Historically a decentralized and business-unit driven organization, in 2009 Cargill decided to create a new global corporate function to manage transportation and logistics. The new leader partnered with Organization Effectiveness to lead a global design team in building the business case, developing the new corporate function’s strategy and value proposition, identifying core capabilities, and designing the organization and implementation plan. The team achieved major milestones on schedule, with the new organization launched in June 2011. Significant value has been delivered to the business during a time of global market volatility and turbulence. The presenters will review the process utilized, challenges in designing global, enterprise level organizations and unexpected lessons learned in implementing a global function that manages complex modes of transportation and logistics in 65 countries and over $4 B in spend.

Audience: This webcast is intended for executives from any function charged with leading or supporting organization design initiatives within their companies.
