Hi All,

I am doing an essay for university with my thesis being "Most Organisational Structure are the result of compromise" and I have chosen to use Airbus and the Pan-European ownership issue. However, I'm afraid I do not know enough information about the situation.

My Questions to anyone who can answer them are:

* organisational culture of airbus - american type, or a combination of franco/german/spanish culture
* centralised or decentralised?
* national interests or airbus interests?
* strategy - the type of competitive advantage Airbus is looking for and how it strategy support this.
* division of labour - result of organisational structure compromise

If anyone can provide me with history of the nationality issues that Airbus has faced and/or answers to the above questions, I would be so grateful.

Kind Regards,
AA7295

I suggest that you go through EADS' and Airbus' websites, they both have quite a lot of information on them - and there are a number of books out in the market that'll give you anywhere between a very good and detailed overview, down to, unfortunately, a very narrow-sighted (and beating the old, dead horse of "it's just a socialist conglomerate designed to provide jobs and rob the European taxpayer of their hard-earned money"-mantra).

Other than that, there are a couple of a.net members working for Airbus - or with companies that are close to Airbus... maybe they'll chime in with a couple of links... I'd love to help with a couple of book titles, but they're still packed in boxes since about 10 months now, since I moved here from my old flat...  Wink

Have fun - you've certainly chosen an interesting topic.



Smile - it confuses people!
