When you operate in 180 countries, with a variety of software, hardware, and connectivity, and employees with varying digital expertise, maximizing employee productivity with technology can be a challenge. Procter & Gamble's ambitious answer: upgrade 60,000 P&G employees' digital capabilities in six weeks, with minimal disruption, while providing everyone with relevant training.

P&G called the program AMP IT UP. PC upgrades had to happen overnight, one location at a time. "Save the date" messages went out four weeks in advance, with information on how to drop off PCs, pick them up, and receive one-on-one and small-group training on the new tools at an on-site event.

Among the upgrades: the ability to boot up faster, 25 times more inbox capacity, easier password management, desktop and file sharing tools, and a range of new videoconferencing capabilities.
