To address our strategic focus areas and deliver on our vision and targets, we have identified a set of high level actions that we are pursuing throughout the company. These are: Deliver dependably, Grow organically, Innovate, Simplify, Standardize and Continuously improve.

All functions and businesses within the company developed specific action plans in 2013, consistent with these high level actions. In 2014, we made progress on implementing these plans in all three Business Areas and this is explained further in the Business performance section.
