Schneider Electric was an industry pioneer in its twin transition to a digital and sustainable solution provider. After announcing its EcoStruxure platform in 2012, the transformation got off to a slow start. The main challenge was how to mobilise a successful product company to change when the traditional business continued to perform well. The case provides (i) an inside view of the transformation programme, which went through four stages, (ii) insights on how to lead a strategic transformation in a structured manner.

Teaching objectives
