Allied Domecq, which operated across 60 countries, was going through a major business change strategy. The company required a robust business case and implementation strategy to standardise the infrastructure and associated support services. This involved rationalising a multitude of standards, as well as uniting many diverse cultures.
Key to the success of the project was the transition from a regional and business unit model into a unified virtual global model. The company also sought to implement new PC technology platforms to enable future growth and migrate some of the components of its infrastructure to an external supplier.
