Does anyone agree with me that the odds of Mullaly returning to Boeing are better than 50:50.? He has Ford on track and should by now have developed a successor to keep Ford moving ahead. He owes no one at Boeing a nickle but he must have a fair idea who the smart up and comers are and where the dead wood is. One quality that people like Mullaly have is ego and I think he might be tempted if he had the chance to go back and prove to those who passed him over that he has what it takes.
What do you think..

Of course the Boeing Board need to be prepared to offer him a job in the first instance.

He has done a great job at Ford, but I believe it isn't done yet, could a bidding war start between both companies?
I believe he would be great if he ever decides to come back, plus, I believe he is still commuting between SEA and DET.

The idea of Mullaly going back to Boeing is extremely interesting if you think that Boeing is going to continue down the road for more out-sourced parts. Essentially, Mullaly could make Boeing more like Ford/GM if he were to come back. The way they assembled cars vs the way airplanes are assembled is a very interesting idea for Boeing.

I don't quite understand why so many people want him to go back to Boeing Commercial. Has anyone considered that possibly, some of the most regrettable decisions that would haunt the 787 program were made under his watch as CEO of Boeing Commercial? Like the massive outsourcing and the subsequent breakdown in the supply chain... Or rush to unveil the plane on July 8, 2007 (7-8-07)? Whether or not he made those decisions, if they were made under his watch as the CEO, then he would have to answer for them.

I don't think there's been enough discussion on his responsibility for what's going on with the 787 now. And I believe that a lot of the troubles with the 787 had their origins several years ago.



All the things I really like to do are either immoral, illegal, or fattening.

No, Mullaly has his work cut out for him at Ford. As the Eurospec cars are introduced here over the next two years - Ford has a good shot at displacing GM as "the American" car company.

Why would he do that? His work at Ford is not done.

Generally, good business-people do not act on sentiments. He doesn't need Boeing. I know the Feds took away Ford's company jets - still not a good reason.

On the other hand, Al Baker does miss Mullaly at Boeing, see his quote about Mullaly here,

Boeing is a publicly-run company with Directors and shareholders, and they must have a good case to propose this idea.
