Molson Coors – Remaining Resilient: How our clients are responding to COVID-19


"The Integrated Tactical Planning principals we put in place before the COVID-19 outbreak have allowed us to keep control over our multi-site operation.

Whilst we have had to close some sites we have managed to move product around our network to keep the business moving. Without our daily and weekly governance structure it would have been easy to lose control of the process with each area doing their own thing, but by using ITP and our daily calls we have co-ordinated a joined up, centrally led response that has minimised the cost to our business and maximised our output for the half of the customer base that is still operating."
