INSEAD Private Equity Initiative Survey for Family Businesses
INSEAD Private Equity Initiative Survey
Your Family Business – A Competitive Edge?
INSEAD has launched a research project with family firms in Asia that seeks to measure relative competitive advantage and their ability to produce sustainable growth. Through an online survey, INSEAD will assess each participating firm’s institutionalisation score according to six key attributes then test whether high-scoring firms are better equipped to produce superior operating performance than their peers. The final report will outline practical steps that all family firms can take to improve their performance, drawing on academic research and interviews with successful family firms. For a detailed project overview, see here.
To deliver value and foster a like-minded community at INSEAD, families that participate in the project’s 10-15 minute survey will receive:
- Free benchmarking report: On completing the survey, respondents receive The Family Business Map, a customised report allowing them to benchmark their business against their peers.
- Invitations to exclusive INSEAD events: A series of by-invitation-only events and workshops that build on this research.
- Prime access to the final report: The Institutionalisation of Asian Family Firms, where we will share the challenges faced and tactics to address them.
To make the outcome for the business meaningful, the survey requires input from senior family leaders or a non-family member with deep insight into the family dynamics and the operating business.

GLOBAL TALENT COMPETITIVENESS INDEX (GTCI) 2017 ASIAN LAUNCH
The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) 2017 Asian Launch was held on INSEAD Asia campus in Singapore on 18 April. INSEAD Dean Ilian Mihov gave the opening address and highlighted the important role of education and how educational systems have to help learners foster learning agility.
The GTCI is an annual benchmarking report that measures the ability of countries to compete for talent. It combines the academic research and expertise of INSEAD led by Bruno Lanvin, Executive Director for Global Indices, and Professor Paul Evans, Academic Director, Global Talent Competitiveness Index, the Human Capital Leadership Institute of Singapore (HCLI) and The Adecco Group. In Asia Pacific, Singapore is ranked second globally for the fourth consecutive year while Australia (6th), New Zealand (14th), Japan (22nd), Malaysia (28th) and South Korea (29th), rank within Top 30 globally.
Focusing on “Talent and Technology”, the 2017 report explores the effects of technological change on talent competitiveness and the future of work, arguing that while routine jobs at all levels continue to be replaced by machines, technology is also creating new opportunities. Project and collaborative skills become essential for the innovative work that is opening up. At the Asian Launch, Professor Paul Evans elaborated on this year’s findings and moderated a panel discussion centred around what countries, organisations and people can do to harness the benefits of technology while minimising the drawbacks.
From right: The panel discussion was moderated by Professor Paul Evans, Academic Director and co-editor of the Global Talent Competitiveness Index. The panel of global talent experts consisting of Su-Yen Wong, CEO, Human Capital Leadership Institute of Singapore (HCLI); Christophe Duchatellier, CEO Asia Pacific, The Adecco Group; and Janet Ang, Vice-President, Industry Solutions & Smarter Cities, IBM Asia Pacific, IBM Industry Academic Member, shared their views with the audience.
