    The story behind the innovative widebody jet’s “troubled but also path-breaking development,” with hundreds of photos (Airways). 
     
    With the launch of its superjumbo, the A380, Airbus made what looked like an unbeatable bid for commercial aviation supremacy. But archrival Boeing responded: Not so fast. 
     
    Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner would generate more excitement—and more orders—than any commercial airplane in the company’s history. This book offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the first all-new airplane developed by Boeing since its 1990 launch of the 777. With hundreds of photographs and diagrams, Boeing 787 Dreamliner closely details the design and building of Boeing’s new twin-engine jet airliner, as well as the drama behind its launch: the key players, the controversies, the critical decisions about materials and technology—the plastic reinforced with carbon fiber that make this mid-sized widebody super lightweight. And here, from every angle, is the Dreamliner itself, in all its gleaming readiness to rule the air.

    "Lean Leadership and Management: A Practical Guide to Streamlining Success" serves as a comprehensive manual for leaders looking to implement lean principles in their organizations effectively. This guide breaks down the theoretical underpinnings of lean methodologies into actionable strategies, demonstrating how leaders can cultivate environments that embrace continuous improvement, efficiency, and customer-centricity. 
    The book starts with a deep dive into the fundamentals of lean thinking, explaining the core principles such as value stream mapping, waste elimination, and the continuous improvement process known as Kaizen. It emphasizes how these principles are not just tools but part of a broader philosophical approach to management that requires a change in mindset from top leadership levels down to frontline employees. 
    One of the standout features of the guide is its focus on the role of leadership in lean transformations. It argues that successful lean implementation is less about the tools and techniques and more about the behavior and commitment of the leaders. The book presents the traits of effective lean leaders—such as humility, curiosity, and empathy—and illustrates how these qualities are crucial in fostering a culture that is open to change and continuous improvement. 
    Practical case studies are scattered throughout the text, providing real-world examples of challenges and solutions in implementing lean strategies. These case studies help bridge the gap between theory and practice, showing readers how various concepts can be applied in different organizational contexts. Additionally, the guide includes templates and checklists to help leaders assess their current practices, plan lean initiatives, and measure their progress over time.
