Case Study

Panama Ports Company


An international port in the throes of managing rapid growth and the threat of competition engages FranklinCovey to assist the leadership in building and maintaining a company culture. 

Executive Overview


Panama Ports Company (PPC) operates the largest post in Latin America and is a member of Hutchison Port Holdings. 10 years after PPC was founded, the company started facing the serious challenges of rapid growth and the threat of competition.


PPC engaged FranklinCovey to assist their leadership team in building and maintaining a company culture based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 4 Disciplines of Execution. The company defined their mission and vision and went about training their employees in the new FranklinCovey programs.


The new company culture at PPC has produced results far beyond the number of containers moved in a day or week. “Panama Ports has been recognized as one of the best companies to work for, and that is something we are proud of, and we have done it in a short period of time.” – Tatiana De Garcia, Supervisor of Planning and Quality Control
