Traces the evolution of America's leading producer of automotive diesel engines. Cruikshank and Sicilia examine how Cummins has distinguished itself from its industry peers and from most U.S. manufacturers of the same rank. They describe a corporate culture, strongly shaped by the talents and personalities of the company's three leaders, which defines the company's notable characteristics: long-standing family control, technological leadership, a unique distribution system, market share leadership, regulatory activism, a strong tradition of philanthropy and community support, and innovative production and labor-management methods. One of the few Fortune 500 firms to remain independent and focused on a single business, Cummins Engine Co. has played a key role in the spread of diesel power and the rise of interstate trucking.
