The Project Bullet case study is about how Nestle Infant Nutrition revitalized its global infant formula business. It deals with strategic issues like renovating existing and aging brands of the company and also bringing in new marketing innovations to an otherwise stagnant business. This case describes how the marketing team unified the company’s infant formula product portfolios across markets while bringing consistency in marketing and sales practices. Another important element that the case brings out is how the project team achieved widespread country management support towards making its marketing strategy globally consistent and effective.
