29 February, 2016 – INSEAD has received top honours in The Case Centre Awards 2016, an annual contest recognising outstanding case writers and teachers around the globe.

Professor of Marketing Pierre Chandon received dual honours for his Outstanding Contribution to the Case Method Award and the Overall Case Award for ‘ L'Oréal in China: Marketing Strategies for Turning Around Chinese Luxury Cosmetic Brand Yue Sai ’, a case study co-authored with Haiyang Yang. Professor Chandon is now a three-time winner of the coveted Overall Award for the most popular case across all nine management categories.

The winning case tackles the complex cultural challenges that even successful multinational firms face when doing business in China. It illustrates the fundamental dilemma between functional and lifestyle positioning and the surprising way it was resolved by L'Oréal’s then-struggling Chinese cosmetics brand, Yue Sai.

Associate Professors of Organisational Behaviour William Maddux and Roderick Swaab won the Human Resource Management/Organisational Behaviour category award for their case ‘ Ricardo Semler: A Revolutionary Model of Leadership ’, co-authored with Elin Williams and Betania Tanure. The case tells the story of a Brazilian business leader who led his family marine pump business to multi-national, multi-sector success through a radical process of workplace democratisation.
