Customised Programme Case Study - Jardines | INSEAD

What is Jardines ?

Asian institution, Jardines, operates a vast and diverse portfolio of companies across Asia. In 2019, it had all the typical advantages of a successful conglomerate, but also some disadvantages.

The company’s leaders were keen to strengthen what it means to be part of Jardines across its various business units – to build more of a common sense of belonging, a commitment to sharing expertise and leveraging scale, and in particular to build a common culture of leadership for those identified as corporate talent for the future.

As part of its new “momentum-shifting” Group and HR strategies, Jardines approached INSEAD to build a suite of world-class leadership-development programmes.

The focus was on three core career transitions, where business units were losing or having to buy in talent. The resulting EMERGE,
GROW and INSPIRE programmes formed a continuum of learning across a common curriculum, designed around Jardines’ business priorities and differentiated for different levels of leadership.
