Aligning a Cross Departmental Strategy in South Asia
Client Case 1
After working with a Fortune 100 food and beverage company in China for several years to develop their China vision and strategy，we were invited to facilitate the vision and strategy of their Pakistan leadership team in Dubai.
Through facilitated discussions，senior leaders identified and drafted their strategy for the next five years. Facilitators provided further sessions after the meeting to help the senior leaders cascade the vision in their organization to gain full participation.
The Pakistan plant reported greater stability and engagement across levels and departments after the facilitated session. Engagement results showed a clearer sense of purpose and understanding of the business in key teams. To continue building on results，Sino Associates has been invited back to update the Pakistan vision and strategy in the next stage of their growth.
Manufacturing in South China
Client Case 2
A Manufacturing organization with two separate plants in Dongguan wanted to find a way to optimize work and resources between the two plants in their post-COVID 19 strategy. The two plants had discovered vulnerabilities in each site during the COVID crisis and realized that by collaborating they could help ensure that both could survive and thrive going forward even if they were exposed to a similar crisis.
Through a two-part facilitation series teams went through the fifteen steps of mapping out change vision, impact and available resources to support a series of projects that would serve to bring the two plants closer together. Between sessions teams took a customized Change Impact Assessment and came back a month later with with initial steps to build detailed strategies and plans to ensure that nearly 20 projects could move forward.
After the second session participants returned to finish their detailed project plans with collaborators from each plant. Reassessing change readiness showed that teams were more confident in the vision and change direction and additionally felt they had more agency and resources to execute the change with senior leadership support.

A Fortune 100 Fast Moving Consumer Goods company underwent a realignment shift from being a part of APAC to becoming their own global region and market. In order to take advantage of their new flexibility and opportunity to service their customers, they engaged Sino’s facilitation team to hold a special two-day workshop to engage leaders in a new vision to triple their reach in ten years.
The custom designed two-day session included guest speakers from industry innovators.

Based on feedback leaders also identified trends for the next three years including accelerating digitalization of sales and distribution. Feedback from China Region CEO and his team indicated that the senior leaders were more aligned and clearer as to what actions would take them into the future they envisioned.
