Yara's International Challenges: In search of critical size and structure

Atlas-AFMI Label "recommended of pedagogical interest"

The case gives a brief outlook of the major world challenges within the chemical fertilizer industry in the dawn of the Third Millennium. It then positions Yara as a key actor in this industry, highlighting its unique advantages and presents a detailed international timeline starting from Norwegian Hydro fertilizers activity's expansion since its inception. Hence, successive phases of the corporate geographical display are distinguished, introducing this international firm's resulting adaptation issues. After a focus on Yara's corporate values, culture and diversity, emphasis is given to Human Resources and financial functions, to spur reflection on the international development and implementation of strategy.
