Adidas has its roots in Germany but it is a truly global company. They employ over 62,000 people and their teams are made up of people from over 100 different nations. These numbers alone can easily suggest that adidas is quite a large and also multifaceted organization. True. But they keep things simple, lean, and fast. And they will use this approach to give an overview of what the company is all about.
