, Boeing has established listening posts and partnerships around the world. But above all, it is leadership that leads the way to business success.
