Jack Perkowski established ASIMCO (Asian Strategic Investment Corp.) in February 1994. ASIMCO became one of the largest components organisations serving the Chinese motor vehicle industry. This case shows the process of human capital development at ASIMCO. It describes ASIMCO's management restructuring efforts, its management development strategy, and its system of fast-tracking leaders through the leadership development programme. Instead of imposing Western management models onto China, ASIMCO strongly believed in creating a centralised, top-down management model that could be adapted to China's unique environment. This case studies the process of management development and the challenges for companies operating in China. It examines the benefits and challenges of localisation and grooming leaders internally.
