Free sample

By 2020, cities throughout Europe will have banned entry by internal-combustion engine vehicles. Almost all countries will have considerably stricter urban transport regulations in place. Most will have embraced autonomous technology as a key element in saving lives. Many will have implemented new building and development codes in support of shared mobility and reduced congestion. Virtually all new cars sold by 2020 will have the sort of advanced driver assistance systems that allow for full-autonomous driving on highways (and highly-supported driving in cities). By 2020, Uber, Google and Apple will have launched their electric, fully autonomous fleets. Road platoons of driverless trucks will leave the port of Rotterdam across Europe. Companies will have reevaluated their own use of vehicle assets. All will strive for vast improvements on emissions and sustainability; many will reach the conclusion that utilisation rates must be improved upon; some will have launched pilot programs using autonomous logistics, including drones. The world of mobility is undergoing a vast transformation. This book highlights the changes inherent in the mobility revolution, and how corporate and commercial users are playing a key role in supporting a breakthrough by 2020.

No discussion on mobility can exclude the broader context – the cities, the countryside, the local and national economic, political and social environments, as well as, of course, the technological progress that is being made in industries that are associated with this revolution. The urban environments which we call home and that are part of our identities will evolve. Through the air quality we lack, the infrastructure we use, the mobility we need, and the way we work, our lives are being transformed in fundamental ways. After automotive, first tier suppliers, insurance and financial services, and public transport, more and more industries and companies are beginning to experience the impact of the mobility revolution. This book also delves into smart energy, smart infrastructure and the use of data, but always maintains its clear focus on who is important: the city-zen. “The mobility revolution represents the biggest paradigm shift since the advent of personal transportation. The impact goes beyond just transportation, however, and Lukas’s new book offers an invaluable insight into the transformation of cites, mobility and society in the coming decades” - Mark Preston, CEO, PrestonEV “Lukas Neckermann is clearly enthusiastic about the promise of technology, yet he does not fall into the trap of imposed top-down solutions by experts and ideologues. In his book, he rather advocates for a human-centered bottom-up approach where people will have choices according to their own preferences. A well readable book with a wealth of information about the transformative challenges and opportunities that cities – and their residents – will face in the 21st century.” - Richard Straub, President, Peter Drucker Society Europe
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.

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.
