American Icon: Alan Mulally and the Fight to Save Ford Motor Company
American Icon: Alan Mulally and the Fight to Save Ford Motor Company
THE INSIDE STORY OF THE EPIC TURNAROUND OF FORD MOTOR COMPANY UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF CEO ALAN MULALLY.

At the end of 2008, Ford Motor Company was just months away from running out of cash. With the auto industry careening toward ruin, Congress offered all three Detroit automakers a bailout. General Motors and Chrysler grabbed the taxpayer lifeline, but Ford decided to save itself. Under the leadership of charismatic CEO Alan Mulally, Ford had already put together a bold plan to unify its divided global operations, transform its lackluster product lineup, and overcome a dys­functional culture of infighting, backstabbing, and excuses. It was an extraordinary risk, but it was the only way the Ford family—America’s last great industrial dynasty—could hold on to their company.

Mulally and his team pulled off one of the great­est comebacks in business history. As the rest of Detroit collapsed, Ford went from the brink of bankruptcy to being the most profitable automaker in the world.

American Icon is the compelling, behind-the-scenes account of that epic turnaround. On the verge of collapse, Ford went outside the auto industry and recruited Mulally—the man who had already saved Boeing from the deathblow of 9/11—to lead a sweeping restructuring of a company that had been unable to overcome decades of mismanage­ment and denial. Mulally applied the principles he developed at Boeing to streamline Ford’s inefficient operations, force its fractious executives to work together as a team, and spark a product renaissance in Dearborn. He also convinced the United Auto Workers to join his fight for the soul of American manufacturing.

Bryce Hoffman reveals the untold story of the covert meetings with UAW leaders that led to a game-changing contract, Bill Ford’s battle to hold the Ford family together when many were ready to cash in their stock and write off the company, and the secret alliance with Toyota and Honda that helped prop up the Amer­ican automotive supply base.

In one of the great management narratives of our time, Hoffman puts the reader inside the boardroom as Mulally uses his celebrated Business Plan Review meet­ings to drive change and force Ford to deal with the painful realities of the American auto industry.

Hoffman was granted unprecedented access to Ford’s top executives and top-secret company documents. He spent countless hours with Alan Mulally, Bill Ford, the Ford family, former executives, labor leaders, and company directors. In the bestselling tradition of Too Big to Fail and The Big Short, American Icon is narrative nonfiction at its vivid and colorful best.

Ford Motor Company: The Greatest Corporate Turnaround In U.S. History
With the survivability of Ford in serious doubt, William Clay Ford, Jr. dismissed himself as CEO of Ford Motor Company in September 2006 and appointed Boeing engineer Alan R. Mulally as President and CEO. When Mr. Mulally joined Ford, the company had reached a state it had not experienced since the late 1920s and 1945. A shake-up was urgently required; it was not an assignment for the faint of heart because of Ford’s: declining profits, uncompetitive cost structure, poor product quality, unattractive cars, unhappy dealers, dissatisfied suppliers and Ford’s factories lagged behind competition. Clearly, Mr. Mulally was confronted with “Mission Impossible.” Mr. Ford and Mr. Mulally bet the farm in December 2006 with a, hey, buddy, can you spare a dime–a $23.5 billion home equity loan–an all or nothing historic gamble. This one action literally saved Ford because it allowed the company to develop its most competitive product line-up in history, including the long neglected small car segment. Concurrently, Mr. Mulally, who is truly a frontline leader in the battle of survival: reorganized Ford’s organization structure and radically changed Ford’s culture, focusing on one brand by selling the luxury brands, closed many assembly plants and discharged tens of thousands of employees. This helped to dramatically reduce the breakeven point. He reached an agreement with the UAW to improve Ford labor cost structure although it is still uncompetitive. America is witnessing one of the most remarkable corporate turnarounds in U.S. history. Ford is the new “Wunderkind” of the worldwide automotive industry. Ford’s approach is a textbook case study how to reinvent a giant company. Under Mr. Mulally, all elements of the company were transformed such as: production capacity has been reduced by 40%, the break-even level has declined by about 45%, hourly manpower reduced by 40%, product quality improved dramatically, the balance sheet has been strengthened and employee morale is sky high. Today, Mr. Mulally is celebrated as a game-changer. It is one of the few “feel good” American business stories in recent years without begging Uncle Sam for bailout money. The book includes management lessons learned which can be applied in any industry. Importantly, the book includes a detailed description how Mr. Mulally accomplished his goals.
