James McNerney has delivered for what must be for some CEO’s one of the best roles in the world, so what drives the man to keep pushing ahead, is it his leadership skill’s, his ability too gain that extra mile from his team and their teams or is it just money.

I wish him good luck with his new role it will be interesting to follow his performance and see how Boeing copes with Airbus in the next 5 – 10 years.

Will James be one of the few CEO’s to adopt at an early stage the new media to gain support from the internet viewers and possibly his staff, will he adopt a 21’st century approach to communication or stick to what already works in the world, of as Hugh Hewitt states MSM (Main Stream Media) http://www.hughhewitt.com
