This means: strengthen the core business (CORE), lead in new future fields (CASE), adapt corporate culture (CULTURE) and adapt divisional structure (COMPANY). The benchmark for each of these modules is the fifth and most important C: the CUSTOMER.

Philip Morris Germany

The Philip Morris GmbH is a company of Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI), the world’s leading international tobacco company and sells in Germany, among others the brands MARLBORO and L&M. Philip Morris wants to get out of selling cigarettes. A tobacco company that smashes its own business model? In fact, more than ten years ago, Philip Morris launched a multi-billion dollar research program to develop less harmful alternatives to the cigarette. The first result of this research is a tobacco heater. However, the development of these new, potentially risk-reduced products is only the first step in self-initiated change. Because with these new products, the entire company is changing: the production, sales and marketing, the invitation to the scientists, physicians and authorities to examine the new products and not least the corporate culture. In short, the company is in the midst of the most radical change in its industry since the invention of the cigarette – and is actively driving it forward.
