An innovative, globally active group for electronic consumer goods faces major challenges in this fiercely competitive industry. The company wanted to optimise its distributed software development capacities and exploit potentials for synergies and for cost cutting. This task required that attention be paid to the specific requirements of the individual product lines and the specific fields of knowledge related to them.
Zühlke conducted interviews and project reviews at all sites and in all product lines to determine success factors, special characteristics, and strengths and weakness in the different organisational units for software development. Business requirements were compared to project execution and the conditions involved.
