How to ‘glue’ (following a recent merger) the new Research & Innovation (R&I) corporate function leadership team around a strong R&I vision, with a legacy of very different visions on R&I approaches, with high expectations on the breakthrough technologies from corporate strategy in the next five years and high independence of Global Business Units (GBUs)?
What we did
Worked with leadership team to set its vision in line with the corporate strategy, while engaging the entire R&I family, to develop, test and refine; and engage wider stakeholders.
Impact of our work
- A clear, credible & engaging vision for R&I that is embraced by the function as well as the business units;
- Readiness to take the required action within and across teams to realise the vision;
- Profoundly increased trust and understanding of how to collaborate between teams across the function and between the function and the business units.
