CorpU Solutions: Driving Culture Change

Three Week Sprints Improve Culture & Produce Productivity Turnaround for Multinational Retailer

Who

One of the world’s largest multinational retailers serving hundreds of millions of customers every week.

The Challenge

In this large organization, profitability hinges on the productivity of thousands of warehouses that serve the stores and their customers. How many boxes go out the door every hour of every day – is it fast enough? What do you do when turnover rises and productivity declines?


Complications

The Complication


The supply chain leadership of this organization had a particular problem. Productivity was down, and it was threatening their ability to meet the larger profit goals of the company. Completing traditional turnover programs would take two years – and they would miss their deadline for improvement.
