North America Marketing Strategic Plan, Church and Dwight


Leaders of Church and Dwight wanted to most-fully tap the North America Marketing Organization's collective knowledge and experience and create a marketing plan that would deliver the company's growth goals. Following several years of growth through acquisition, senior leaders wanted to refocus the company on achieving organic growth from core product lines. We are asked to deliver a planning process that would bring all nine product lines together to create a North America Strategic Marketing Plan for the organization and create a new performance management framework.
