Reference: IMD-7-1494

The case focuses on Indonesia Port Corporation (IPC) and its ongoing US$2.5 billion expansion, one of the country’s biggest public projects, whose first phase is due to be completed in 2014. It examines the leadership of the company’s President Director R.J. Lino and the transformation agenda he has articulated. IPC’s ambition is not only to overcome Indonesia’s mixed track record in delivering public infrastructure projects, but also to emerge as a world-class player – dynamic, competitive and customer-focused.
