Innovation and Growth: The Case of Junior Achievement Nigeria


Junior Achievement Nigeria (JAN) is a nonprofit organization that came to Nigeria in 1999 under the leadership of Simi Nwogugu, its executive director. JAN uses volunteers to teach young Nigerians essential skills to allow them to bridge the gap between education and work through hands-on programs on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. Since its inception, JAN has faced a myriad of societal, bureaucratic and organizational challenges as it continues to grow and impact young Nigerians. This case study explores innovation and growth in a nonprofit against the broad scope of challenges to do with partnership, human resource and talent management.
