Pepsi Internal Control Procedures
The Pepsi Co. has many shareholders that they have to answer too when certain things just do not seem to add up. They have different teams of management to oversee every area of operation and to make sure the company is running effectively and gaining the best profit possible. Like other companies over the last few years they have had their ups and downs in certain areas. Though in 2011 they came up with a new operating model that would help simplify the process, make faster decisions, reduce costs, and get products to the market faster. Pepsi is motivated by the shareholder value and does everything possible to make sure that happens. They do this by maintaining and growing in key markets, looking for other ways to grow, and keeping a close eye on capital investments to insure the shareholders a return on their investments. Pepsi has many teams that work together in the beverage and snack departments to research and make sure that the proper choices are made and they can continue to grow in every aspect of the company whether it is in the United States or in one of the many other countries that they have companies in. The shareholders have a lot to do with a companies’ success because if they are not happy then a company knows that they have to make changes, even if it means management changes.
