Leveraging technology to drive competitive advantage

 
Hi folks, we kick off week one with the case study you’ll be using for the balance of the class. Read the case carefully; one big difference to take note of in the new Reynolds environment; they have acquired one company, and entered into a joint venture with another. The acquisition requires integration. The joint venture imposes no obligation on either company to change environments, though some work will need to be done to share data effectively.
Be specific in your responses; this is a summary, but management will want to know how these recommendations apply specifically to Reynolds. – Chris
