4 pages
October 2008
Reference: IMD-3-1717

The second part of this series discusses the decision reached at the April 2004 board meeting to form Nestlé Nutrition as a self-standing business. Before becoming fully operational in January 2006, decisions had to be made about the organization, including the capabilities and skills needed for running the business, and about the interface with Nestlé in the markets. How would these decisions be implemented given the fact that Nestlé Nutrition was an internally carved out organization?
