Working as a global team
We’re like one big global team. Earlier today, for instance, I was working on Tang. Tang is a global brand, so we have people all over the world coming up with innovative ideas about how we can improve the product. Their ideas can help me and my ideas can help them. So even though I’m based in India, I can reach out to colleagues in Latin America and we can work together.
An important part of this is our intranet portals. This is where we present our work. So whenever I do something on cocoa here in India, I can load it onto our system so that anyone at Mondelēz International in any part of the world can access it. It’s really useful.
We also have centers of excellence for every ingredient, of every product, of every brand. In the UK, for example, we have a team that works exclusively on cocoa. Which means that if I need to know something about cocoa processing or the different grades of cocoa, I know where to ask.
