Case Study #1
If Hindustan Lever Limited (HLL), India’s largest consumer goods company, was in another market space, say, for example, publishing, it would, first of all, teach its prospect base to read. If it sold cars, HLL would open driver education schools to teach prospects how to drive safely. As it is, HLL sells products that clean and products to eat and drink. The company has applied a commitment to following the highest standards of corporate behavior, leading-edge science and technology and creative marketing to the development of its business model. The company’s statement of corporate purpose is to “meet the everyday needs of people, everywhere.” Those needs differ wildly within India, and HLL has done an exceptional job of meeting them, as evidenced by the the company’s top line growth and bottom line profitability.
