BakeAway is an ambitious and innovative pastry and dough manufacturer based in Corby. Starting as a family run business in 2010, the company joined the Cérélia group, an international leader in chilled dough products, in 2016.
The development of new products and the partnership with Cérélia, saw BakeAway experience a period of significant rapid growth. The General Manager recognised that as a result of the exponential growth and the need to focus on operational demands, the senior managers and their respective departments had started to demonstrate silo working, contributing to less effective communication between departments. There was concern that this disjoined way of working would only increase, given the impending move to new premises and the expected continued growth.
Departments were working towards their own goals rather than that of the company as a whole. The General Manager was quick to recognise that action needed to be taken and wanted to involve all the leadership team to ensure buy-in from across the business.
