A change of core business: the transition of Royal Philips to the Healthcare industry is a case study that analyses the strategy of Philips, a global leader in the Healthcare Industry. Philips operated in too many industries with a severe impact on efficiency in the 1990´s, which resulted in a sharp decrease in income in 1996. Consequently, Philips started to restructure and sold parts of the business which were underperforming or did not fit in the strategic portfolio. It increased its focus on the Healthcare division through acquisitions as it was a very promising industry. Philips successfully changed its core business which was vital for the survival of the company.
