Fung Academy

At the Fung Group, we recognise that people are our greatest asset. The Fung Academy exists to cultivate talent, accelerate learning and develop future capabilities in companies across the Group. This is accomplished in three ways: Leadership Development, the spreading of Sustainability Best Practices and the fostering of a culture of Innovation and Experimentation.

Leadership Development programmes provide a platform for equipping leadership with new tools for innovation and experimentation and are delivered in collaboration with university partners around the globe, including MIT and Stanford.

Sustainability programmes support corporate-wide initiatives, including the Fung Manufacturing Excellence Program through which we equip strategic suppliers with the best lean manufacturing concepts. We also provide digital learning modules to help suppliers become more efficient, responsible and sustainable.

Our emerging work around Innovation & Experimentation centres on important questions that will shape the future of the Group's businesses, such as "How might we lead in the new frontiers of retailing?", and "What will be the next disruptive technology?" In pursuing a culture of experimentation we incubate new ideas and capabilities that manifest in real-world experiments, for example, working with Toys "R" Us in Hong Kong to bring 3D printing to retail; piloting "big data" analytics programmes across the Fung Group, and engaging the whole organisation in a conversation about open innovation.
