China Resources Corporation (A): 6S Management
In 2006, Jiang Wei, CFO of China Resources Corporation, was seeking to implement a variety of new management control systems in a complex diversified corporation during a period of rapid economic expansion in mainland China. Instilling efficiency, productivity, management, and control into what had been a traditional state-owned enterprise posed challenges on many fronts. The case enables a discussion of the various ways in which balanced scorecards and strategy maps can be integrated with traditional management control systems to govern strategy implementation in a diversified corporation. Additionally, it allows students to appreciate the benefits and challenges of using highly formal performance management systems in the face of strategic uncertainty.
