Grupo Santander sustained its growth through the merger and acquisitions which enabled them to expand on a much larger scale.

The major findings indicate that the pilot project team members faced a challenge in adapting global management system in local operation. Furthermore, it is found that the Grupo Santander in Chile use multiple application system that increased the risk to extract the data needed. Moreover, the inexperience team member of pilot project worsened the problem arise. Based on the analysis of the case, the project MIS has realized was badly planned from the start. This report
recommends that Grupo Santander need build a constant business model management and clearly identified the systems and processes that are now used in each place. Besides that, leaders should increase the training among the team members who involved in the core project. This way, implementation of new MIS will be easier to execute in locally and internationally.
