In a bid to scale up its numbers and stay ahead of its rivals, Hindustan Unilever (HUL) has created 15 teams for each category with separate targets in sales and innovations.
Each team, named as Country Category Business Teams or CCBTs, will run as independent groups and people will get an opportunity to explore their entrepreneurial side.
“These are led by CCBT heads; most of them would be in early 30s and are fully empowered to deliver the plan for the year. This has unleashed huge amount of trapped capacity. Our job is to mentor and coach them. The functional representatives in the CCBT represent the function and in turn dovetail CCBT agenda with the functional agenda,” HUL’s managing director Sanjiv Mehta told ET.
The move also comes in the wake of Patanjali’s rise to a Rs 10,000 crore company. Many FMCG companies have tweaked their strategies and ventured into yurveda sector..
