Abstract

This is the first of a two-case series (302-065-1 and 302-066-1). This case describes the current strategic challenges facing Xansa, a medium-sized IT services company headquartered in the UK. Under its former name, FI Group, the company had grown successfully during the 1990s as a major supplier of IT outsourcing services. Faced with a changing marketplace, FI Group had undertaken a series of bold acquisitions in the late 1990s. Now, in mid-2000, the company faced the challenge of integrating these acquired companies in an uncertain marketplace, while also considering its future growth options outside the UK. A further challenge was how to do all of this without damaging the distinctive culture and organisation that had made the company so successful over the last decade.
