Abstract

In the closing months of 1985, the president and chief executive officer of Hiram Walker initiated a thorough review of the company''s management structure. A consultant was engaged to interview a range of senior executives and to prepare an independent assessment of the company''s situation.

At this time it was announced that two tasks forces, one for North America and another for International, were being appointed with a charge to identify organizational issues and options and to report to the management committee by April 1.
