of chickens to cross roads.

MACHIAVELLI: The point is
that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The end of
crossing the road justifies whatever motive there was.

Deregulation of the chicken's side of the road was threatening its
dominant market position. The chicken was faced with significant
challenges to create and develop the competencies required for the
newly competitive market. Andersen Consulting, in a partnering
relationship with the client, helped the chicken by rethinking its
physical distribution strategy and implementation processes. Using
the Poultry Integration Model (PIM), Andersen helped the chicken use
its skills, methodologies, knowledge, capital and experiences to
align the chicken's people, processes and technology in support of
its overall strategy within a Program Management framework. Andersen
Consulting convened a diverse cross-spectrum of road analysts and
best chickens along with Anderson consultants with deep skills in
the transportation industry to engage in a two-day itinerary of
meetings in order to leverage their personal knowledge capital, both
tacit and explicit, and to enable them to synergize with each other
in order to achieve the implicit goals of delivering and
successfully architecting and implementing an enterprise-wide value
framework across the continuum of poultry cross-median processes.
The meeting was held in a park-like setting enabling and creating an
impactful environment which was strategically based,
industry-focused, and built upon a consistent, clear, and unified
market message and aligned with the chicken's mission, vision, and
core values. This was conducive towards the creation of a total
business integration solution. Andersen Consulting helped the
chicken change to become more successful.
