Challenges and opportunities creating a group wide transformation
From the Getinge Group website; ”Over the past three years, Getinge has experienced a challenging trend. Organic growth has not reached the desired level and profitability has declined. Getinge’s conclusion is that its established strategy is correct for addressing these challenges, but the company’s former decentralized organizational structure made the implementation of Group wide priorities and initiatives difficult. It has also been difficult to leverage scale to the desired extent in the existing structure.
For this reason, Getinge launched a transformation program in 2015 aimed at enabling the implementation of the strategy and thus realizing its full potential.” Share insights concerning:
• Compare key success factors in a large transformation journey
• Discuss how to engage the business
• Discuss the role technology could have in a global transformation strategy
