Company monitor

The product groups Pharma, Coatings and Chemicals do not form an organisational layer. Akzo Nobel has its activities grouped in three product groups, but there is no organisational structure on this level and no decision-making on this level. And therefore, almost no staff on this level, except for the Senior Group Directors. Their main task is the technology coordination between the BU’s belonging to same product group. The grouping in 3 product groups is in fact only a grouping on paper. Every product group consists of 3 to 8 Business Units (BU’s). The General Managers of the BU’s report directly to the responsible person in the Board of Management. The BU’s belonging to the same product group are operating very independently from each other. read more less
