Just over a decade ago, Heineken USA faced an identity crisis. It was the darling of Heineken, having grown to US$2 billion in sales, and the dominant player in the premium beer market within the US. Yet, the booming rise of craft beer was turning Heineken’s business upside down and stealing key leaders.

A transforming world required Heineken USA to re-assess its core value across three critical stakeholder groups:

  1. Customers
  2. Employees
  3. Parent company, Heineken N.V.

But stopping our work at the top team wouldn’t do – our goal was to deeply connect the head and heart of all senior leaders to ignite a collective passion for the mission and work of this talented group.
Bringing together the top 100 leaders, we went on a 3-day journey to help each discover their purpose.

From the clarity of their own purposes, the Heineken team then collaborated to co-create the deeper purpose of this group of gifted leaders: Heineken USA’s Organizational Purpose.
