A British-based company and proud to be so, but with a different vision to the "imperial" one. An international company. A description of Imperial Chemical Industries. The recent acquisition of ICI Canada. Some details of the organisation, with a focus on two aspects: strategy setting and management succession. First, some contextual details: the main features of the business landscape worldwide; how it is changing; the implications for companies like ICI. Thinking and behaving internationally. Management development and succession planning as part of a constant aim to achieve the best possible fit between our organisation and the demands of the global marketplace. The principle to follow: the global marketplace demands that we make the best use of all the resources available, whether human or material, wherever they may be located.
